Steve Bruce is reportedly eager to take advantage of the available transfer kitty at Newcastle United by recruiting a number of new players once he is confirmed as Magpies boss.
The manager will apparently begin with Yannick Bolasie and James McCarthy — two players he has often tried to sign in the past for previous clubs. During his time with Aston Villa, Bruce was keen for the club to land Bolasie on loan, and they ultimately managed to do so after he had been sacked.
James McCarthy has just 1 year left on his contract and Everton are trying to offload him this summer. Yannick Bolasie has 2 years remaining on his contract but has just a £10m release clause in his contract.
