Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho provides an update on Danny Rose future
Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the game against Sheffield United (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has provided an update on the future of out-of-favour defender Danny Rose.
Rose has been with Tottenham since 2007, having joined from Leeds United. Having been a first-team regular for the most part of the last decade, the Englishman has fallen out of favour ever since Jose Mourinho took over the reins.
Rose spent the second half of the last season away on loan at Newcastle United. Having returned to the club at the end of the season, the England international has been frozen out of the first-team by the manager.
Indeed, the left-back has been left out of Tottenham’s Premier League and Europa League squads. Furthermore, the 30-year-old wasn’t given a shirt number either this season. He has been training with the reserves and has featured twice in the Premier League 2 for them.
With his contract running out at the end of the season, Tottenham are believed to be open to offers for the former Leeds man this month. Amid interest from Premier League strugglers West Bromwich Albion, Mourinho was asked whether Rose would leave the club, to which the manager replied:
“I don’t know. Honestly, I don’t know. Working with the U23s and playing sometimes with them and well, the couple of times I watched him. Good contribution for the kids’ team and for the kids’ development, but I don’t know what’s going to happen in the market.”

Rose is clearly not part of the plans at Tottenham. With his deal running out at the end of the season, this window provides the club with the last chance to bring in some funds from his sale. A departure would be the best outcome for both parties involved.
