Mike Ashley could now sanction late loan deal, with Steve Bruce set to avoid the sack – Report

According to The Chronicle, Mike Ashley will continue to back Steve Bruce – despite calls for the Newcastle boss to be sacked over the weekend.

Fans chanted “we want Brucie out” during Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Southampton, with the 60-year-old also receiving a huge boo when he touched the ball on the sidelines.

However, Lee Ryder reports that Ashley has no intention of getting rid of his man – and could instead show his support in the form of a late loan signing.

The Chronicle claim that the club are scouring the loan market with less than 48 hours of the transfer window remaining, with a decision yet to be made on whether or not Bruce will include FOUR goalkeepers in his 25-man squad.

So far we’ve done the bare minimum in bringing Joe Willock back to the club, with the ex-Arsenal man being the only addition.

The squad is still in desperate need of new arrivals, however, with us crying out for an athletic centre-back, a midfield enforcer and striker able to step in when Callum Wilson isn’t fit.

Our no.9 was forced off over the weekend with a thigh injury, highlighting the fragile nature of our forward options.

As for who could arrive before tomorrow’s 11pm deadline, Leicester’s Hamza Choudhury is said to be keen on a move to Tyneside, while Chelsea duo Ethan Ampadu and Malang Sarr have also been named as potential options.

    Ashley has spent for the yes man Bruce, and he has been lucky to keep us up,
    Bad free transfers in wages Hendrick and Fraser, it’s just Bruce couldn’t win if he had Messie, Naymar and Ronaldo in the forward line cause he doesn’t know what formation to play, he would probably play them as a back three!
