Update: Rodgers refuses to engage with Newcastle and wont make a switch

Brendan Rodgers is the top candidate to succeed Steve Bruce at Newcastle United. Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Wednesday. After the Saudi takeover, Newcastle is looking for a new manager.
Bruce is currently in front of the group at The Magpies. However, according to English media, Newcastle is soon sending him out of the avenue. It looked like Antonio Conte would be the new manager at St. James‘ Park. According to Di Marzio, this is not true: the Italian journalist reports that Rodgers is in pole position for the trainer position at Newcastle.
Rodgers is currently under contract with Leicester City. If Newcastle wants to unsoak the Englishman there, it will have to be deep in the pouch. Rodgers has a transfer clause of EUR 16 million in his contract at Leicester. Rarely do clubs pay such a high redemption fee for trainers.
Rodgers currently occupies thirteenth place in the Premier League with Leicester. Last year The Foxes Champions League football went missing out on one point. In the Europa League the start of Rodgers and co. was not good this season: after two duels Leicester will be the last in Group C with one point.
Update: It doesn’
t look like Brendan Rodgers will be the new Newcastle United manager. The Magpies would love to appoint him, but Rodgers has no need to engage with the club. Sky Sports reports Wednesday night, among others.
