Newcastle complete loan deal for Spurs defender Rose

Newcastle United have signed defender Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspur on loan until the end of the season.

The
29-year-old is Newcastle manager Steve Bruce’s third signing of the
January transfer window and follows midfielders Valentino Lazaro and
Nabil Bentaleb into the club, who are 14th in the Premier League.

“It’s
a great honour for me to be here,” Rose, who has 29 England caps, told
Newcastle’s website: “I’m so grateful that the manager has brought me in
and I’m looking to repay him in every way I can as soon as I’m
playing.”

Rose had said in November that he was prepared to run down the final 18 months of his contract at Tottenham and leave for free after not being handed a new deal.
