Steve Bruce’s Sheffield Wednesday future could be resolved imminently.
Bruce is said to have resigned from his position as the Sheffield Wednesday manager on Monday morning, along with his assistants, Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence.
The 58-year-old is being pursued by his boyhood club, Newcastle United.
And according to the Sun, the Magpies owner, Mike Ashley, has since offered £4 million up front to Wednesday in an attempt to get his man.
The newspaper claims the Owls are likely to accept Ashley’s terms, but adds that both Agnew and Clemence have left without their transfer fees being agreed, for now.
Although, both are expected to follow Bruce to Tyneside nonetheless.
If true, the news should see a weight lifted from the shoulders of Sheffield Wednesday and allow the Championship side to press on with securing Bruce’s successor.
The former Brighton and Hove Albion manager, Chris Hughton, is the current odds-on bookies favourite for the Hillsborough vacancy.
Wednesday fans, who should the Owls target with their apparent Bruce windfall?
