Newcastle United are reportedly unlikely to sign Tottenham Hotspur ace Danny Rose on a permanent deal in the summer transfer window as a source told Football Insider that there has been “no contact” between the Tyneside club and Spurs over the player since the 2019/20 season ended.
Indeed, the £14.4m-valued man spent the second half of the campaign on loan in the northeast from the Lilywhites having joined in the January transfer window, playing in 13 games in all competitions under Steve Bruce, according to Transfermarkt.
However, it seems as if his future may lie away from St. James’ Park, with Rose himself even admitting that his future may still be in North London with Tottenham under Jose Mourinho.
Should Newcastle sign Rose permanently given the chance?
The 30-year old has been a loyal servant to Spurs, having played in a total of 214 matches in all competitions over the past decade, scoring 10 goals and making 29 assists, as per Transfermarkt.
However, Rose was limited to just 16 appearances for Tottenham in all competitions last season, having played the full 90 minutes in just 11 of these (via Transfermarkt).
The loan deal seemed to suit both parties, but now it looks like the Magpies will miss out on a potential permanent transfer.
This may come as a blow to the Toon, who will arguably need to bring in a left-back following the return of Jetro Willems to Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany, with the Dutchman having also spent the season on loan at Newcastle.
Nevertheless, if a reasonable transfer fee can be agreed, Rose could well see himself playing in the famous black-and-white stripes again.
