Steve has challenged Danny to prove Newcastle pulled off a January coup to land him as he attempts to fight his way into the England Euro 2020 team for finals.
The 29-year-old full-back reached at St James’ Park on loan for the rest of the season after the previous month having been left in slight doubt that he was extra to Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho’s desires.

Bruce was pleased to have taken a man who started both his country’s 4-0 qualifier win over Bulgaria in September and the 2-1 loss in the Czech Republic in October, and who has great hopes of a place in Gareth Southgate’s team this summer.
“I think it was common knowledge that things were not hunky-dory two or three weeks before. You are always monitoring a situation like that,” he said. There is probably one or two at every club, there is Jack Colback and Henri Saivet here, for example. You monitor it.”
What assisted extremely was Danny being a northern lad, and he desires to play. It became very informal. The player was extra to desires at Tottenham.
It was not as difficult as Inter Milan winger Valentino, where we have to beat off eight, or 10 clubs. Danny wanted to be here and that helped.
I hope that he is been one of the better ones of the transfer window. He wants to play. He wants to get in the England team. Milan winger has been no problem at all. He is fitted in well. He is trained well and worked hard.
Rose made his Newcastle entrance as a substitute in an accidental 0-0 home draw with Norwich on February 1 and will hope for an initial start at Spurs North London competitors Arsenal on Sunday.
To do so, he will have to move Matt, who has repeated his role as left wing-back since his reappearance from wound, although Rose’s appearance might see him return to a more familiar situation in midfield.
Asked about the dilemma, Bruce said: My job is to improve us. That is the hard job, but I would rather have that than nothing to pick, which has been the case for the past 10 or 12 weeks.
England Euro 2020 Three Lions prospects
England ensured a place as top seeds at Euro 2020 with a 4-0 victory in Kosovo in their final qualifying game, a result which sheds some extra light on what they can expect at next summer’s tournament.
Euro 2020 will be played through 12 congregation cities, including London, in the first European Championship to be theatrical in more than two republics.
So while we still do not know all the qualifiers or how all the groups will shape up, here is what we do know already.
Will England be seeded?
Yes, six of the 10 qualifying group winners will be in the top seeds for next summer’s tournament. Those seeding are largely decided by who finishes where in these qualifying groups.
The top six seeds will be the six group winners who earn the most points excluding results against sixth-place teams in larger groups, with goal difference used if teams are level on points.
Six of the other nine cluster leaders have released more points than England, so the Three Lions are definite to be seeded.
There is a warning, as there always is with UEFA contests, that teams may be moved into alternative seeding pot. That might happen to escape two host cities in the same group being in the same shoot but is implausible to affect England.
Whom might England face in Group D?
Although the draw has not occupied place so far, we know for sure that England will be in Group D at the Euros.
If Scotland, who also hosts some Euro 2020 games, victories next year’s Nations League Path C play-offs, they will also be in the group with England.
As things stand, those play-off teams are Scotland, Norway, Serbia and one of Bulgaria, Israel or Romania, though that might change.
If Romania were moved to another play-off to avoid two host cities being up for one spot, which appears likely, then the winner of those play-offs would be in England’s group.
The other two teams in the group will be decided in the Euro 2020 draw on Saturday, 30 November in Bucharest. But the fourth team will not be known until March’s play-off.
England knows they will not be in a group with Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain, Germany or the other six host countries.
But they might finish up in the same group as World Cup finalists France or Croatia, or European champions Portugal, all of whom are probable to be second seeds. Switzerland and the Czech Republic are possibly third-seed rivals.
Who else has qualified for Euro 2020?
Austria, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and Ukraine have also reserved their places.
Two more places will be decided from this block of finalists, with Wales still in an argument, with the other four upcoming from the Euro 2020 play-offs in March.
