The Press Association is reporting that Sheffield Wednesday have reported Newcastle United to the Premier League regarding its conduct in taking Steve Bruce from South Yorkshire to Tyneside. A statement from Wednesday reads:

“Following Newcastle United’s announcement on 17 July 2019 of its appointment of former Sheffield Wednesday staff Steve Bruce, Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence, the club confirms that it has today reported Newcastle United’s conduct to the Premier League. As the Premier League will now initiate and carry out investigations into the club’s allegations, the club will not be commenting further on this matter whilst such investigations are ongoing”. 

This follows the rather bizarre claims that Wednesday wished to settle their complaint against United for the Bruce shenanigans by allowing them to have Aarons and Lazaar all season and to cover their wages. You can imagine the response to that from Mike Ashley who wouldn’t give away the steam off his piss.

Its widely reported United does not believe Wednesday has a case against them.

They have believed that before as the court case with Kevin Keegan and Jonas Guitteraz demonstrated. They lost both.
