Danny Rose jokes he should sack his agent on his own transfer to Newcastle which was completed earlier this week a day before the January Deadline Day.
The move comes after Jetro Willems picked up an unfortunate season-ending injury against Chelsea, paving the way for Rose to join the club from Tottenham.
"I lived in London for 13 years and only found one good chip shop" ?

The defender revealed that he was straight on the phone to his agent in his search for regular starts.
Rose told Sky Sports: “I was watching Newcastle play Chelsea and I saw the injury that Jetro had and I got on the phone to my agent and said ‘I want to go there’.
“It probably took a week to ten days to get there but now I’m here. I think I need to sack him don’t I?
“It was just by coincidence and obviously it’s unfortunate that somebody’s had to get injured but I’m grateful that I’m here and looking forward to playing games now.”
The Yorkshire born lad revealed he’s missed playing up north while living in London and claimed he could only find one decent chippy in the capital.
He added: “The best chippy is in Doncaster where I’m from – I was in London for 13 years and I think I found one good chip shop.
“I’m going to make the most of it now I’m back up north and I’m looking forward to enjoying life here.
“I’m over the moon, looking forward to being involved and feeling part of a squad again.
“Making my debut in front of 50,000 fans it will be very special and something I’m looking forward to.”
Newcastle introduced loan signings Rose and Valentino Lazaro in the second half of what turned out to be a bore draw at St James’ Park on Saturday.
The day ended with the Magpies climbing up to 10th in the Premier League table, whilst the Canaries remain bottom of the division, seven points from safety.
