Newcastle United transfer news: English club want Toon ace, Bruce unsure on big money chase

Newcastle United took a huge step towards Premier League survival with a dramatic 3-2 win over West Ham on Saturday afternoon.

The Magpies raced into a two-goal lead against the Hammers, only to be pegged back before loanee Joe Willock scored a towering header late on the seal all three points.

The results moves the Toon Army eight points clear of the bottom three with six games to go, and their cause was helped further when Fulham could only muster a draw against Arsenal on Sunday.

Speaking after Saturday’s clash, former Newcastle boss Graeme Souness admitted that he believed their win against West Ham will be enough to ensure their Premier League survival this season.

He said: “Enormous, and I think that will be enough for them.

"For West Brom, who have a bit of momentum, they’ll look on this result as a real kick in the teeth, and on Fulham also. I think they’ll be okay now.

"They did it in a fashion which won’t make Steve Bruce too happy. They were in the driving seat and they completely lost the plot with the other team down to 10 men, but they got there.

"They got a couple of large slices of luck. They will look back on the season and think that in the other games the luck has not been with them. Today they’ve got it and they’ll take it.

"I think that will be enough for them.”
