Danny Rose nearly left Tottenham for Watford over the summer before the deal collapsed, but the 29-year-old will be sold in January if The Times are to be believed. Rose has reportedly been ‘made available’ for sale as Mauricio Pochettino wants to weedle out the players contributing to a ‘negtative atmosphere’ in the camp – Serge Aurier is the other defender with his head in the proverbial guillotine.

The England international is still commanding a starting place at left-back, however, making eight appearances in all competitions this season, so it’s somewhat surprising that Pochettino wants to offload him. Spurs do have Ben Davies & Ryan Sessegnon waiting in the wings, but Rose is clearly the best defender in his manager’s eyes.

It remains to be seen what club he could join. Watford are no longer an attractive proposition as they’re currently bottom of the Premier League with just three points from a possible 24, Manchester United don’t appear keen on Rose any more, and Newcastle United’s struggles might put them out of the running.

Schalke, Paris Saint-Germain and Wolverhampton Wanderers were linked over the summer, but time will tell if they return in January.

The 29-year-old still has two years remaining on his contract, but he finds himself on a list of unwanted players at Tottenham (Serge Aurier, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama, Christian Eriksen) which suggests he’ll be moved on.

  • I don’t have an issue with Spurs selling a number of players, but there has to be a notion of replacing with players equal to, or hopefully better than the ones we are releasing. And it here that Spurs are arguably failing to address properly, and the major contributing factor to the mess we presently find ourselves in! The sale of Trippier for example typifies this, and if you consider that the overall level of transfer activity has been vastly underwhelming for a considerable time now and not just the last to years I think it is possible to interpret how the slow but cumulative effect of these shortcomings has resulted in damaging the club at this present point. Levy cannot continue to address the same issues in such poor regards if Tottenham are to succeed with trophies as a top club!
