Sheffield Wednesday are seeking more compensation from Newcastle over the appointment of Steve Bruce, according to Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The club are currently in talks with lawyers over extra money, after rejecting the £4million offer from in the previous week.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Nixon claimed that Wednesday have received £4million, but are still seeking more from Mike Ashley.

Newcastle’s compensation was not only for Bruce but also for the services of his assistants Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence.

Despite no compensation being agreed, the 58-year-old has taken charge of Newcastle training and oversaw pre-season victory over West Ham in the on Saturday.

OPINION

Even though Bruce has been officially confirmed as Newcastle manager, the end doesn’t seem any closer for both and Sheffield Wednesday. With £4million reportedly already in their pocket, the club seems determined to get more, maybe for their two coaches in Agnew and Clemence. With lawyers now reportedly involved, things don’t look like getting any brighter and Newcastle could be forced to pay even more to finally stop any complaints and start looking towards the once again. With two weeks to go until the start of the top flight once again, Ashley and Bruce will surely have been hoping that this will have ended and that they can officially start strengthening their squad, and as it stands neither things have happened. The Mirror reported that Wednesday would be happy to call it quits should Newcastle fund the loan moves of both Rolando Aarons and Achraf Lazaar, an offer that was rejected, something the club may reconsider should lawyers start to demand a higher fee.
