Steve Bruce keen for Newcastle United to sign Premier League 'class act'
Bruce is looking to sign a left-back on loan after losing Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett to season-ending injuries last week.
And Newcastle – who are set to sign Inter Milan winger Valentino Lazaro on a season-long loan – have been linked with Rose, who has rowed with Jose Mourinho his manager.
Tottenham, however, are looking to sell the 29-year-old, while United are only interested in taking a left-back on loan.
Speaking ahead of Newcastle’s FA Cup tie against Oxford United at St James's Park tomorrow, head coach Bruce said: “It would be wrong for me to sit and talk about other people’s players. He (Rose) is a quality player and a class act, the kid. Whether it’s possible, who knows.”
