Newcastle United: Fans react to Danny Rose news update


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.

Starting with an easy one, against which club did Shelvey make his Newcastle debut?

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.

Should Newcastle avoid a move for Rose?

Yes, he's not worth it

Yes, he's not worth it

No, sign him

No, sign him

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.

All in all, Newcastle fans aren’t keen on signing Rose and some would like the Magpies to sign Jetro Willems permanently instead.

Rose had arrived at the club on loan from Spurs in January of 2020. Willems had joined on a temporary deal from Eintracht Frankfurt as well.

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.
