Danny Rose has hinted that he would like to stay at Newcastle United beyond his loan spell as he claimed that he has ‘settled in very well’ in the North East as he spoke in the Tyneside club’s digital match day programme (via The Shields Gazette) ahead of their game in the Premier League against West Ham United.
The Magpies ended up drawing the match 2-2 at St. James’ Park, having come from behind twice thanks to goals from Miguel Almiron and Jonjo Shelvey.
However, the focus before the game was on Rose and his comments in the programme, as he suggested that he would not like to return to Tottenham Hotspur and instead stay at the Toon beyond this 2019/20 season.
“I’ve settled in very well. I love the lads and members of staff. I’m staying in a hotel, and, honestly, you wouldn’t believe the things that I have to say about how the hotel have treated me throughout all this,” said Rose.
“The lengths they’ve gone to, honestly – it’ been very surreal how nice people have been. They’ve tried everything to make sure my stay as been as smooth as possible.
“For me, I’d love to play for Newcastle for longer than what’s on my contract.”
Should Newcastle sign Rose permanently given the chance?
The left-back has arguably been a key man for Steve Bruce so far in his time at NUFC, as they have picked up nine points from seven games in the top flight when Rose has played a part, according to Transfermarkt.
He has also proven to be a handy option for Bruce given that Jetro Willems has been missing since January with a cruciate ligament rupture.
Rose may be wise to stay on at Newcastle as Jose Mourinho only played him five times in all competitions, as he only completed 90 minutes under the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss twice in the UEFA Champions League group stages and never in England’s highest division, as per Transfermarkt.
With the proposed takeover of the club by Amanda Staveley’s Saudi Arabian-led group looming over Tyneside at the moment, perhaps it gives an added incentive for Rose to stay and perform well to earn a permanent deal.
