Bruce last week succeeded Rafa Benitez at Newcastle United after meeting Mike Ashley.

The 58-year-old had talks with owner Ashley before signing a three-year deal. They met again on Wednesday at the club’s training ground before new signing Joelinton was unveiled.

Asked about Ashley’s mood, head coach Bruce said: “He was very positive. He enjoyed watching training and the work we did. He was very positive about the start of the season.”
