Tottenham star urged to make January switch to Premier League strugglers

Darren Bent urges Danny Rose to leave Tottenham and join West Bromwich Albion on loan

Speaking to Football Insider (h/t Football.london), Darren Bent has urged Danny Rose to swap Tottenham Hotspur for West Bromwich Albion in the January transfer window.

The 30-year-old is the longest-serving player in the current Spurs squad. He has been at Tottenham since 2007 and was amongst the best in his position at a point in time. The same cannot be said now as he has fallen completely out of favour under Jose Mourinho.

The defender is yet to make a single senior appearance for Tottenham this season. His standing within the team can be gauged by the fact that he was omitted from both the club’s Premier League and Europa League squads.

The player’s future at the club looks to be over. Rose was not handed a squad number after returning from Newcastle United on loan. It does not appear as if he features in Mourinho’s plans.

With his contract expiring in the summer, it appears to be a matter of when he will leave rather than if. Bent believes Rose is too good of a player to be sidelined. He has backed the 30-year-old to make the switch to the Hawthorns.

“Danny Rose, a player who is too good of a player not to be playing, he’s got to be playing football.”

An audition!

Even if Rose is not too thrilled to move to the Hawthorns, he could use his time there as an audition to alert potential suitors to his availability. Given his standing in North London, he will hardly get that opportunity if he stays on.

“If he plays from now until the summer really, really well, that will open up doors more for him in the summer and more takers, even if he doesn’t want to stay at West Brom. It’s about him playing on the pitch.”

Once considered a key player, Rose is now firmly behind the likes of Sergio Reguilon and Ben Davies in the Spurs pecking order. He is not a player we will miss and it will serve all sides well if he decides to move on.

West Brom are in the thick of a relegation fight and Rose has an excellent opportunity to stand out and catch the eye. Whether he chooses to do so remains to be seen. He has so far made 214 appearances for Tottenham, scoring 10 goals and 29 assists. (h/t Transfermarkt)
