Newcastle United next manager: Sam Allardyce confirms he turned down Magpies approach

Sam Allardyce

Steve Bruce has reportedly emerged as the favourite, but another former Sunderland boss in Allardyce claims to have been contacted about the role, much to his own surprise.

Sam Allardyce has said he turned down the chance to take the vacant manager's job at Newcastle.

Sources at St James' Park have indicated to Telegraph Sport that, barring any last-minute hitches, Bruce will be announced as Rafa Benitez's replacement before the weekend.

The former defender is keen on managing in the Premier League and is enthused about managing the club he has supported all his life.

However, Allardyce told TalkSport: "I was very flattered that I was considered but it's that thing ..."

"It never got to the type of talks people are suggesting but it wasn't for me". I politely said no and moved on.

It is reported in The Star that the Newcastle born manager (58), will be offered a Premier League salary along with a £60m war-chest in order to try and build a squad capable of being competitive in The Premier League next season.

"I think he should, I think it's been one of your dreams to manager his hometown club". "We're in pre-season now and they're back in training".

The report says that the Wednesday contract he signed in February contains a hefty compensation clause and the club are ready to play hardball over letting Bruce leave.

Bruce, who spent two years at their fierce rivals Sunderland between 2009-11, is a boyhood Newcastle fan and feels he can not resist the lure of the challenge on Tyneside.

Will Bruce return to England's top flight?
