Danny follows Valentino Lazaro as two loanees to extend their stays until hopefully the FA Cup final on August 1st. Lazaro’s situation is a bit different as Newcastle have a purchase option on the 24-year-old while Rose’s deal is just a straight loan.
So the Austrian will be pushing to impress for the remainder of the season as he tries to secure a permanent move or give Inter Milan some food for thought for next season.
That just leaves Nabil Bentaleb of the three players who joined on loan in January to get his situation sorted. Bentaleb’s parent club Schalke is reportedly very willing to reach an agreement with Newcastle as they hope we take up his £8.5m purchase option.
There’s still work to do with extending Javier Manquillo and Andy Carroll, whose contracts run out at the end of the month. We’re also on pins and needles at the moment, waiting for news on Matty Longstaff’s decision on his future.
He reportedly is due to meet with Steve Bruce in the hopes the head coach can convince the young Magpie to sign the latest offer. If not, it will be a travesty to see one of our best young prospects walk out the door and a local lad at that.
