The cost of Newcastle United's deal to sign Danny Rose on loan from Tottenham Hotspur has been revealed!
Chronicle Live reports that the Magpies are hoping to extend the England international's deal, having signed him from Spurs in the January transfer window, so that he can complete the season in the north east.
Of course, Project Restart will kick in later this month, with Sheffield United facing Aston Villa and Manchester City playing Arsenal on June 17.
And in the report, Chronicle Live have reported that the Magpies paid just £1.8 million to bring Rose into the club.
Since then, the left-back has made six appearances for Newcastle, once in the FA Cup and five times in the Premier League, per Transfermarkt.
He has only been on the winning side twice but the report claims that manager Steve Bruce is keen to sign him on a permanent basis.
Rose's contract at Spurs expires at the end of next season and it remains to be seen if he will be available for purchase this summer.
GIVEMESPORT'S Harry Sherlock says...
This shows exactly how far Rose fell down the pecking order after Jose Mourinho's arrival as Spurs boss.
He played just three times in the Premier League under the Portuguese and did not complete the 90 minutes once, being limited to a total of 100 minutes.
Clearly, Spurs weren't looking for the money when they allowed Rose to move north, given the measly fee that the Magpies paid.
It seems, thus, that Spurs would be willing to let the defender go if an offer is tabled, and Newcastle do seem keen.
A fresh start is definitely needed.
