Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce has expressed his desire to lure Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose to his side.
Bruce on his Friday press conference described Rose as a “class act” as he made it clear he hopes to sign the England left-back on a loan deal though he wasn’t sure if the deal could be possible.
“The kid’s a quality player and a class act. Whether it’s (the signing) possible, who knows,” Bruce said.
Rose is said to be interested in a move outside Spurs after it was reported that his relationship with manager José Mourinho had become tense.
Spurs who tried to offload Rose in the summer is said to be interested in a permanent deal and not any loan movements as they with Rose still having 18 months remaining on his contract.
Apart from Newcastle, Bournemouth and Watford are also in pursuit of Rose as reported by the Guardian with the defender doing all he can to be ready for England’s campaign for the Euros which is slated this year.
Bruce has strengthened his midfield, securing loans for Tottenham’s former midfielder Nabil Bentaleb from Schalke and the Austria winger Valentino Lazaro from Inter Milan.
Lazaro signed too late to play in Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at home to League One Oxford United in front of a 52,000 sell-out crowd as Newcastle aim to reach the fifth round for the first time since 2006, Bentaleb could start.
