Former England boss Allardyce, who previously managed Newcastle from 2007 until 2008, has claimed he was under consideration to replace Benitez but has rejected the chance to return to St James' Park.

But the former England manager declined an opportunity to speak to the club.

"I must say that I have had more meetings with the chairman, president and general manager this week than I had in three years at Newcastle".

It remains to be seen whether Bruce will be able to go on Newcastle's pre-season trip to the Far East because of visa issues but if he can agree personal terms, the club will endeavour to ensure he is able to meet the players for the first time in China next week.

And that could prove his most effective tactic to keep Newcastle at bay. I was very flattered that I was being considered.

"It wasn't something I thought about for too long".

Kanye West Says He's Building Low-Income Housing Inspired By Star Wars

"I never got to talk to Mike [Ashley]".

With the Premier League season fast approaching, Newcastle really need to make a decision on their new boss.

Allardyce, 64, has not held a full-time coaching role since leaving Everton in May 2018.

The Corbridge-born former Manchester United defender's links to Wearside may not endear him to the Toon Army, although whoever replaces Benitez faces an intensely hard task whatever their background.

Chinese media have reported Benitez has signed a 21-month contract worth about US$21 million (S$28.4 million) and he has already started to justify his massive wage packet, after securing a 3-1 win over Henan Jianye in his first game in charge to remain 10th in the standings. Football does that - it believes that lie sometimes.
