Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly changed his stance regarding Danny Rose. The Spurs boss was previously prepared to let the left-back leave before the end of the month. French sides PSG and Marseille were said to be keen on a loan move for the England international. However, as reported by the Telegraph, the defender has impressed Pochettino since his return from international duty and is now considered part of the first-team plans this season.
It is good news for Spurs and Rose can hopefully provide good competition at left-back with Welsh international Ben Davies.
But what does it mean for Kyle Walker-Peters?
The 21-year-old had an excellent pre-season and it was reported his form and progression was behind the decision to let Rose go. The full-back, who can play right or left, was believed to be considered ready for the step up to regular first-team football.
However, with Rose now set to leave, surely Walker-Peters should be sent out on loan this month.
With Serge Aurier ably supporting Kieran Trippier at right-back Waler-Peters finds himself out of first-team contention once again.
At 21, he needs to be playing regular first-team football and that is not looking likely at Spurs with Rose hanging around.
Tottenham should find him a loan club in the Football League or abroad before the end of the month.
