Steve Bruce is a vastly experienced manager who was last in charge of Newcastle.
Bruce has experienced the highs and lows as life as manager, leading Birmingham (twice) and Hull (twice) up to the Promised Land that is the Premier League, but also suffering the pain of relegation with both clubs.
Other achievements include an FA Cup Final appearance with Hull in 2013/14 - which won the club qualification into the Europa League - while he also guided Wigan to an impressive 11th spot in the Premier League.
As well as being a manager Bruce can also call himself as an author, having written three novels - Sweeper! Defender! and Striker!.
