Steve Bruce is ‘confident’ he’ll have a couple of new signings before the month is out, remaining ‘hopeful’ we’ll re-sign Joe Willock despite the never-ending wait for a final decision.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Bruce accepted – yet again – that there may come a time where we have to move on from the Arsenal midfielder.
Elsewhere, the NUFC boss hit back at those claiming he’s making no effort to bring new players in, insisting that he’s ‘frustrated’ by our lack of transfer business so far this summer and not happy to see the club standing still.
Here’s what he’s had to say, as shared by Sky’s North-East correspondent Keith Downie:
“There will come a time when we have to move on. But I’m still hopeful.”
“There’s a misconception that I’m not trying to sign players.
“I wouldn’t be doing my job properly if I wasn’t trying to improve us.
“I’m not just happy standing still. It’s frustrating.”
There were some claims that Joe Willock was on his way to Newcastle this afternoon, however those rumours have been denied by talkSPORT, Lee Ryder and a host of other local reporters.
The wait goes on…
