Newcastle United are set to confirm the loan signing of Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose on a loan deal until the end of the season, according to The Guardian.
The Magpies have agreed to pay a £2 million fee to land the Spurs man until the summer, the report has added.
Newcastle have had major issues at left-back this season, with Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett both unavailable due to serious injuries.
Rose has been linked with a Tottenham exit for a number of transfer windows and given his experience and ability has surely not been short of suitors.
As such, Newcastle must consider the deal something of a coup, with the England international able to add attacking impetus on the left flank.
Magpies manager Steve Bruce praised Rose earlier this week in public and will hope to get the best out of the Tottenham man at St James’ Park.
Newcastle are having a relatively positive season and are currently sitting in 14th place in the Premier League standings.
The Tyneside outfit have been relatively solid at the back and the potential addition of specialist left-back Rose to Bruce’s squad will only enhance this further.
