Steve Bruce names “quality player” NUFC plan to sign this summer – “This is what we need”

Steve Bruce has confirmed the club are planning to pursue a permanent deal for Danny Rose once his loan move from Spurs expires.

The Newcastle boss got his man in January, appearing to beat several Premier League sides to sign the England left-back on loan, however he’s revealed today that he’s planning to extend his stay this summer.

Here’s what he’s told the Chronicle about the 29-year-old, stating he’s a “quality player” who “gave everybody a lift” when he arrived a few months ago:

“He is an established quality player.

“We managed to get him through the door and he will be great for the next three months. And hopefully longer after that.”

“He is a great thinker to have in the dressing room.

“When he walked through the door gave everybody a lift.

“That is what a really good player does.”

“Listen, Danny Rose is a stick on.

“He is what you call stick on quality. He was England’s left-back only last November.

“I am delighted with him.

That is the quality we brought in and that is the quality we aspire to.

That is what we need.”

As he states in the final line, he clearly feels Rose is the exact calibre of player he’s aspiring to sign this summer – however the completion of this deal could boil down to Tottenham’s asking price.

His current contract at Spurs is due to expire in 12 months time, but the Chronicle have revealed in the same report that the North London club were demanding £20m for any permanent deal back in January.

Considering he turns 30 this summer and will be on big wages, history tells us Mike Ashley won’t be willing to spend too much, with this being the same man who refused to pay £16.5m for Salomon Rondon after his superb season at St James’ Park.

  1. Yes we might need him if Jetro isn’t able to come back due to his serious injury and by then he might be a bit fitter. And getting rid of Matty Longstaff – and maybe his brother as well – for money reasons – is this really a good idea seeing they are ALREADY at the club? You can’t just SELL all these players, as no-one else might want to come instead as replacements!!
