As per a report from the reliable Northern Echo, Tottenham will not stand in the way of Newcastle making Danny Rose’s transfer permanent this summer.
Rose joins Newcastle
On the back of weeks of speculation, English stopper Rose’s move to St. James’ Park was made official on deadline day back in January.
The transfer made sense for all parties involved, with Newcastle having been on the lookout for reinforcements at left-back following the long-term injury picked up by Jetro Willems, and Rose majorly struggling for game-time at Spurs.
On the back of Jose Mourinho replacing Mauricio Pochettino on the club’s bench at the end of November, the 29-year-old had managed just a solitary Premier League start.
As a result, Rose put pen-to-paper on an agreement with Steve Bruce’s Magpies for the remainder of the campaign:
Done deal ✅
Welcome, Danny! ⚫️⚪️#NUFC

Rose set for permanent stay?
Crucially, however, it has since been widely-reported that Newcastle’s deal for Rose does not include either an option or obligation to buy.
But, as outlined above, this looks unlikely to pose a major problem for the Geordie outfit, if they do, as expected, attempt to make their on-loan stopper’s arrival permanent.
According to Scott Wilson of the Northern Echo, Tottenham are prepared to allow Rose to find a new permanent home this summer.
Jose Mourinho has no long-term plans for the Englishman in north London, while Newcastle have ‘agreed that a permanent deal for Rose makes sense.’
As such, as things stand, a definitive transfer coming to fruition ahead of next season looks highly likely.
