Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has claimed that Danny Rose would relish the opportunity to complete a move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

Rose has been in poor form this season and saw himself fall out of favour following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as head coach.

The full back left the club last month to join Newcastle on loan for the rest of the season and has admitted that he agreed to the move as he did not feel he could get opportunities under Jose Mourinho in North London (BBC Radio 5 Live).

The Sun reported at the weekend that Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly watch the England international closely during his loan spell on Tyneside as part of a potential approach for the defender in the summer.

Mills claimed that the 29-year-old could attract interest from the Ligue 1 giants if he performs well for the Magpies and insisted that the Rose would jump at the chance of joining the club.

When asked if the Spurs defender will be open to a move to PSG, Mills told Football Insider: “Well, why wouldn’t you? Champions League football, money, living in Paris – yeah, there are worse places to go, especially at that stage of his career.

“What he needs to do is just start playing well for Newcastle, get games, do as well as he possibly can and then suddenly lots of opportunities will no doubt open up for him.

“He won’t be that expensive come the end of the season, simply because he’ll be at that stage where there won’t be many players around, he’s got a year left on his contract and he’s desperate to leave. I think it’s a great opportunity for him.”

Spurs Web Opinion

For a guy who felt homesick in London and couldn’t wait to head back north, I am not sure he will feel particularly at home in Paris. Besides, PSG will probably want him as a back up rather than as first choice as Thomas Tuchel seems to be a fan of Juan Bernat.
