Danny Rose free to join Newcastle United permanently
According to the Northern Echo, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho will not stand in the way of Danny Rose if he chooses to make his stay permanent at Newcastle United.
The 29-year-old moved to Tyneside after spending the season on the periphery in North London. It is likely that the player’s loan will be extended until the end of the season once the coronavirus crisis subsides and the season can resume. (h/t Northern Echo)
For the time being, Newcastle’s plans of recruitment have been shelved. The club has also banned face to face interactions between player’s agents and club officials until further notice. (h/t Northern Echo)
According to the report, Magpies manager Steve Bruce is in constant touch with the head of recruitment Steve Nickson and managing director Lee Charnley. The three of them are on the same page in agreeing to make Rose’s deal permanent.
There is likely to be no opposition on the same from Tottenham. Mourinho does not see the player as a part of his future plans at the club and will not throw a fuss if the player leaves. (h/t Northern Echo)
Rose will also enter the final year of his contract this summer. He had earlier complained of his lack of playing time at Spurs and moving to Newcastle will ensure he gets enough opportunities to impress Gareth Southgate ahead of next summer’s Euros. (h/t Northern Echo)
The player is also keen on a move to the Magpies (h/t Northern Echo). He has roots in the area, which played a key role in his initial decision to join on loan in the first place. Rose has earlier spent time playing for Newcastle’s arch-rivals Sunderland on loan in the 2012/13 season.
Newcastle should not have a problem affording the player’s £60,000-a-week wages. The Magpies will also not have to pay over the odds given Tottenham’s willingness to get the player off their books. (h/t Northern Echo)

The transfer if it takes place, will bring to an end Rose’s 13-year association with Spurs. He has made 214 appearances for the club and was a part of the squad that lost to Liverpool in the 2019 Champions League final. He was also twice selected in the PFA Team of the Year.
