📸 Sheffield Wednesday fan confronts Steve Bruce after Newcastle links

A Sheffield Wednesday fan has confronted Steve Bruce during their pre-season game away at Lincoln on Saturday.

Bruce has been heavily-tipped to become the new Newcastle boss, with local reports claiming that the former Sunderland man has agreed personal terms with the Magpies.

But while Wednesday and Newcastle negotiate a compensation fee for the 58-year-old, he has remained in charge for their opening match of the summer.

But it looks as if not all supporters are going to be sending Bruce on his way with their best wishes, with one fan entering the pitch at Sincil Bank and calling out the manager.

Newcastle meanwhile have flown to China for the start of their pre-season.
