Many Newcastle United fans have been talking about the latest news update involving Danny Rose that emerged on social media recently.
Journalist Lee Ryder recently tweeted a link to an article about the English left-back. The article revealed that Rose is ‘keen’ to convert his loan move to Newcastle United into a permanent switch. The piece claims that Tottenham don’t want to keep Rose and the player doesn’t want to stay at the north London club either, but it is now just about the fee that Spurs want for him.
Ryder tweeted this article, saying that Spurs want a ‘big fee’ to part ways with the left-back. This tweet from the journalist caught the attention of many Toon fans. They made their negative opinions about Rose very clear.
Well spurs can have him back, what has he proved to be worth a ‘big fee’. Oh yeah forgot he’s English

Should Newcastle avoid a move for Rose?
Yes, he's not worth it
No, sign him
Nope, let him go when his contracts up.

Not bothered about signing Rose. Not been that impressive, hasn’t looked near fit (before and after lockdown). If we get taken over, we should aim higher. If we don’t then there’s no chance of paying the going rate.

These fans feel that Rose isn’t worth a ‘big’ fee, with two fans saying that the left-back hasn’t done enough at St. James’ Park to command that sort of worth in the current market.
Not just them, but some other Newcastle fans also had a negative opinion about this potential deal.
Whatever they’re asking for, half it and it’s still not worth it. Get @JetroWillems_15 in

If they listen to the fans they’ll realise they want @JetroWillems_15

He’s good but he’s got nothing on @JetroWillems_15 . We need to be buying Jetro

It’s Daniel Levy, of course Spurs want a big fee

All in all, Newcastle fans aren’t keen on signing Rose and some would like the Magpies to sign Jetro Willems permanently instead.
As per Whoscored, Willems has been the club’s fourth-best performing player in the 2019/20 season. Prior to his injury, he had picked up a rating of 6.84 in the Premier League, while Rose has racked up a rating of 6.44 (via WhoScored).
It shows that Willems has clearly had a better season, while he is also 26-years-old, four years younger than Rose. As such, signing Willems instead of the Spurs man would, in our opinion, make sense.
