The Telegraph write how Bruce held training ground talks on Monday with Newcastle chiefs including managing director Lee Charnley.

And it emerged how the club will not axe Bruce for the crucial run-in despite the manager thinking ‘long and hard’ about his position.

Owner Ashley would be forced to pay Bruce a £4million compensation package to sack him now.

The revelations come after an overwhelming number of Newcastle fans voted against Bruce in a club poll.

Created by the local Chronicle Live, 14,000 fans filled out a survey with a whopping 95 per cent believing there should be a change in the dugout.

And a staggering 92 per cent of fans believe the club WILL get relegated if Bruce stays in the charge for the duration of the season.
