Steve Bruce "incredibly proud" to be Newcastle United after leaving Sheffield Wednesday

Steve Bruce

"I'm delighted and incredibly proud to be appointed as head coach of Newcastle United".

The game was the first played since Steve Bruce was appointed as Newcastle boss, but the former Sunderland manager won't take charge until the Magpies next fixture in the tournament.

In response to a question about the player's whereabouts, the club wrote a post on its official Twitter account saying: "Joe is not there, he is in concrete negotiations with a Premier League club".

Bruce and his back room staff will join up with his new team in China as they prepare for their Premier League Asia Trophy clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday.

Bruce resigned as Sheffield Wednesday manager earlier this week, pending his expected move to boyhood club Newcastle.

The 58-year-old was revealed as the new Toon boss on Wednesday after a lengthy search to find a successor for Rafa Benitez, who left the club at the end of June.

Newcastle had been linked with a variety of names in recent weeks, including Jose Mourinho, Steven Gerrard and Garry Monk, while Sam Allardyce says he rejected the opportunity to return to Tyneside.

The defender told Sky Sports: "I've always said it, we've just got to stick together as one, that's the best thing we can do".

"We will roll our sleeves up and we'll be giving it everything from the off to ensure supporters have a successful team that they can be proud of".

"He is in concrete negotiations with a Premier League club".
