The latest reports claim that Tottenham Hotspur have agreed to send Danny Rose out on loan to Newcastle United for the remainder of the season.
Rose used to be a regular presence for Spurs at left-back but has made just one start under new boss, Jose Mourinho. He has been replaced by Ryan Sessegnon and Japhet Tanganga.
Tottenham also have Ben Davies as an option but the Welshman isn’t doing too well for gametime either. Newcastle have been looking for defensive reinforcements and having Rose in their ranks will be a major boost in surviving relegation.
The Magpies are seven points clear of the drop zone but there are still 14 games left to be played. Mourinho, on the other hand, is mainly focusing on a top-four finish. Tottenham are currently sixth in the standings but still 6 points astray of Chelsea.
Tanganga’s emergence under the new manager has put a lot of players’ position under threat. The powerful fullback can play on either wings and has traits similar to that of a young Kyle Walke. He can barrel down the wings, getting past any opposition defenders in the way to put in teasing deliveries. Pretty soon Serge Aurier will be fighting for playing time as well if the 21-year-old continues to progress at the current rate.
