‘Class act’ – Bruce admits Newcastle interested in late loan deal for ‘quality player’

Newcastle United are eyeing a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s veteran left-back Danny Rose in the January transfer window, with Steve Bruce labeling the defender as a ‘class act’.

The Magpies are struggling in the full-back department with a number of injuries in the recent past.

On the other hand, Rose is reportedly unsettled at the club since the arrival of manager Jose Mourinho who has preferred other options on the left-hand side of the defensive unit.

Newcastle manager Bruce was asked as cited by the Guardian about whether the Toon Army are considering making a move for Rose in the ongoing transfer window.

“The kid’s a quality player and a class act,” Bruce said.

“Whether it’s possible, who knows.”

Reported Newcastle target Rose has joined Spurs in the summer of 2007 when he moved from Leeds United.

Since then, the 29-year-old has represented the North London-based club in 214 matches in all competitions, managing to score 10 times and also provided 29 assists.

In the ongoing campaign, Rose has represented Spurs in 16 matches where he has managed to provide two assists.
