As per the journalist’s tweet, Rose will play for the Tyneside club before reuniting with former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur to sort out his long-term future, if any, with Spurs.
Would you sign Rose permanently given the chance?
Ornstein also shared an article for The Athletic by writer Dominic Fifield, who explained the contract dilemmas that several players are facing due to the global pandemic crisis.
In the report, Fifield talks about how every English club due to play ahead of Project Restart will have to submit confirmations of the players that have agreed to sign a contract extension before the games are set to resume.
Indeed, Rose is reportedly one of these players. The £14.4m-valued defender has played in a total of six matches in all competitions so far for the Magpies in the 2019/20 campaign, according to Transfermarkt.
With plenty more matches to be played in England’s highest division, as well as their tie at St. James’ Park against Manchester City in the FA Cup, perhaps it is a good idea for Rose to carry on playing for the Toon this term, to give NUFC an extra body that may be needed if they suffer any injuries in defence.
It could well be that the English international is a Newcastle player if and when the proposed takeover is completed too, providing that Amanda Staveley’s Saudi Arabia-led group can get the deal over the line soon.
Geordies, was it a good idea for Rose to sign an extension? Comment below!
