Tottenham Hotspur will sell Danny Rose for knock-down price of £5m
Rose has been with Tottenham since the summer of 2007, having signed from the Leeds United youth setup. The English left-back grew into a first-team regular at the club as well as one of the best full-backs in the country.
However, issues with the management, form and fitness problems saw his standing at the club dip. Since Jose Mourinho took over the reins in November last year, the 29-year-old made just one Premier League start.
In January, Tottenham loaned Rose out to Newcastle United after making just 12 league appearances for us this term. Recently, the Magpies agreed an extension of the loan deal till the end of the season, with the initial contract expiring at the end of June.
And as per the latest report, Tottenham are now willing to offload him on a permanent basis, for a minimal transfer fee of just £5m. While it makes sense that Rose’s transfer valuation is likely to dip as he will enter the final year of his contract with Spurs, the mentioned figure is quite low for a player of his standing.
True that he has fallen out of favour under Mourinho. But the 29-year-old is a vastly experienced player, with close to 200 Premier League appearances. He also has 29 caps for the England national team. And given his age, he still has plenty left to offer at this level.

Given our current financial situation, player sales will be needed in order to generate funds to sign our transfer targets. Rose will almost certainly be among the stars offloaded, but knowing how Daniel Levy operates, we can expect him to extract a larger fee than the £5m being mentioned.
