Newcastle United's new owners are happy to keep Steve Bruce in charge until they find their ideal managerial appointment.

Speculation has been mounting since the takeover that a change in the dug-out would occur before Tottenham visit St James' Park on Sunday, says The Sun.

However, the veteran is set to celebrate his 1000th match as a manager in charge of his hometown team despite him expecting to get the bullet.

That is according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who states the new board are working on bringing in a new man.

But they want to be '100 per cent sure' on his replacement before making a change.

And he added that 'talks will continue in the next hours and days' regarding a managerial appointment.

Newcastle, who are now the richest club in the world after being taken over by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, are yet to win a Premier League game so far this season under Bruce.
