Newcastle United are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose on loan until the end of the season, that is according to a report from the Telegraph.
It is suggested that Steve Bruce was interested in taking the England international in the summer and that Rose may once again be on the former Aston Villa manager’s wish list in this transfer window.
The Tyneside club are currently short of options at left-back after both Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett were ruled out for the rest of the season (BBC Sport). That leaves them with just Matt Ritchie who plays in that role, so signing another player in that position this month would certainly make sense.
Meanwhile, Rose has lost his place in the Spurs team recently under Jose Mourinho. Indeed he hasn’t played in either of their last two matches against Middlesbrough and Watford (Transfermarkt), with youngsters Ryan Sessegnon and Japhet Tanganga being preferred.
Added to that, they also have Ben Davies who is closing in on a return from injury (Telegraph) so it could be that the 29-year-old finds his opportunities in north London limited if he does stay.
One thing is for sure, it seems that plenty of Tottenham fans wouldn’t be too upset to see him leave. Indeed many have taken to Twitter to urge the club to allow him to move to the Magpies this month. Here is what some had to say…

Good, another bad Apple that needs moving on. Too much talking in the press rather than talking on the pitch.
