It’s pretty much an open secret that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to be done with Danny Rose. Danny has been pretty outspoken about his dissatisfaction of at least some of his experiences at Spurs, and it’s also been clear that Tottenham have been trying to offload him for a couple of years now.

But while there didn’t appear to be any takers this past summer, there’s definite interest for Danny now. The biggest seems to be Newcastle United; there are new quotes out today from Toon manager Steve Bruce that express admiration for Rose’s game and suggest he’d like to bring Rose up north to continue his career.

”It would be wrong for me to sit and talk about other people’s players.

“He’s a quality player and a class act the kid. Whether it’s possible, who knows?”

As we’ve said previously, Newcastle would be a pretty good landing spot for Danny — it’s “up north” which is where Rose has said he wants to play before the end of his career, and Newcastle are in need of a left back after losing Jetro Willems for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

But according to Sky, Newcastle aren’t the only ones interested. Bournemouth have reportedly made an enquiry to Tottenham about Rose, and Watford are also interested, along with three other unnamed Premier League clubs.

That’s if Rose is at all interested. He publicly said this fall that he plans to see out his Tottenham contract and leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the 2020-2021 season. He’s currently not getting minutes with Jose Mourinho, and with only a few days left in the window it’s possible his Spurs future could come down to whether the immovable object of Danny’s resolve can be pushed aside by the unstoppable force of Daniel Levy’s transfer dealings.
