Tottenham Hotspur outcast Danny Rose has not been training with the club’s first-team and it appears he is not in Jose Mourinho’s plans for the upcoming season.
Recent reports have emerged suggesting that Championship side Middlesbrough could be the team to take Rose away from Spurs.
However, the Northern Echo reported yesterday that this was not the case as the finances involved were simply not viable for the Teessiders.
Football.London backs up that report, suggesting there is currently no imminent exit looming for the England international left-back.
But their report goes even further, suggesting what might happen to Rose should Tottenham fail to find him a Championship loan.
It is suggested that one possibility would be Tottenham following in the lead of West Ham’s treatment of Jack Wilshere and releasing him from the final few months of his contract.
Rose only has nine months left on his deal and a mutual termination could be agreed between player and club if it proves beneficial to both parties.
However, given Rose’s previously resolute stance and headstrong attitude, it looks just as likely that he would decide to stick it out, see out the remaining months of his contract, and find a new team on a Bosman deal for next summer.
