Danny Rose is set to join Newcastle on loan for the remainder of the season ahead of the transfer deadline, after falling out-of-favour under Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.
The England international has made just three Premier League starts since Mourinho’s arrival at the north London club in November, with the 29-year-old now keen to secure regular first-team opportunities as he bids to earn his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad ahead of this summer’s European Championships.
According to the Guardian, Newcastle have now agreed to pay Spurs a loan fee of £2m to take Rose to St James’ Park for the second half of the season, the full-back bolstering Steve Bruce’s options at left-back after the club saw both Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett ruled out for the rest of the campaign through injury in recent weeks.
Rose previously spent a loan spell at North East rivals Sunderland and has spoken before of his desire to return closer to his northern roots, the Doncaster-born full-back having spent over a decade in the capital since joining Spurs from Leeds as a teenager in 2007.
Despite having previously insisting he would not be forced out of the club, the deal is believed to include a clause to make the switch permanent in the summer should Rose impress over the coming months.
