Newcastle United face Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.
And Steve Bruce has been talking injuries, Andy Carroll, the return of Dwight Gayle, contracts, transfers and the January window.
Here’s EVERYTHING the Magpies head coach discussed at his Benton press call this morning.
1. On Martin Dubravka's new SIX-year deal
"Martin has a had a wonderful few months in that respect I am delighted. In the few months I've worked with him he is a very good goalkeeper. It is essential for any big club to have a good keeper, that is the No 1 position. We're delighted to have tied him down." Photo: Jan Kruger
