Danny Rose admits Newcastle move is NOT his top priority after returning to Tottenham

Speaking to the Second Captains podcast, Danny Rose has revealed his wish to stay at Spurs – suggesting a permanent move to Newcastle United is NOT his priority this summer.

The England international spent the second half of last season on Tyneside and was largely average and unconvincing during his loan spell, with many raising concerns about his fitness levels.

He has been linked with a cut-price move to us on a permanent basis, with Bruce openly admitting his eagerness to keep him and it widely reported that he was keen to stay, but his latest comments will hardly have supporters clamouring for him to do so!

Here’s what he’s had to say in full:

“I am very happy to stay at Tottenham and see my last ten or 11 months out, I would love to.

“There is nothing I want more than to play one more time in front of the fans.

“My last game for Spurs was a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool and at the time I didn’t know that was going to be or could be my last game for Spurs.

I want nothing more than to play in front of the Tottenham fans one more time, just to cherish all the moments we have had over the years with them.

“They have always been good to me, I have possibly given them reasons in the past not to be so good to me, but they know when it was game time I gave everything for them. I will continue to do that as long as I am contracted to Tottenham.”

“I am very relaxed, it is off season now before it all starts again in a few weeks.

“I will just have to wait and see, but for me I would love nothing more than to play for those fans once again.”

His position is one that we are seriously short on going into the new season, with Paul Dummett the only recognised left-back in the squad.

Jetro Willems remains vocal in his support of NUFC on social media, and has endeared himself to the fans following his impressive loan spell at St James’ Park over the first half of the 2019/20 season.

He would be a popular acquisition among Toon fans and could leave Frankfurt on the cheap this summer too.

Time to sack off Rose, who’s clearly got an eye on salvaging his career at Spurs, and go back in for Willems – a younger and hungrier alternative who also looked the better of the two!

  1. Now only need to hear Bentaleb has gone too!

    Rose is happy to eat pie’s on the bench – well at home – and Bentaleb isn’t Premiership quality!

    Now we just need new owners to get rid of the 3 numpty’s = Ashley, Charmless & Bruce!


  2. Seriously? “…largely average and unconvincing “?

    Rose was quality and filled in superbly.

    There are times when Toon fans just need to get over their hatred of Spurs, which I assume is founded in the myth that Ashley is a Spurs fan, and get on and support the club.

    It’s unbelievable that Rose played solidly and gets comments like that above, while Lascelles plays like an arthritic donkey and still comes out smelling of roses. Rose’s what I’m not sure.

    Is this just a little venting because Rose has gone back to his club and suggested he doesn’t want to come back to us again?
    Is this just a bit of a childish rant?

    We had a handful of leftbacks out injured and the Spurs loanee did a sterling job.

    Don’t be so juvenile and give him the credit he earned.


  3. Charlie Bennett, your article smacks of sour grapes to me. I’m a rank and file Spurs fan and often read that the Geordies were regularly singing Rose’s praises. Danny is a very good player and didn’t become a regular for England for nothing however, he had a major problem with Pochettino for what ever reason and wanted to get away. Now that Poch is gone and Mourinho is at the helm, he wants in again. I for one would have Danny back in a heartbeat because he’s head and shoulders above Davies our current LB.


  4. Pleased with this news. He huffed and puffed up and down the pitch. Very average however this is what is in the bargain basement for SDFC. Roll on loans and frees. Bruceless will continue to wear out players and destroy the confidence of the team who have no idea what to do on the pitch.
