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.
