DANNY ROSE has dealt a blow to Newcastle United’s hopes of re-signing him ahead of the start of next season by claiming he would be happy to see out the final year of his current contract with Tottenham.

Rose spent the second half of last season on loan at St James’ Park, and his performances were sufficiently impressive to persuade Magpies manager Steve Bruce to try to sign him permanently this summer.

Bruce is also willing to consider another loan deal for the left-back, who has entered the final 12 months of his deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and with Jose Mourinho having frozen Rose out of his plans, it had been assumed the former England international would be moving on in the next few weeks.

However, rather than seeking to draw a line under his time with Spurs, Rose has attempted to build some bridges by expressing a desire to return to the first-team fold under Mourinho.

“I am very happy to stay at Tottenham and see my last ten or 11 months out, I would love to,” said Rose. “There is nothing I want more than to play one more time in front of the fans.

“My last game for Spurs was a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool and at the time I didn’t know that was going to be or could be my last game for Spurs. I want nothing more than to play in front of the Tottenham fans one more time, just to cherish all the moments we have had over the years with them.

“They have always been good to me, I have possibly given them reasons in the past not to be so good to me, but they know when it was game time I gave everything for them. I will continue to do that as long as I am contracted to Tottenham.”

Yorkshire-born Rose has also been linked with a possible move to Leeds United, with Marceloa Bielsa keen to add some experience to his squad following his side’s promotion from the Championship.

Bruce is hoping to hold further talks with Spurs officials in the next couple of weeks, although with Daniel Levy renowned for driving a hard bargain, it will not be easy to agree a fee even if Rose can be persuaded to return to St James’.

With that in mind, Bruce has been assessing Sassuolo defender Rogerio, a 22-year-old Brazilian who has been capped at youth level, as a potential alternative to fill the left-back berth.

“I am very relaxed, it is off season now before it all starts again in a few weeks,” added Rose, in an interview with the Second Captains podcast.

“I will just have to wait and see, but for me I would love nothing more than to play for those (Spurs) fans once again.”
