Jones, recruited by Steve Bruce as his assistant in January, was drafted on to Gareth Southgate’s England coaching team ahead of Euro 2020.
And the 51-year-old was by Southgate’s side all the way to Sunday’s final at Wembley, which Italy won on penalties.
Bruce, speaking from Newcastle's training camp in York, said: “I’ve spoken to him regularly over the past two or three weeks in particular. I’m delighted for him to be given the opportunity. Of course, us going so close … when you get that far where you lose at Wembley in whatever final, it’s not nice. He’ll need a break, and rightly so. He’ll join us in two or three weeks’ time, and refresh himself and dust himself down. He’s played a big part (in England’s success).”
Newcastle open their pre-season campaign with fixtures against York City and Harrogate Town on Sunday.
