Tottenham defender Danny Rose is now unlikely to join Newcastle United on a permanent basis this summer, according to Football Insider.
Rose moved to Newcastle on loan in the January transfer window having struggled for game time since Jose Mourinho’s appointment, with the expectation that he would leave the club permanently at the end of the campaign.
But it seems Rose may not have played his final match for Spurs yet.
Football Insider claims a permanent move to Newcastle for Rose is now unlikely, with the Magpies yet to hold talks with Tottenham over a possible deal.
If true, does this mean Rose will have a part to play in Mourinho’s squad next season?
Probably not. The 30-year-old has one year remaining on his current contract, so Spurs will surely try and cash in on him while they still can.
Expect to see Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon competing for the left-back sport once again next term, unless Mourinho wants a new left-back.
Of course, Rose could refuse to leave and sit out his contract at Tottenham – but that doesn’t necessarily mean he will get significant minutes.
