Brighton fans should be worried by the latest word on Newcastle’s managerial search, as Conte ‘rules himself out’


A fresh update on the potential change on the bench incoming at Newcastle United has been forthcoming on Saturday evening.

All change at St. James’

The news which shook the foundation of English football to its very core was of course forthcoming this past Thursday.

This came in the form of Mike Ashley’s tumultuous 14-year stint at the forefront of Newcastle United being brought to a definitive close.

On the back of a negotiation period spanning 18 months, the one final stumbling block – in the form of Saudi Arabia’s ban on all content stemming from broadcaster beIN Sports – was finally overcome, opening the door for a Saudi consortium led by Yasir Al-Rumayyan to kickstart a new era on Tyneside.

Newcastle, in turn, made word of the change in ownership at the club official on October 7th, in a deal worth a rumoured £300 million.

Potter incoming?

The momentous changing of hands at St. James’ Park has since resulted in understandable jubilation across Newcastle’s loyal fanbase, with the Magpies faithful having long been crying out for an owner fit to reestablish a club of such unquestionable magnitude amongst the giants of Premier League football.

For one current member of the setup on Tyneside, though, news of the club’s takeover has actually come as a blow.

The man in question? Steve Bruce.

The 48 hours since the Saudi Investment Fund took up the reins at Newcastle have seen a whole host of tacticians tipped to take their place on the club’s bench ahead of next season, amid the widespread assumption that Bruce’s days are now numbered.

And, as outlined above, on Saturday evening, a fresh insight into the situation has been forthcoming.

The info comes courtesy of the Daily Mail, citing SunSport, who suggest that Brighton manager Graham Potter is ‘on the new owners’ wanted list after transforming the Seagulls’ fortunes’.

This comes with another of those to have been named as a potential target for the Magpies – Antonio Conte – having ‘ruled himself out of a move to Tyneside’.
