Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is under tremendous pressure because of his side’s abysmal run of form right now and he could be out of a job at the end of this season.
According to Daily Mail, the Magpies are looking at Sean Dyche as a potential replacement.
Dyche has done well at Burnley over the past few seasons and it will be interesting to see if the Magpies decide to appoint him as their next manager.

The 49-year-old’s appointment might not go down too well with the fans who are unhappy with their side’s playing style under Bruce. Dyche employs a similar defensive style of football.
Newcastle are currently two points above the relegation zone and the fans will be desperately hoping that their side can beat the drop to the Championship.
Relegation this season could have a devastating effect on the club financially. Furthermore, they won’t be able to attract quality players or a quality manager either.
Mike Ashley has already been criticised heavily for his lack of ambition and investment. Going down to the Championship could force the under-fire Newcastle owner to further tighten his purse-strings.
It will be interesting to see how the next few weeks unfold for Newcastle. The likes of Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin are expected to return from their injuries soon and Bruce will be hoping that his key players can steer his side to safety.
