Tottenham are set to sell Danny Rose to Newcastle United, after Jose Mourinho decided that the left-back isn’t in Spurs’ plans going forward. The England international has been on loan at Newcastle since January, and he’s currently due to return to Tottenham at the end of the season.
Rose has had a fiery relationship with Spurs in recent years, and his time in north London looks like it’s finally coming to an end.
The 29-year-old struggled for game time under Mourinho, since the manager arrived at the end of 2019.
After making just one league appearance in the Spurs starting XI in two months, Rose moved to the north east in search of regular football.
But, he’s now ready to make his move permanent, with Newcastle chiefs agreeing that the deal makes sense, according to The Northern Echo.

Spurs have also agreed to let Rose go, as he’s not believed to be a part of their future plans.
Mourinho has decided to play Jan Vertonghen and Japhet Tanganga out of position in recent months, although Ryan Sessegnon is expected to be the long-term left-back.
Tottenham will be happy to settle for a realistic transfer fee, as they’re looking to get rid of Rose sooner rather than later, with just one year left on his current contract.
Spurs will also lose his £60,000-a-week salary from their wage bill, which Newcastle won’t have a problem taking on.

Rose’s relationship with Spurs has been on the rocks in recent years.
He claimed that a Spurs member of staff wanted to know if he was “crazy” after being diagnosed with depression.
A year later, ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro, Rose revealed that he wanted to let his contract run down at Tottenham.
“It’s pretty obvious what happened [in the summer]. People upstairs at Tottenham were trying to do what they were trying to do,” Rose told the Evening Standard.

“I’ve said [to them] I’ve got 18 months left on my contract and I’m not going anywhere until my contract has finished.
“In January, you’re probably going to hear something [about my future]. I’m telling you right now that I’m not going anywhere until my contract is finished.
“[Tottenham chairman] Daniel Levy told me in the summer there was no new contract for me at Tottenham, which is fine. I respect that. We move on.
“My contract is up in 18 months’ time and I’ll leave the football club then. People [in the media] can save their time trying to get stuff ready for January about me being sold.

“Because I can tell you now: it ain’t happening. I know what people were trying to do in the summer… There were no bids — that was rubbish.”
But, despite his claims, Rose sealed a loan switch to the Magpies in January, and has played in all five Premier League matches since his move.
The former Sunderland left-back could still be in contention to make Gareth Southgate’s England squad for next summer.
He faces competition from Ben Chilwell, Sessegnon, and Luke Shaw.
