Allardyce confirms he turned down Newcastle approach

The Magpies are looking for a replacement for Rafa Benitez but Allardyce was not keen on a return to the North East

Sam Allardyce claims he rejected the chance to speak to Newcastle United about returning to the club as Rafael Benitez’s replacement.

Newcastle are searching for a new manager after Benitez left for China following the expiry of his contract at the end of June.

Steve Bruce has reportedly emerged as the favourite, but another former Sunderland boss in Allardyce claims to have been contacted about the role, much to his own surprise.
