Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose is likely to stay until January at least. According to a report by Football London, Rose will not be allowed to leave before the end of the European transfer window.
Rose’s future has been in question all summer. Ben Davies signed a new long-term contract and Tottenham signed Ryan Sessegnon on deadline day to add even more competition at left-back.
Sessegnon’s last-minute arrival nearly saw Rose complete a move to Watford. But Spurs rejected Watford’s £14m deadline day bid, according to The Independent. Rose stayed at Spurs but is still available for European clubs.
Ligue 1 champions PSG and Italian title-holders Juventus have both been linked with Rose this summer (The Sun). But it seems unlikely that the England international will depart until January at least.
Rose started the first game of the season as Tottenham beat Aston Villa 3-1. And with Davies and Sessegnon both coming back from injury, it is unlikely that Mauricio Pochettino will sanction an exit for Rose right now.
Rose has been a loyal servant for Tottenham through the Pochettino era. He is still able to perform at a high level and many fans actually prefer him to Davies. There seems to be no rush to move him on, especially with the other two options out injured.
Having both Davies and Rose also allows Sessegnon to take his time developing his game and ironing out any flaws. Pochettino is yet to decide whether Sessegnon is a left-back or a winger yet so having ample cover with Rose and Davies allows him to experiment with both positions.
