The Athletic have reported that a short term extension for Danny Rose’s loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur has been reached between Newcastle and Tottenham.
The revised deal would extend Rose’s time at Newcastle until the first weekend in August, if Newcastle were to make the FA Cup Final.
The 29 year old has been a mainstay in Steve Bruce’s side since he arrived from London on a £1.8m loan deal, starting the majority of Newcastle’s matches at Left back or left wing back. His performances so far have been a mixed bag, but he is a solid piece to have on a left side of Newcastle’s defense that has struggled to replace the production of Jetro Willems.
Rose joins Lazaro as one of the few players who no longer have a bit of uncertainty around their eligibility as we near the Premier League restart.
There are a few players however who’s future with the club is still a bit unclear. Nabil Bentaleb is one such player, who is clearly not wanted by Schalke, but who’s loan deal technically expires on the 30th of June. It would be shocking if some sort of extension i not agreed to by the two clubs. With the departure of Ki, and the uncertainty of Matty Longstaff’s future Newcastle need all the help they can get in the midfield.
Andy Carroll and Jabier Manquillo are two players who have deals set to expire on the 30th of June. It’s understood that some sort of short term extension for both players is being worked on. It would be shocking if a deal was not reached for each of the players to at a minimum finish out the season. Manquillo has been the most productive right back this season, and Andy Carroll is tied for most assists this season.
Matty Longstaff’s future is still up in the air as both sides are still trying to work on a new deal. It is likely that Matty Longstaff get’s a new deal all together rather than just a short term extension The contract saga involving him has gone on far too long for the club to just extend the negotiation period into august and it not be insulting to the young player.
Jamie Sterry and Jack Colback’s times at Newcastle are likely to end when their contracts expire at the end of June. Neither player has been heavily involved in first team training this season and neither have trained with the club since training has resumed.
Newcastle, along with a host of other clubs, are waiting to hear back about the potential to alter their 25 man rosters to include healthy players or new players or for the 25 man roster to be expanded to include healthy players. Given the Premier League will be operating with 5 subs, it would make sense to expand the current rosters past the 25 man limit.
The first slate of Premier League matches kick off next Wednesday 19 June with Manchester City taking on Arsenal, and Sheffield United taking on Burnley. Newcastle’s first match of the restart will take place against Sheffield United the following Sunday 21 June.
