Steve Bruce asks Mike Ashley to sign these 4 players with his £30m transfer budget – Report

According to the Daily Mail, Steve Bruce has asked the club to make moves for FOUR British-based players this summer.

They report that he’s pushing the Newcastle United hierarchy to make a £12m move for Everton midfielder Tom Davies, while Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson, former Burnley free agent Jeff Hendrick and highly-rated Wigan left-back Antonee Robinson are also key targets he’s put to the club.

The Mail state that Bruce is keen to add a British core to his squad this summer and is a ‘big admirer’ of 22-year-old talent Tom Davies.

With the signing of a ‘box-to-box’ midfielder said to be one of his top priorities this summer and him keen to add British talent to his team, a move for Davies could fit the bill perfectly.

The England U21 international has been a regular part of Everton’s squad since bursting into the scene in 2015, and has played 121 times for the Toffees, scoring six goals.

As for the others, Callum Wilson is expected to cost at least £20m this summer, while USA international Antonee Robinson is believed to have a release clause in his contract of just £1.9m. Sheffield United looked to have won the race for the Wigan left-back last week, however it’s since been reported that he’s considering other Premier League offers.

With all of the above in mind and Jeff Hendrick’s arrival on a free appearing to be imminent, is this how Bruce is *hoping* to spent his £30m budget plus player sales this summer?

Let’s hope we can get moving in the market and cash in on some fringe men to give Bruce’s limited transfer kitty a much needed budget.

Whether Ashley is eager to sell or not, the signing of a goalscorer and left-back is absolutely essential heading into the new season.

  1. Hendrick is irish, from Dublin in ireland and is in no way british!

  2. erm …. yeah …good luck brucie on getting those ! id be suprised if we got the freebie hendrick ! there is no chance we will get antonee robinson he was supposed to be going to ac milan at one point ! so turning up at toon 0% then callum willson 0% move on as for tom davies yes he has resale value ,young ,talented but will cost more than the 3/4 million it would cost for a french equivelent so no chance on him either ! im expecting hendrick for free then the usual no one else as they tried real hard but due to covid,others being interested and probably dark supernatural powers we just couldnt get them over that bllody line we keep mentioning thats some line is that ! its effected every transfer window mike ashley has overseen ! it must be the bane of his life !


  3. If, and it a big if, we do get a proven goal scorer and for the life of me I cannot see what the attraction is of coming to the club owned by the fat man, we need to get shot of that 40 million pound failure with just 2 goals in the league, God knows what he is being paid, but he is a liability!
