Lots of Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was reported by The Daily Star that Tottenham left-back Danny Rose is on Steve Bruce’s radar, as he looks to seal his first signing as manager on Tyneside.
The former Sunderland boss has already identified the left-back department as a problem position at St James’ Park, and has Rose in his sights as the man to solve the issue.
The prospect of Steve Bruce at the helm has Newcastle fans calling for the return of a very unpopular former manager in the video below…
The 27-cap England international impressed for Spurs last season as they made the Champions League final, but appears to be a victim of the club’s full-back revamp after being left out of the pre-season tour – fellow full-back Kieran Trippier has already left for Atletico Madrid.
The Magpies are weighing up a £15m offer for the 29-year-old, who has played for bitter rivals Sunderland in the past, and Rose would compete with Paul Dummett for the left-back spot if he did end up on Tyneside.
Let’s see what the Newcastle fans on Twitter have been saying about the news…
Yes. Danny Rose, CL finalist is going to come and play for #nufc on 30k a week to overlap with Christian Atsu week in week out.

He’s not coming why on earth would he want to defend every game ? Along with having to scrap to avoid relegation all season there is no chance. Much better options out there for Danny plus he’s better than that.
