Newcastle United unlikely to sign Danny Rose permanently
The 30-year-old Rose spent the second half of the 2019/20 campaign out on loan at Newcastle United. Having moved to St. James’ Park in January, the England international ended the season with 13 appearances for the Magpies, but failed to contribute with a goal or an assist.
Given that he had become a regular for Steve Bruce’s side since his arrival, it was widely expected that Newcastle would be making his transfer permanent. In fact, the Magpies’ boss himself hinted that the club would open negotiations with Tottenham on the matter, after his loan deal had expired.
Rose, too, had expressed his desire to move to the Tyneside outfit on a permanent basis, having enjoyed his short stint with the club.
However, a move may well be off now, with Newcastle yet to hold any talks with Tottenham for the signing of the 30-year-old. The report further claims that the Magpies are close to signing a different player to strengthen the left-side of their defence, meaning a permanent transfer for Rose could very well be dead in the water.

This makes Rose’s situation far from ideal. The 30-year-old is very much out of favour at Tottenham. And with his contract expiring in less than a year, the club must look to cash in on him this summer.

Newcastle may seemingly have decided to back out from a permanent move for Rose. But there has been interest from his boyhood club Leeds United, who are back in the Premier League after 16 years.
