Bruce’s side yesterday drew 2-2 with West Ham United at St James’s Park.

And Newcastle’s head coach was asked about the proposed takeover, which has been with the Premier League for approval since April, and his own future after the behind-closed-doors Premier League game, which left his team 12th in the table ahead of Wednesday night’s game against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

However, Bruce – who has seen Rafa Benitez and Mauricio Pochettino linked with his job – shut down the line of questioning.

"Unfortunately, I seem to be answering in every interview – and you again have brought it up,” said Bruce. “To be perfectly honest, I'm bored and fed up with it, so can we move on? I'm fed up of answering the question, to be brutally honest."
