Whelan,'Bruce free talk to Sunderland.'

Whelan,'Bruce free talk to Sunderland.'

Bruce has been strongly linked with the vacancy and although he has been given permission to speak to them, Mr Whelan informed BBC sport that,'there had been no further developments'.

Whilst some media outlets are reporting that Sunderland are distancing themselves from appointing Bruce, Ian Dennis BBC Radio 5 Live's senior sports reporter is reported as saying he believes that the deal will go ahead in the near future, with the end of the week being mentioned as an 'increasing possibility.'

If Bruce does go, then Mr Whelan will move quickly to replace the popular Geordie with ex Latics favourite Roberto Martinez, now manager at Swansea City the fans favourite.

Swansea insist however that they have had no communication from Wigan Athletic.

What an odd choice by Bruce... It would be far better for his reputation to continue his work at Wigan.

I hope he stays at wigan. Losing your manager is often much worse than losing your best players (as we found out!) and you often don't get anything like the compensation. To you, bruce must be worth more than valencia, yet who is going to command the bigger fee?

i agree with mmjnr bruce can go to hell he does it at every club he goes to as soon as things start to settle down he goes but if we get martinez i will be thrilled bruce has gone he is a much better, younger manager and to you pompeycarpet i consider valencia as better and more important than bruce as they say its all about what happens on the pitch try sticking steve bruce on the right wing and see what happens ;)

I think that it would be better for his career if he stayed, but who can blame him for going to a club that might not be selling the best players every time the transfer window opens?

I wouldn't be so sure about getting Bob Martinez here - and let's face it, if he did, he'd be doing exactly the same to Swansea as Bruce would be doing to us - so let's not get all up the arse about it. I'm not so sure Bruce will go anyway.
