Wolves beat Newcastle 2-1 before the international break

After the club's 305m takeover, Steve Bruce will remain in Newcastle's charge for Sunday's Premier League match against Tottenham.

Amanda Staveley, the new part-owner of the club, stated that they want to be patient and thoughtful in their approach and that change doesn't happen overnight.

Staveley stated that Bruce, who will be celebrating his 1,000th game as manager, will be the first to know if things change.

Newcastle is second in the league, having been unbeaten this season.

Last week saw the completion of a Saudi Arabian-backed takeover, ending Mike Ashley's 14-year tenure as Magpies owner.

Bruce is under increasing pressure and many fans want him to leave.

Staveley, Financier: "We had an extremely busy week reviewing and getting to know the people. It is important that we continue being patient and thoughtful in our approach.

"Change doesn't always happen overnight. It takes time. We must follow a well-thought strategy and plan.

"We met Steve with the players on Monday, and gave them the space and time this week to prepare for Sunday's very important game.

"Steve and his coaching staff have been professional in dealings with us. We will be taking the team to Steve's on Sunday.

Steve will be the first person to know if we make any changes in the future, but in the meantime we wish Steve the best of luck in his 1,000th match in charge and will be there with you [the fans] to support the team."

Newcastle's new owners are being linked to former Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre and Rangers' Steven Gerrard, as well as former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

Bruce is a Newcastle boyhood fan and was named Magpies head coach in 2019. He was resigned as Sheffield Wednesday's boss.

After Rafael Benitez, the former manager of the north east, made a positive impression on his arrival, it was not surprising that it received mixed reviews.

The club has lost four and drawn three games in this league campaign, and was knocked out on penalties by Burnley of the Carabao Cup.

Bruce will speak to the media Friday afternoon, before Spurs' weekend visit.
