Newcastle United have confirmed the signing of Danny Rose on a loan deal from Spurs until the end of the season.
The England international left-back becomes Steve Bruce’s third signing of the month and will wear the number 28 shirt.
It’s not yet known if the dead includes an option/obligation to sign him on a permanent deal this summer, however it has been confirmed that he’s eligible to play in Saturday’s game against Norwich.
Here’s what the 29-year-old’s had to say to NUFC TV since putting pen to paper in the last few moments:
“Straight away I called my agent and said ‘I want to go’ and ‘can you make it happen?'”
“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.”
Steve Bruce then said the following when asked about Rose’s arrival on Tynesde, saying he’s ‘absolutely delighted’ to sign a player of Danny’s calibre and ‘proven quality’:
“It’s been clear that we’ve needed some help in the left back position, so we’re absolutely delighted to get a player of Danny’s calibre through the door.
“He has proven quality, as he’s shown over several years for club and country, and is a class act.
“It’s a big coup for us to get him here and we’re looking forward to working with him.”
A brilliant signing and one that we’ve done well to complete so quickly after Jetro WIllems was ruled out for the season a few weeks ago.
Welcome to the club, Danny!
