Tottenham Hotspur have indicated to Newcastle United that they are open to discussing a permanent move for Danny Rose this summer, while the left-back himself is said to be willing to ignore interest from elsewhere to stay at St James’ Park, according to a report from The Northern Echo.
Rose’s long-term future has looked set to lie away from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for some time. He told the London Evening Standard earlier in the season that he was planning to leave Spurs when his contract expired next summer.
He changed his plans in January by joining Newcastle on loan. So far, he has made five Premier League appearances for Steve Bruce’s men.
And that has convinced that Magpies to look at making his move permanent. The Northern Echo reports that Bruce, Steve Nickson and Lee Charnley have all agreed that signing Rose in the summer makes sense for the club. His £60,000-a-week wages are not said to be a problem.
And they have reportedly received further encouragement.
The Northern Echo reports that Spurs are ready to cut a deal. And they are not planning to demand an unrealistic transfer fee.
The report adds that Rose is keen to stay on Tyneside beyond this season despite any potential interest from elsewhere.
TBR View – Move best for all parties
In truth, Rose making another appearance for Tottenham has looked somewhat unlikely for some time.
So a permanent move to Newcastle looks to be best for all parties at this stage.
Spurs can secure a reasonable fee for a player who otherwise would be heading into the final year of his contract. Newcastle meanwhile, will land a player who has consistently been one of the Premier League’s best left-backs over the last decade.
And of course, Rose can look to get his career back on track after falling closer to the periphery of the squad under Jose Mourinho.
It seems to be in all sides’ interests to reach an agreement once the window opens.
