Newcastle United loanee Danny Rose has made an interesting transfer claim that has riled up some of the Magpies faithful this week.
The Spurs man was in conversation with The Lockdown Tactics podcast where he revealed that he would like to work with Brendan Rodgers before he retires.
He said: “Getting to work with him for two months was brilliant,’ said Rose. ‘As an 18 or 19-year-old, I had never experienced training sessions like that before. His ideas in training, it was brilliant and I have always said that he is somebody I would love to play for again.”
And he then joked that “someone will have to buy Ben Chilwell first” (quotes sourced from the Daily Mail).
But this hasn’t gone down well with supporters at St James’ Park with many claiming that they don’t want to see him stay after his loan spell – and that they’d probably rather land the Foxes left-back instead.
Rose still has a year to run on his current deal in north London, meaning the northeast outfit would have to fork out a transfer fee if they decide to keep him following this temporary switch.
The 29-year-old has made six appearances at United and looked to have become Steve Bruce’s first-choice left-back until football was halted.
Some fans would even have Jetro Willems over the Englishman despite his injury problems this campaign.
Here’s what has been said…
Honestly he can go to a Leicester I would take jetro all day over rose

He also might want to go back in time 6 years when he was considered to be a good player!
Not good enough to sign permanently for Mike Ashley era Newcastle United.
No way Leicester would or should want him.

Back to Spurs he goes, hadn’t played well enough to earn a deal here anyway imo and I would much prefer Jetro back. I can see Rose at Leeds next season

Would be glad to see the back of him to be honest,

Send him back to Tottenham asap #nufc

His attitude has been shocking from the day he arrived. Don’t need him anyway. Bye!!
— Deano Dagleish (@ChuckNovice) May 22, 2020
He’s over weight & overrated from what I’ve seen so far at NUFC, not in same class as Jetro Willems imo
