Athletic: Danny Rose to stay at Newcastle until the end of the season

New, comments

Not a surprise, but it does pave the way for his exit this summer.

Danny Rose is staying up Tyneside. According to David Ornstein in The Athletic and confirmed in the Chronicle, Tottenham’s longest-tenured player has signed an agreement to stay at Newcastle United until the end of the 2019-20 season, which will stretch into late July.

Rose’s loan was set to expire in June and he could have returned to Spurs, but instead he will opt to play with Toon until the end of the current campaign. Ornstein says that Rose will then return to Tottenham this summer to sort out his future. There’s no option to buy in Rose’s loan contract, so Newcastle will have to negotiate with Daniel Levy if they want to sign him permanently.

That future is pretty likely going to be away from Tottenham Hotspur. Rose had a pretty spectacular falling out with Jose Mourinho after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino in November, with rumors of “altercations” on the training pitch, although Mourinho has been publicly clear that he didn’t have much of a problem with Danny.

Even so, it seems pretty clear that Rose wants to finish his career elsewhere, and while he’ll be coming back to Spurs this summer I don’t expect that we’ll see him start the season wearing a Tottenham shirt. That’s a shame, as far as I’m concerned — he’ll remain one of my all-time favorite Tottenham players, and I’ll miss him greatly.
