Bruce Gives Familiar Update On Transfers And Confirms Wilson Not Risked With Slight Hamstring Injury



Steve Bruce has spoken to the press after tonight’s 2-0 win at Burton Albion. Unfortunately, there’s been no progress with transfers as Bruce has revealed Newcastle have made no official bids for any targets just yet.

Here is a tweet from BBC Newcastle’s Matthew Raisbeck.

It appears that talks are continuing for a couple of players with no breakthrough expected until the week before the season kicks off. These ‘irons in the fire’ are likely domestic loan signings like Axel Tuanzebe of Manchester United.

One of our reported targets, Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, looks set for Crystal Palace. So our list of targets is getting thin so whoever Bruce is referencing, Newcastle can’t afford to miss out.

Joe Willock remains the top target and there’s no real update on that front. Bruce still maintains he’s plugging away to get the midfielder back but again has warned that there will be a cut-off point.

Bruce has also given an update on Callum Wilson’s knock. While he downplays his absence a bit, it’s another hamstring injury for our star striker that kept him out tonight. Bruce has tried to allay fears by saying he would likely have played a part if it was a league match.

Hopefully, Bruce’s timeframe is correct and Wilson will be back in training next week. There are just over two weeks left before the season opener against West Ham. Newcastle have no new faces in the door and a growing list of injured players.

Though thankfully, it looks like Allan Saint-Maximin is slowly recovering from his illness. The Frenchman could play a part in next weekend’s friendly against Norwich at St. James’ Park according to Bruce.

    No frogpack sounds better. If you listen to theme I posted instead of wolf sound it would start with a frog sound. One of our finisher move could be the frog splash like rey mysterios and eddie guerreros

    Have I read that correctly???

    If it had been a league game he would of risked a 4-6 week injury, that explains our injury record then!

    Let’s get this straight

    Everyone on this blog agrees with you
    But we are all frustrated that there is Nowt we can do about it so why call us PR and give us who are true supportes (albeit with different opinions) shit
    When we can’t do anything about the crap we are in,try to come up with a plan and if it’s good we will follow you if you can’t just say and we can just get on with being erelevent

    A little worrying Bruce has announced we have made no bids. Is that meant as we have no current bids on the table, or we have made no bids all summer? Confirms the rumours on twitter of a bid for Willock on the table was nonsense.

    Of course we don’t know our genuine targets, and those heavily linked who have gone elsewhere may not have been them, but with a couple of weeks till the opening game you would like to think we have made approaches.

    He waved then they started singing “you fat bastard”

    They’ve fully mocked him”

    “Wow, is that right jane”

    Neil wrote it so i believe it 🙂

    i wouldn’t have known either. they did pass it out of defence even if there seemed to be one nervous moment. i didn’t see Gillespie (if it was him) having to make any big saves though.

    Not even any fracking bids in when our negotiations seem to be harder than the Middle East peace process. No one will be signed b4 season starts calling it now, we might get a couple of loans just before window shuts.

    I’d love to see Willock back, but we could do with a couple of midfielders, allowing Matty a season on loan with regular minutes. If we had another midfielder in by now, we would be in a position of strength/stronger position when speakibg to Arsenal over Willock.

    Willock will leave on loan or permanently, but Arsenal hold the cards at the moment. We sign a midfielder, and all of a sudden Willock is less of a priority, and we don’t look as desperate.

    Jane,

    From what I saw, there were no saves to make.
    I did like the distribution (very few hoofs, maybe a couple)

    My bad on the Freddy comment (although I did condition it on performing well overall)

    Right now simply stating the reality of our situaton is enough
    Since the turds paying people to try hand hide it

    If its good enough for him to pay people it good enough for me to point it out

    Im sure he will be delighted all that cash made no actual difference
