  • The 64-year-old confirmed the news on talkSPORT after Sportsmail's exclusive revealing

'Newcastle United offered Sam Allardyce a surprise return as manager last week, Sportsmail can reveal, but the former England boss has rejected the opportunity.

Sam Allardyce has confirmed that Mike Ashley's people did indeed contact his agent about the vacancy and talks followed.

"I politely said no and moved on".

Allardyce was appointed manager at St James' Park in 2007, but was sacked under a year later, over concerns about his playing style and signings.

"I never got to talk to Mike", added Allardyce, whose last managerial post in the Premier League was at Everton.

"It's not for me".

Djokovic Enters Ninth Wimbledon Semi-Final
The world number one secured his 70th match win at the tournament and will be playing in his 36th semi-final at the majors. Pella looked tired as a limp backhand gifted the Spaniard a decisive break at the start of the second set.

"If it was the first time around then maybe I would have jumped at it but not now". The next season they spent £100million [with his successor Marco Silva in charge] and finished eighth'. I appreciate the offer.

"I just thought it would be better for everybody if I made a quick decision because they are there in pre-season - I would have had to have been there in a day!"

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.

The former Magpies manager claimed Sheffield Wednesday fans should be anxious about their team losing their manager as he thinks Bruce would jump at the chance to succeed Benitez if his current club doesn't stand in his way. "I think it would be one of his dreams to manage his hometown club".

On his previous stint on Tyneside, Allardyce explained: "It wasn't pleasant in the end but it was in the middle of the takeover. The transfer market is the hardest part of the job at the moment and getting the right players to go to Newcastle, listening to what Rafa said before, has been a tough job".
