Steve Bruce, Tim Sherwood and Fabricio Coloccini feature in Next Newcastle Manager Market

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 30 December 2014, 10:31

Alan Pardew is now on the brink of becoming the new Crystal Palace manager, meaning attention on Tyneside has instantly turned to potential successors in the Next Newcastle Manager Market. Perhaps surprisingly, Magpies skipper Fabricio Coloccini has emerged as one of the main contenders for the post, although Steve Bruce, Tim Sherwood and Ally McCoist are also right in the mix at this early stage. Meanwhile the Toon have confirmed that John Carver and Steve Stone have been placed in caretaker charge for the club's New Year's Day clash with Burnley.

The imminent vacancy will no doubt attract a host of managers, both in and out of work. However, if reports are to be believed then Coloccini could be on the verge of stepping up to the plate and landing the job at St James' Park. The popular long-serving Argentinian has been at the club since 2008 after joining from Deportivo La Coruna for lb10.3m, while he is in contract up until 2016. However, it is not known whether Coloccini has the correct coaching qualifications, while his odds appear to already be drifting with some bookmakers.

Steve Bruce

Meanwhile Hull manager Steve Bruce is also believed to be keen on a switch to Newcastle. The 53-year-old would have been an attractive proposition in the summer, having led the Tigers to the FA Cup Final along with Premier League safety, however he has come under considering pressure this term following a wretched run of form (one win in 12).

As is often the case these days Sherwood is also in the frame for the hot-seat, and the former Spurs gaffer will no doubt be desperate to land the job, having been out of work since leaving White Hart Lane in the summer. Pulis also features, but is now widely expected to take the West Brom job, while Ally McCoist, Peter Beardsley and Steve McClaren are worth keeping an eye on.
