Newcastle have agreed a loan deal with Tottenham to take Danny Rose until the end of the season.
Rose has fallen down the pecking order in north London under Jose Mourinho, often consigned to a role on the bench or, more recently, no place in the squad at all.
It was reported that there was a scuffle between the player and Jose, and it is evident he has played his final game for the Lilywhites.
The club are willing to let the left-back leave and have been open to offers throughout the January window, while Newcastle are a side who have been registered with an interest in the past, having monitored Rose’s situation since the summer
Daily Telegraph has revealed that Steve Bruce’s side are closing in on a loan deal for the 29-year-old defender until the end of the season, to soften then blow of Willems’ injury.
The club have agreed to pay a £2m loan fee, and will have the option to purchase Rose in the summer should they wish to. While Rose insisted he would see out the remaining 18 months of his Spurs deal, it presents him with an opportunity to stake a claim in Gareth Southgate’s upcoming Euro 2020 squad.
