“Newcastle are doing very well at the moment,” Carroll told Sky Bet. “Whatever Eddie Howe is saying in the dressing room is working.

"I speak with a lot of the team. There’s lots of togetherness in the team. In the international breaks, they go on training camps together. They’ve got a bond and all believe – and trust in each other.

"The fans help a lot. It sounds so cliched to describe them as the 12th man, but their support helps a lot. Their fanbase is massive. When they get going, it’s tough to knock them.”

The former England international left the club two years later. Speaking at the time, Bruce said: "He's out of contract.

"I had a conversation with Andy. I think he wants to go and play. I wish the lad all the best. I hope it goes for the rest of his career. He's certainly been a big help to me in the last couple of years, that's for sure.”
