PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Here is your 4am Newcastle United digest. Steve Bruce Newcastle United future latest as head coach vows to fight on Steve Bruce will be back in the dugout for Newcastle United’s home clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday night - despite the club’s poor form. Bruce and his players were not at the training ground today as the squad were handed a recovery day after the 3-1 defeat at Manchester United. However, they will be back in work to prepare for the Wolves game on Tuesday. The head coach vowed to fight on after the loss at Old Trafford and insisted he would be able to guide Newcastle away from danger. With 13 games to go Newcastle only have a three point cushion over Fulham in the basement battle. United acted on the post-festive slump by bringing in former Luton Town boss Graeme Jones as assistant head coach.

Mike Ashley - who would make the ultimate decision on Bruce - is out of the country and knows that he would have to fork out a seven figure sum to pay the former Sheffield Wednesday off. Given Ashley had to pay £4million in compensation to land the ex-Owls chief in 2019 he is reluctant to make changes, not least with the club’s finances dented by the lack of gate money. Ashley’s plan so far has been to stick with Bruce as long as Newcastle aren’t in the bottom three. Although that may change if Newcastle lost to Wolves and Fulham triumphed at Crystal Palace at the weekend. Supporters are calling for Bruce to go but he is unlikely to resign given he has 15 months left of his current deal and would stand to lose around £1.5million. Bruce revealed that his remit from Ashley was to keep Newcastle in the Premier League this season. And while the Magpies remain in with a shout of doing so, he will argue he is carrying out the job asked of him last summer. You can read the full story, here. TalkSPORT commentator believes it will be a 'miracle' if Newcastle avoid relegation Newcastle United are 'bang in trouble' and it will be a 'miracle' if they avoid relegation from the Premier League this term. That is the damning verdict of TalkSPORT and ITV commentator Sam Matterface, who insists it was 'pure and utter luck' the Magpies avoided relegation last season. "The main takeaway for me is that Newcastle are bang in trouble," Matterface told TalkSPORT's GameDay podcast. "They are going one way and Fulham are going the other way.

"I don't know if this is Graeme Jones' doing but this high pressing is all well and good but I don't know if you can start demanding that from a group of players at this stage of the season and expect them to go through 90 minutes successfully and do that. "To learn a new style of play, a new style of coaching. "They did quite well to get back into the game but I just didn't have any confidence that they were going to see it through. "I just have every anticipation that they are going to be relegated and I have felt it since the beginning of the season. "We did a podcast at the start of the season and I suggested that I thought Newcastle might go down. "Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser, goals, they'll be OK - ordinarily I would have probably gone with that prediction as well. "But my prediction was based on the data from last year. The expected goals data from last year was so bad that it belied reality that they were nowhere near the relegation zone. "It was pure and utter luck that they weren't relegated last season and that has continued into this season. "If they get away with it this year it will be a miracle."
