Steve Bruce is desperate to do summer signings, but Mike Ashley doesn’t want to spend big
They missed Mario Lemina who left Southampton for Nice and are awaiting a definitive response from Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock on whether he wants to return.
Steve Bruce is in desperate need of new additions ahead of the new season, but the club’s potential sale means owner Mike Ashley is reluctant to invest heavily.
Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe is also wanted on loan but the Old Trafford club are said to be asking for loan fees of Â£ 5million.
It is understood that the lack of transfer progress is also frustrating for players who are well aware that they need to strengthen themselves to avoid another relegation flirtation.
Bruce hopes they can have more success with their candidacy for the French international U21 Kamara.
Otherwise, they will be forced to consider other options again.
