Danny Rose has admitted his frustration at failing to hit top form at Newcastle United since arriving from Tottenham Hotspur on loan.
Rose is yet to make an impact at St. James' Park, having made six appearances for the club since his January move.
In an interview with The Chronicle, Rose said: "I feel great that I am getting a run of games. But I don't feel I am playing to my potential just yet. It is more frustrating for myself but I am over the moon that I am given a chance."
After being frozen out by Jose Mourinho at Spurs, Rose is clearly grateful for the opportunity being given to him by Steve Bruce, and he's looking to repay the manager's faith.
"Individually it is frustrating because I expect a lot more from myself," he added. "I know the manager expects a lot more from me. I am confident that in time I will get there."
Rose has made no secret about his desire to move back to the north of England to be closer to his family in Yorkshire. Making the move to Newcastle a permanent one could therefore be an appealing prospect to the full-back.
However, it's not just his club future which Rose is focussed on. In a recent interview with NUFC TV (via the Evening Express), he admitted he still has aspirations of getting back into the England squad for Euro 2020 (if it goes ahead, that is).
"I do feel confident that I’ll be selected, but I don’t think I’m just selected on performances. I do bring a lot to the camps and I know he [Gareth Southgate] realises that and I know he values that," he said.
It is now up to Rose to improve his performances and persuade Bruce and Southgate that he belongs in their future plans.
