Danny Rose makes decision on his Newcastle United future

Danny Rose has all but made up his mind on where he wants to be playing next season.

Rose joined Newcastle United on loan from Tottenham Hotspur in January, and the defender has conceded that his “days are numbered” at his parent club.

And the 30-year-old, out of contract next summer, is keen to stay at St James’s Park.

Speaking in United’s digital matchday programme ahead of this afternoon’s Premier League home game against West Ham United, Rose said: “First and foremost, I’m playing for my future. I don’t think I need a bigger motivation than that.

“I’ve settled in very well. I love the lads and members of staff. I’m staying in a hotel, and, honestly, you wouldn’t believe the things that I have to say about how the hotel have treated me throughout all this.

“The lengths they’ve gone to, honestly – it’ been very surreal how nice people have been. They’ve tried everything to make sure my stay as been as smooth as possible.”

Jose Mourinho froze Rose out at Tottenham, and the England international added: “For me, I’d love to play for Newcastle for longer than what’s on my contract

“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that my days possibly are numbered at Spurs, and I’m playing for my future.

“There’s no bigger motivation for me. It’s probably been the first time in my career when I’ve been in this situation – never have I been down to less than one year on my contract, so it’s a new experience for me.”
