England international Danny Rose has joined Newcastle United on loan from Tottenham Hotspur until the end of the season. FutbaNews understands that there is no option in the deal for Steve Bruce’ side to sign him on a permanent basis in the summer.
Rose, who will wear the No 28 shirt, joined the Magpies on Thursday after been involved in many controversies while at the North London club. He had criticised Spurs’ transfer policy and was involved in a heated argument with manager Jose Mourinho for snubbing him for the Premier League clash at Watford two weeks ago.
The former Sunderland defender, who is temporarily leaving Tottenham after a 13 years spell, has made over 200 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring ten goals. The left-back has also featured 29 times for England.
The 29-year-old is eligible to make his debut against Norwich on Saturday at the St James’ Park after agreeing to personal terms with his new club. The left-back is joining the team at a time the Magpies’ backline is suffering from injuries, with Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett both ruled out for the rest of the season.
In a statement on their website, Newcastle announced the arrival of Rose to the club. Making him Magpies’ head coach Steve Bruce’s third signing of the January transfer window, following the arrivals of Nabil Bentaleb and Valentino Lazaro.
The club said: “England international Danny Rose has joined Newcastle United on loan from Tottenham Hotspur until the end of the season.
“The 29-year-old full-back, who played in the 2018 World Cup semi-final and the 2019 Champions League final, is Magpies’ head coach Steve Bruce’s third signing of the January transfer window, following the arrivals of Nabil Bentaleb and Valentino Lazaro.
“He will wear the number 28 shirt for United, and is eligible to make his Magpies bow in Saturday’s Premier League game against Norwich City at St. James’ Park.”
Also speaking to NUFC TV about joining the club, Rose reveals his excitement about beginning another chapter in his footballing career. He said: “It’s a great honour for me to be here. I’m so grateful that the manager has brought me in and I’m looking to repay him in every way I can as soon as I’m playing.
“For me, it’s really exciting that I can come here and have the chance to play in front of the Newcastle fans.
“Newcastle is one of the biggest clubs in England. I spoke to the manager last night and he told me there were 50,000 fans here at the weekend against Oxford.
“You can’t go wrong with that kind of passion and support from the fans, and it’s something I’m looking forward to.”
