Steve Bruce is trying to bring in another coach as he attempts to reverse Newcastle United’s slump in results.

The Magpies have suffered a serious slump in form with pressure mounting on the manager
Jones, who was born in Gateshead, has previously worked as Roberto Martinez’s assistant, most recently with the Belgium national side.
He was appointed Luton manager in 2019 but left the club last April with the team second from bottom in the Championship.
The 50-year-old then took up a coaching role at Bournemouth under Jason Tindall last summer but now looks set to return to his native North-East, should a deal be reached with the Championship club.
It is a sign that Bruce retains the support of Newcastle’s hierarchy and they will back him in his efforts to halt a slide towards relegation.
