The scale of the task facing new head coach Steve Bruce was brutally laid bare as Newcastle United were thrashed 4-0 by Premier League rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in China on Wednesday.

The game was the first played since Steve Bruce was appointed as Newcastle boss, but the former Sunderland manager won't take charge until the Magpies next fixture in the tournament.

The report outlines that Irish global James McCarthy is a player Bruce is looking to bring to the club having previously tried to sign the Everton man during his time at Aston Villa.

Shearer fears there may be some testing times ahead for a fellow Geordie, with the legendary Newcastle striker having tried to get that message across to a man taking on his "toughest" role.

As I said the easy thing would to have been to say no but I just hope that people show the respect which you obviously only gain by getting a results and doing the job, but hopefully that will go hand in hand.

Academy coaches Ben Dawson and Neil Redfearn have taken charge of training since the players returned from their summer breaks and while Lascelles has been impressed by their work, he is happy Bruce is now in post.

"I'm like every other Geordie, I've lived the dream", said Steve Bruce, who was born near Newcastle.

Liverpool's Andy Robertson has defended Steve Bruce, following criticism of his appointment as Newcastle manager. He might not even have been their second, third or fourth pick.

Steve Bruce is due to sit down with Sean Longstaff in the coming days and tell him he is a key part of his plans for next season, Sky Sports News understands, amid continued interest from Manchester United.

"It looks more like he could have been the last man standing - and Newcastle just knew he would probably take the job because he has always wanted it". "He knows how fed-up the fan-base is".

Newcastle and Bruce will need to act quick, with the Magpies now the only side in the Premier League that haven't added a single signing to their squad ahead of the new season.

With nine weeks of the transfer window gone and only three remaining, no guesses for where Newcastle are most short: '...of course we're aware we've lost Rondon and Jose (Ayoze Perez).
