According to Sky Sports, both Bournemouth and Watford are competing with Newcastle United for the signing of Danny Rose.
Steve Bruce all but confirmed his interest in the Spurs outcast this morning, describing the 29-year-old as a “quality player” and “class act – but it seems TWO Premier League clubs are also in the running.
Sky confirm that both ourselves, Bournemouth and Watford have made ‘loan enquiries’, however it seems Tottenham prefer a permanent deal – or loan which includes an ‘obligation to buy’ at the end of the season.
Here’s a snippet from Sky Sports’ piece:
Bournemouth have enquired about signing Tottenham left-back Danny Rose.
Watford and Newcastle have also enquired to sign Rose on loan, but Spurs would prefer a permanent sale or a loan with an obligation to buy in the summer.
The England international, who is keen to play at Euro 2020 and needs regular first-team football to force his way into the squad, is of interest to as many as six Premier League teams this month.
At 29, Rose doesn’t fit in Ashley’s buying policy, however our need for a new left-back has intensified after left-sided duo Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett suffered were ruled out for the season last week.
He’d be a smart addition until the end of the season, but it seems Spurs want rid of him permanently.
Would Mike Ashley sanction a permanent move for a player approaching 30 on big wages? And would his arrival on a permanent move (or loan with obligation to buy) mean bad news for Jetro Willems’ hopes of returning to the club this summer?
