Tottenham are ready to offload Danny Rose for a cut-price fee of just £5m this summer, according to Football Insider.
The England international’s contract is set to expire next year and with a challenging economic forecast predicted due to COVID-19, it is thought Spurs will look to offload the defender to free up funds.
Rose has made five appearances for us since his loan-deal move back January, but hasn’t exactly set the world alight – despite his performances improving slightly before the break.
Bruce has already talked up the idea of signing him permanently, but his performances from now until the end of the season may have to improve if fans are going to buy into idea of signing him full-time – even on the cheap.
His comments about how he “would love to play for Leicester” frustrated a few Toon fans a short while back, but they were taken slightly out of context as he was simply levelling praise towards the job Brendan Rodgers has done there.
He looked out of shape in our game against Middlesbrough last weekend, with a picture on social media proving it’s not just myself who has put on some serious weight during this pandemic – so do we question his commitment?
One thing that has happened to Rose in recent times is his struggles with the national team. He has fallen way behind in the pecking order, with Ben Chilwell, Luke Shaw, and uncapped Arsenal prospect Bukayo Saka seen as better options for Gareth Southgate’s side.
For £5m he’d still be a steal, as at 29-years-old, he can clearly still cut it in the top flight for a good while yet. Left-back is hardly a position we have a plethora of talent in to choose from, so for that sort of money I think he would still be a sensible and reliable transfer considering how volatile the market can be.
