Paul Robinson is certain Danny Rose will permanently join “great club” Newcastle United this summer.
The former Spurs and Leeds United goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, insisted Steve Bruce is the manager to get the best out of the 29-year-old as he looks to quit Tottenham for good.
Rose joined the Magpies on loan until the end of the season in January with the left-back seemingly out of favour at Spurs.
As revealed by Football Insider this week, FIFA are considering emergency measures to ensure loan players remain at their current club until the end of the season.
Robinson believes Steve Bruce will move to sign the England international on a permanent basis when the transfer window opens.
“I can see Danny Rose signing permanently,” he told Football Insider.
“It is a move away from Spurs like he wants. In all fairness to him when he moved there was a European Championship to aim for and he was way behind Ben Chilwell in the pecking order.
“Newcastle is a great club to play for – the supporters, the stadium and a manager in Steve Bruce that Danny Rose will respond to.
“His honesty and the way he comes across in interviews can often be taken wrong but I find it refreshing. He said at the end of his contract he wanted to leave Spurs and if you are fully committed and still perform there is nothing wrong with that.
“Steve Bruce and Rose are a good fit and if he continues to do well I can see it being made permanent.”
Rose has made 6 appearances since arriving at St. James Park, establishing himself as first-choice left-back in the absence of the injured Paul Dummett and Jetro Willems.
In other Newcastle United news, Alex Bruce has told Football Insider plenty going on “behind-the-scenes” in regards to Longstaff contract talks.
