Tottenham fullback Danny Rose is heading to Premier League rivals Newcastle United on loan for the rest of the season.

According to Standard Sport, a fee of £2million has been agreed between the two clubs.

The report adds that the deal is a straight loan, with the Magpies having no obligation to make the move a permanent one.

Bournemouth and Watford were also interest in the England international, with Rose having accepted that his time at Tottenham is up.

Rose had previously vowed to run down the final 18 months of his contract until summer 2021, but has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho and has not been included in the squad for the last four matches.

Rose will become the second fullback to leave Tottenham on loan this week after Kyle Walker-Peters moved to Southampton on loan on Wednesday.

Spurs had hoped to sell both players permanently but became resigned to allowing them to leave on loan deals until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Christian Eriksen said he wanted to “try something new” after writing an emotional letter to Tottenham’s fans.

Eriksen ended his six-and-a-half-year spell with the north London club on Tuesday after he completed a £17million move to Inter Milan.


“Dear Tottenham fans,” wrote the 27-year-old in a post on Twitter. “I don’t know where to start!

“I didn’t have time to say goodbye to everyone, even though I felt like I played a lot of games where everyone said and thought I would be gone the next day.

“I have so many unbelievable memories over the last 6.5 years I was at Spurs.” Read more…
