Signing Danny Rose permanently from Tottenham might not be straightforward for Newcastle.
The left-back moved back north in January, joining the Magpies on loan until the end of the season.
We’re yet to see much of Rose yet, although he showed some nice touches off the bench against Norwich.
You’d like to think the 29-year-old would start our next game against Arsenal, as he’s a lot more reliable than Matt Ritchie on the left side of defence.
If Rose impresses during his loan spell, a lot of fans will be clamouring for him to become a permanent Magpie. However, there might be an issue.
According to the Sun, European giants PSG will be scouting Rose between now and the end of the season with a view to signing him in the summer.
While Newcastle is lovely, it’s not quite Paris. And the chance to play in the Champions League again might be too much for Rose to turn down.
Before Jetro Willems went down with injury, Newcastle’s future left-back options seemed clear. Willems would make his loan deal permanent and make the position his own. But his injury and Rose’s arrival has changed things.
Then to make matters more complicated, we might face competition from PSG if we want to sign the Tottenham man.
Big decisions need to be made between now and the end of the season by the likes of Steve Bruce and Lee Charnley…a frightening prospect.
