The future of Tottenham defender Danny Rose remains unclear heading into the final hours of Deadline Day 2.
After joining the club in 2009, the full-back played an integral part in Spurs’ rise under Mauricio Pochettino, helping the side to a second-placed finish in 2017 and the Champions League final two years later.
His club exploits earned him international recognition, as he picked up 29 caps for his country. However, he has not featured for England since last October, coinciding with his downturn in fortunes at Tottenham.
Danny Rose has transfer troubles
Rose made just three league appearances under Jose Mourinho last season, leading to a loan move to Newcastle in January. He has since returned to Spurs, but is still out of favour.
Having failed to feature in Tottenham’s squad this season, he is now deemed surplus to requirements. Numerous clubs, including Brighton and Genoa, were linked with his signature over the summer, but a move failed to materialise. He currently remains in north London, and that may still be the case at the end of this transfer window.
That is according to football.london, who claim that an exit plan is not in place at the moment. There has been rumoured interest from Middlesbrough and Derby this week, but an agreement is yet to be reached.
If Rose fails to secure a transfer, this is likely to leave him with an important decision to make. The 30-year-old’s contract runs out next summer, meaning that he could be left in the wilderness until then.
Another option could be to terminate his contract, making him a free agent alongside fellow internationals Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck.
As the clock ticks down until the window slams shut, Rose’s future continues to hang in the balance. It has been that way for months. Where will he end up? We might just have our answer soon.
