Report – Newcastle In Shock Move For Available Spurs Star

The Daily Star are reporting in an exclusive that Steve Bruce is looking to bring Spurs left-back Danny Rose to Newcastle as his first signing.

So this is how we imagine that the Daily Star came to this report. The journalist asked himself in a hypothetical if Steve Bruce would want Danny Rose at Newcastle.

The conclusion the journalist came to was – well, of course. That is basically the substance of this story as there is no indication that this deal is even a remote possibility.

This is what Harry Pratt writes in his report:

New Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has already identified the left-back position at St James’ Park as one that needs addressing urgently – and would love a player of Rose’s calibre.

The England defender, 29, has stated he could be on his way from North London – and will consider all options ahead of next month’s transfer deadline.

So Newcastle need a left-back and Danny Rose has been widely reported to be leaving Tottenham this summer. There is the exclusive report from the Daily Star.

Danny Rose– Steve Bruce or the Champions League?

The report goes on to suggest that it would take some convincing for Mike Ashley to sanction a deal for the 29 year old England international. But that if Ashly would sanction the deal, it would go a long way in convincing the Toon Army that Ashley is right behind his manager.

This is what Pratt adds in the story:

Whether Bruce, whose appointment as Rafa Benitez’s successor has angered so many of the Toon Army, can cajole owner Mike Ashley to part with a similar amount for Rose is another matter.

But the Geordies are desperate to flex some financial muscle in the market to ease the discontent surrounding the club.

Landing Rose, capped 27 times by England, would be a statement of intent – and show that Ashley is at least backing his new boss.

There are other potential problems to overcome.

Rose enjoyed a successful campaign on loan with Newcastle’s bitter enemies Sunderland in 2011-12 – and remains something of a cult figure at the Stadium of Light.

Yes, I’m sure the fact that Danny Rose spent time on loan with Sunderland eight years ago would scupper this deal.

How about the fact that Danny Rose will have options galore with Champions League clubs able to offer him astronomical wages?

It is Sunday after all.

    Mr T,

    Thanks for the explanation on the previous page. Very enlightening.
    I have to admit, when I lived in the north east I was never really interested in nature.

    But, since coming to the US and having it foisted upon me – I’ve learned to love it.
    I kid you not, while I’ve been typing this a deer has just walked through our garden (yard).

    We have squirrels, chipmunks, owls, deers, rabbits at all times of the day – its great.
    Maybe I’m just getting old and sentimental (who knows)

    After this summer I now believe if it ( ever) happens the first we will know is a simple statement .
    As fun as it was with snippets and chopper watch ,it’s clear the media used it purely as click bait and generally had no idea as to was hoping on than we did .

    When AP got appointed in mid 2010,he finished 10th in his first half gig.
    The following full season,he finished 5th.
    You never know what new manager will do.May be Bruce has different ideas and style and can do better than Rafa or anyone else.
    I for one will support him as long as he last.

    Jib, Nazareth is a small city down here 100km away from where I reside.
    Usually we visit it once in a year.Warm weather,couple of beaches,
    nice foods, swimming pools etc etc…
    I’m surprised how you managed to know it if you are referring to it.
    And oh by the way,that fella is still doing roundabouts and guffs daily.
    You never know what will happen tomorrow.
    I will be relying on you.
    Couple of pints and all that…

    Lol .the slow drip feed continues
    Would say it’s KBA trying to rubbish the last bid as non serious etc but I’d start thinking my skin was going green
    The latest true Geordie kick off says it best .
    Only way to get ash out is to not go .end of .
    But he is saying not just arsenal..as it show him we just won’t hand over any more until he sells up .

    You just hope Bruce has a conscience and becomes more of a pain in the arse for Ashley than Rafa was .
    Otherwise he is perfect for charnley and Ashley as he gets the abuse and its deflected from the persons who truely deserve it .
    Will update all on my funeral wreath delivery for mr charnley later on after confirming a few things on the uk end .

    Surely we believe all these rumours to be true as St renewal is at an all time low And Joelinton will fail his medical with only 15 mins of the transfer window left.Forcing us to go for Andy Carroll on a freebie.
    We all know that’s how Ashley roles the dice

    I at least hope the fans will give Bruce half a chance to prove himself. Yes he’s been shite everywhere else, but Benitez was winning trophies everywhere else and we all know what happened.

    The West Ham game wasn’t too painful

    Starting go think the arsenal game might be the most significant in our history and it’s nothing go do with the match result .
    The club is at a crossroads and we need to choose ..hope or just happy to exist under Ashley as the club falls behind more clubs year on year

    OR, did Midhat Kidawi go for his six month dental check up back in February where he let slip to his Geordie dentist that his group might be interested in Newcastle which led to you and your dentist pal making up exact dates and timelines of events and knocking up HoT documents and having most of us hanging on your every word just like when you claimed Rafa was signing his new deal, because loads of people 3K miles away are privy to such information.

    Mike ashley hasnt got money, he said his cash is tied up in shares etc

    He did initially put 20mil a season of his own cash, now we’re self sufficient. We get nothing from him but he gets a lot back

    Seems like BZG are scammers , forget the takeover. Mikes quite settled here

    So, the Sheikh has to borrow money from a hedge fund.
    Why, can’t he just bring in a partner from one of his many associates in the UAE.
    Sounds like bollocks to me.

    May be I could ask to borrow 400M and I could by it.
    Time wasters ? Certainly seems so.

    BZG could easily have proven funds but have problems moving
    said funds from the ME , hence the need for a Western partner.
    I think Fortress are South African.

    With Ashley being quoted as saying he needed a manager in
    place before a sale could take occur it could be the departure
    of Rafa stalled the deal and hence the appointment of the first
    guy who would take the job.

    The frog’s not the problem with this blog, it’s the ever growing Group ofAshley apologists.
    They constantly try to drown out and ridicule any mention of meaningful protest, justify our pathetic transfer expenditure etc.

    As things stand they will have to spend that 90 million to get me back mate.
    Or most of it with an explanations as to what is happening with the rest.

    I think that’s exactly what Ashley is banking on bud to be honest.Release funds to get the Crowd back up and we fall back into the club showing Ambition.
    I know what ya saying cos its killing me staying away from the ground as it’s been a full season now and I’m missing it like crazy after nearly 3 decades of going up.If the 90 mill was spent every transfer window then we might have a chance to do something mate,But 90 million just papers over the cracks
