Conflicting Danny Rose claims emerge as Sky Sports & NUFC reporter say different things about loan deal

One thing that seems certain based on widespread reports on Wednesday night is that Newcastle United have struck a deal to sign Danny Rose.

His arrival on loan move seems imminent, but conflicting reports have emerged from Sky Sports and The Mail’s Craig Hope regarding the agreement in place (or lack of it) to sign him permanently at the end of the season.

Sky Sports’ Pete Graves states that he’s expected to sign on Thursday, train with the team on Friday and make the squad against Norwich on Saturday, but states there’s NO ‘option or obligation’ to make his loan move permanent – suggesting it’s a straight loan.

Graves also adds (in another tweet) that we still have an option to sign Willems permanently – and that everyone at the club remains impressed by the recently injured Dutchman.

Now to NUFC reporter Craig Hope, who appears to have been told something very different regarding the Danny Rose deal (and the future of Jetro Willems as a result).

The Mail’s North-East reporter claims we have an ‘obligation to buy’ the Spurs left-back in place at the end of his loan move – meaning he’ll essentially become a permanent Newcastle United player once he arrives:

If this is right and there’s an agreement that we must sign the 29-year-old permanently at the end of any loan, it could be bad news for Jetro Willems as Hope suggests.

The Frankfurt loanee has been superb, but signing Rose permanently would suggest we’re passing up on the chance to keep the Dutchman on Tyneside following a devastating ACL injury. Unless we plan to sign both, that is..

Either way, the signing of Rose is a good one – whether he’s here until the end of the season or here to stay!
