Former Hull City defender Alex Bruce believes that Danny Rose could turn down a move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer if the French giants make an approach for him.
Rose fell out of favour at Tottenham after the arrival of Jose Mourinho in November, with the Daily Mail even claiming that the England international had been involved in a training ground bust-up with the Spurs boss the day after the 1-1 draw at Watford in January.
While Mourinho denied the speculation of a rift with Rose, it did not come as much surprise when the full-back was loaned out to Newcastle prior to the winter window closing (Jonathan Veal).
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has already revealed his intention to sign the defender on a permanent basis at the end of the season (Chronicle Live).
However, Football Insider reported earlier this week that PSG were considering making a move for the 29-year-old.
Bruce, who is the son of the Magpies boss sees no reason why the England international would move to Paris having left Spurs to join Newcastle to be closer with his family in the north.
When asked about the speculation linking the Spurs star with a move to PSG, the former Hull defender told Football Insider: “I think one of the main reasons Danny Rose wanted to head back up to Newcastle was to be closer to his family in Leeds.
“I think it would kind of defeat the object him moving over to Paris, wouldn’t it? We’ll have to watch this space with that one.”

It is clear that Rose went to Newcastle to be closer with his family and it doesn’t seem to me like he still has the motivation to fight for his place at a club like PSG. Additionally, Alex Bruce is bound to have heard a thing or two about Rose’s plans seeing as it was his dad who brought the defender to Newcastle.
