Lots of Newcastle United fans are firmly opposed to the club signing Danny Rose on a permanent deal, after the boss told the Chronicle that he is keen to keep the Tottenham Hotspur defender at St. James’ Park.

Rose moved to Tyneside in the January window on loan following Jetro Willems’ season-ending cruciate ligament injury, and Bruce has since called on the 29-cap England international to start five of the six games to have been available to him.

The 29-year-old failed to paint a positive picture of himself during our most recent Premier League fixtures, with Rose only showing rare flashes of skill against Southampton and looking unfit at home to Burnley.

His fitness levels have left many supporters clear in their view that Rose would not make for a suitable permanent signing in the next transfer window, though Bruce will recommend to the board that a deal is struck.

“He is an established quality player,” the boss said. “We managed to get him through the door and he will be great for the next three months. And hopefully longer after that.

“He is what you call stick on quality. He was England’s left-back only last November. I am delighted with him. That is the quality we brought in and that is the quality we aspire to. That is what we need.”

Tottenham are expected to lower their £20million valuation of Rose in the summer as he will only have a year remaining on his £60,000-per-week contract, though Spurs would owe 10% of any fee to Leeds United as the West Yorkshire side are entitled to a sell-on bonus.

Many Newcastle fans have responded to Bruce’s plans to recommend signing Rose permanently by standing firmly against the potential deal, at least unless the Tottenham fullback is brought to St. James’ Park alongside Eintracht Frankfurt’s Willems.
