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.

    Even though he hasn’t done much, if Willems is done in untill Christmas I would take Rose depending on the fee, they apparently wanted 20 million for him in January.. I wouldn’t want to spend more than 10 million on him.

    This ‘thick twat’ who you are/ were pro Ashley has noticed your sudden change in allegiance.

    lesh, I’m not saying I don’t have significant issues with Mr Martin, just that people are barking up the wrong tree criticising that particular statement.

    Simon I was with Northumbria and on bank as well but it looks as though that has been classed as inactive so they’re trying to get me up and running again. Probably take a couple of days but given the crisis in sure there will be a way round it

    Some people! A nearby neighbour of ours, an Italian guy has set up an online group to pull together through this crisis and he’s been getting some bits and pieces from the supermarket for another neighbour who’s poorly.
    Sounds admirable until I found out he’s just returned from skiing in Northern Italy and has been in close contact with the guy!
    As I say, some people just don’t get it!

    Agreed that there’s nothing wrong in that particular statement had it been issued as a spontaneous gesture of good will. It looks as though he’s had to row back from his previous position but ne’er mind, he’s clarified the message for his employees.

    Now it’s a matter of when they get paid if they’re off work. But, that’ll come out in the wash – sooner rather than later I’d guess.

    That Martin guy was totally against shutting the pubs for obvious reasons, ie being the owner of Witherspoons!
    I would think pubs were the worst places to frequent at present time and he should’ve recognised that earlier! An Ashley moment I think!

    The likes of your neighbour’s probably not thick but although his intention’s been plausible, he clearly is thoughtless.

    Ashley indirectly or directly has made a massive miscalculation (bigger than the own goals at NUFC which we all know too well) and the buck stops with him anyway but this crisis is moving fast and his gaffe may well be forgotten in coming weeks as we face more and more human and and economic disasters each probably worse than the last.

    I posted a few days ago that the time for recriminations is later and there will be many hard messages to come through and we can see already issues coming home to roost in NHS but adverseries are not making capital as yet.

    As an example anyone remember the Priti Patel bullying accusations ? the country has (had to ) move on and it is likely that this will be longforgotten when we emerge from this as there will be bigger and more far reaching issues consuming Politicians, Civil Servants Press and us and i don’t mean the B word.

    Ashley totally deserves whatever comes his way but don’t as NUFC fans misjudge the likely mood in the country after the worst is over. His gaffe I suspect will be lost in a deluge of them and of no great consequence in the bigger scheme of things.to most people.

    His businesses like others will have to ride out this unique crisis and he may in any event become a casualty that way but the guy is a survivor and there is mail order which is a big part of his business so he may be able to sufficiently ride out next few months and hope to replenish stock as things easy up a little.

    Just using my head and to avoid the pathetic barbs of shill and so on (which I had hoped had vanished) I repeat as others have said it’s all about the money first with him and i can nor wish to in any way defend his actions

    I would like to be wrong but given where we are heading and at the pace we are it will be overlooked by all but us long suffering fans

    Well done runaway777. The food suppliers aren’t getting anywhere enough respect for what they’re doing – often on low wages – so good on you for helping out. Stay safe
    I’m told the real likelihood is that this is spreading by touch rather than airborne so advice is to wipe steering wheels and wash clothes after each shift so you don’t take it in the house with you

    I think a response to you Ron has been caught in the Blog safety net as I also mentioned a wprld leader.

    Whatever – not worth rewording and reposting as just an aside and of no consequence

    My daughter works at the RVI and we have lent her my wife’s car to get to work (as public transport iffy). Although there is supposed to be free parking now for NHS staff when she came to leave a car park in the RVI the jobsworth on the exit insisted she paid saying that particular car park wasn’t included – how are they supposed to know which ones are?. If this is the kind of *rsehole NHS staff have to deal with – what hope is there?
