Premier League club Newcastle United have appointed Steve Bruce as their new manager ahead of the new season scheduled to start in the next three weeks.
Steve Bruce has bagged the Newcastle United job shortly after he resigned from his post as the manager of English Championship club Sheffield Wednesday.
His new appointment was confirmed by Newcastle United earlier on Wednesday.
The former Manchester United defender has put pen to paper on a three-year contract until the end of the 2021/22 season.
Newcastle United had been without a manager since former Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez left the club at the end of last month.
Benitez left his job as the Newcastle United manager at the end of his contract with the Magpies.
He has since joined Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit Dalian Yifang as their manager.
The Spaniard has been offered a contract worth £12m on a yearly basis in his new job.
Rafael Benitez was briefly the Chelsea manager during the second half of the 2011/12 season.
He helped Chelsea to the Europa League title at the end of that season.
Newcastle United was his third club in the Premier League after the duo of Chelsea and reigning European champions Liverpool.
