The last 24 hours have provided new insight into the search for Newcastle management and in particular the possible appointment of Erik ten Hag.
The news that the Magpies faithful had been waiting for several weeks, of course, finally arrived in the middle of last week.
This came in the form of the departure of former boss Steve Bruce.
In the wake of the big money takeover at St. James’ Park, it had long been seen more as a case of when, rather than whether Bruce would be sent packing, before a potentially prosperous new era on Tyneside.
In turn, following the club’s defeat to Tottenham last weekend, the final decision was made that the Englishman no longer represented the right man to lead Newcastle’s lead.
Therefore, it was announced that Bruce’s two-year stint in North East England had officially ended on Wednesday afternoon:
#NUFC can confirm that Steve Bruce has left his position as head coach by mutual consent.
The club would like to record its appreciation to Steve for his contribution and wishes him the best for the future.

Meanwhile, news of Bruce’s departure has led to rampant speculation surrounding who will be cast as the man to replace the 60-year-old in the magpies’ dugout.
A lot of names have been signed up for the role lately, with former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca currently viewed as the favorite.
However, as described above, over the past 24 hours, an insight into the possibility of an alternate target has been provided, in the form of Erik ten Hag, who takes the reins at St. James’.
The strategist in question? Erik ten Hag.
The respected Dutchman ten Hag is, of course, in charge of Ajax of the Eredivisie in his home country, the club with which the 51-year-old has earned a reputation as one of the most talented tactical minds in European football. .
In turn, it should come as no surprise to learn that ten Hag is one of the names under consideration by Newcastle’s top brass.
Speaking to the media after leading his team to a notable 5-0 defeat over arch rival PSV Eindhoven on Sunday, just days after overseeing a 4-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund in the League Champions, the former FC Twente star was drawn in. about your future.
Ten Hag, however, was eager to reiterate his commitment to the project at Ajax, explaining:
When I extended my contract with Ajax, I said: ‘I think we have a team that we can develop.
‘We want to upset the best European teams. We’re on our way, let me put it this way. ‘

According to the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder, even if Newcastle’s new owners succeeded in convincing ten Hag of the merits of moving to North East England, Geordie’s team would still have to fork out a hefty compensation package for their counterparts at the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
This comes with the Dutchman still having two years to fulfill his contract with Ajax.
