Newcatle have asked Graeme Jones to take charge of Magpies games after they sacked Steve Bruce.

Newcastle United have asked Graeme Jones to take charge of the club for the next 2 matches in the Premier League.

The Magpies sacked former manager Steve Bruce after weekend defeat to Tottenham in the Premier League.

Jones will now be the caretaker manager for the Magpies as the search for a manager continues for the club.

Jones said: “I spoke to the owners on Wednesday morning and they have asked me to take the team on an interim basis for the next two games, so Crystal Palace and Chelsea at home.

“As I’ve said previously, I am fully focussed on preparing the team the best we can to be competitive in those two games.”

Newcastle’s new owners held talks with former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca on Wednesday but no further discussions have taken place since then.

As it stands, there is no offer on the table for Fonseca, who was linked with Tottenham earlier this summer prior to the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo.
