Newcastle United are considering making an offer to Tottenham to sign left-back Danny Rose, according to the Telegraph.
The 29-year-old still has 18 months left on his current deal, but has started just one Premier League game under Jose Mourinho – the 1-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend – and was involved in a training ground incident with the Spurs Head Coach on Sunday after he was omitted from the squad that draw with Watford the previous day.
Mourinho has generally opted to play Jan Vertonghen and summer signing Ryan Sessegnon at left-back since his November arrival – and even 20-year-old Japhet Tanganga was picked over Rose to start there against the Hornets.
Newcastle have suffered a number of injuries recently, including first-choice left-back Jetro Willems, who looks set to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury and the report from the Telegraph suggests that Rose could be seen as an ideal replacement, despite his previous Sunderland connections.
Rose has previously stated that he will run down his current contract, but will be desperate for some first-team action and give himself the best opportunity to force his way into Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the European Championships this summer.
