Newcastle Likely To Sign English International This Summer

The Northern Echo are reporting today that Jose Mourinho and Tottenham will be willing to sell Danny Rose to Newcastle for a realistic transfer fee in the summer.

Rose is 29 and will have only one year left on his contract in the summer, so if Newcastle could pick him up for a decent fee, he would be an excellent addition to the squad.

Steve Bruce is a long-time admirer of the player, and indications are that the manager will go after the 29 times capped England International this summer.

Danny was keen to come to Newcastle in January on loan, and while he was still getting match fit when the coronavirus pandemic suspended play in the Premier League, this lad is a class player.

He was born in Doncaster and joined Tottenham from Leeds United way back in 2007.

He would be close to his roots if he moved permanently to Newcastle, and from what we can see, he loves playing for the club.

And that’s what we want – players who want to be at Newcastle.

If Danny joins the club, he will give competition to Paul Dummett, who has been out injured but should be ready to go – assuming we can start next season on time.

The European Championships have been put back one year, so Rose will want to play regularly next season, and it would appear a permanent move to Newcastle could suit both parties.

If Rose is signed, it does put a question mark on whether Jetro Willems will be coming to the club after he recovers from his awful ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) injury.

The Dutch International is another player who seems desperate to join Newcastle.

Newcastle have done a lot of scouting this season and will be ready to get their men once the coronavirus pandemic is over.

We hope they will be ready to get their men once the coronavirus pandemic is over.


The Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday announced a three-week lockdown for the UK in attempts to stop the disease from spreading.

    Think him and Williams if we can get both would be good. Williams brilliant for wing back and Rose and Dummett for a back 4

    Mr Tuff,

    Think he will try, but dont think he can take the club down with him over this one, but anything else think he would give it a go.

    Only hope now is someone willing to spend big while this is all going on, he might just be happy for the sale and cash

    I agree with hibbit – this is definitely a Gerald Ratner moment – in football parlance Ashley has just scored a massive own goal. However as Tuff says I just hope this doesn’t reflect on nufc as well and he takes us down with him!

    Unfortunately because of SD prices, there will always be customers buying from his shops! I presume the online business is still allowed; or is that shutdown as well?

    Just watched a clip on Sky – report about supermarkets – think the company was Waitrose – very orderly queue – distance between shoppers more than 2 metres. Security guard outside obviously operating a one in one out system. Thought that the set up would have been better if the security guard had had one of those infra red/gun type thermometers.

    This isn’t going to calm I don’t think
    He was roundly criticised by a TORY minister
    a respected sports tv figure and Caulkin a very
    well respected journo plus Piers Morgan
    I think he’s blown it big style it’s coming at him from all sides

    The boss of Wetherspoons is also getting pelters for saying his staff should find alternative work in a supermarket. Except he doesn’t. If you listen, he says you can stay at home and ride it out on the furlough payments or, if you prefer to find work in a supermarket, your job will be here for you when we reopen if you want it.

    Seems sensible and reasonable to me.

    Still reading all the comments but not posting much.
    Retired from the NHS last year ( logistics and warehouse side) and have just been asked if I will go back to help out as they are now going to 7 day working week to try and help get people out of hospital to home. (We provided the equipment like beds etc to do that)
    Bit worried about it but hey ho I couldn’t say no so it looks like I might be back on the frontline again soon.
    Stay safe and isolated and hopefully well soon be thru the other side of this

    Rob I think it’s likely to be to get as many as possible out of hospital as they can safely to free up hospital beds. It’s always been a bit of an issue to keep the hospital’s flowing particularly the new emergency one in cramlington. Don’t know how quick they’ll get me back in at the minute but it sounds like it will be soon

    My office is split over 3 floors in a block near the Centre for Life. I work on the 6th floor. I suspected that I might have picked up this virus from a colleague who returned ill from a skiing trip in France and came into the office last Monday and Tuesday, before we were all sent home.

    It turns out that there are three other people (out of about twelve total) who have come down sick with the same Covid 19 symptoms within 48 hours of each other, all of whom work on the 6th floor.

    Don’t be selfish like my colleague, if you show any symptoms at all, stay home for 7 days. If you don’t need to be out, then don’t go out.

    Unacceptable that Wetherspoons has refused to pay its 40,000 employees until it receives its Govt loan – potentially in late April – after first refusing to lock down altogether. If bosses disregard employees’ wellbeing then Govt should take tougher action to force compliance.

    Tim Martin, Mr Wetherspoon, was the very same man who a few days ago was arguing that pubs shouldn’t be subjected to stringent measures as pubs had not, as far as he knew, been responsible for any contagion.

    Given his association with this current government, he’s changed his tune a bit – aka he’s been reminded of his responsibilities.

    To his credit and judging by his Desert Island Discs selection, his taste in music was surprisingly pleasant – for me anyway.
