Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce reveals transfer mandate ahead of next season

​Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce has hinted that he could potentially sign a few more players this summer according to the Shields Gazette.

The Magpies are yet to confirm the signing of Jeff Hendrick who will be joining the side on a free transfer after ending his association with Burnley.

Newcastle have already acquired the signature of former Motherwell goalkeeper Mark Gillespie on a three -year deal until the summer of 2023.

“I can assure all the supporters there’ll be at least two or three (more signings),” said Bruce. “As I’ve said many, many times.

"I didn’t spend anything in January when we had the chance to, because I didn’t think they were the right quality.

"It could only happen to me, mind. I kept my money for the summer – but unfortunately, there’s a pandemic! We’ve been affected in that respect.

"I think the key to it is to be a little bit shrewd, and, of course, make sure you bring in that little bit of quality that makes the difference.

"It’s easy to go and get four or five players, but the thing is we’ve got to box a bit clever and get that bit of quality that keeps taking us forward.”
