Bruce met Amanda Staveley, part of the investment group which has bought the club in a £300million deal, on Monday.

Speaking last week, Staveley said: “At the moment what we can say is that we’re very aware we’re sitting in the relegation zone, and we’re going to do everything we can to make sure the football club gets out of that position. We’ll make the decisions that need to be made.”

The club is 19th in the Premier League table with three points from seven games.
