Medical scheduled & fee agreed: Newcastle close in on two left footer signings - Sources
Newcastle United are closing in on the signing of Tottenham defender Danny Rose and are also working to land the marquee capture of Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen by tomorrow night, Football Insider has learned.
The north-east giants have had a loan bid for Rose, 29, accepted by Spurs and he is set to head over today to undergo a medical and join for the rest of the season.
A Newcastle source has told Football Insider that the club are hopeful of bringing in a second left footer after submitting a bid for Bowen to Hull worth £20million including add-ons.
Details of the offer for the prolific attacker were revealed by Football Insider yesterday evening as United work against the clock to reinforce Steve Bruce’s squad.
At the very least, Newcastle are set to finalise a deal for Rose as they look to solve their left-sided defensive problem.
The England international international went public back in November to reveal that Spurs wanted him gone but he had no intention of leaving before his contract expires in the summer of 2021.
