Leeds United backed to re-sign Tottenham outcast Danny Rose
Rose, 30, came through the youth ranks at Leeds United but never managed to make a first-team appearance for the Whites. Instead, he was snapped up by Tottenham Hotspur in 2007. After a few loan spells away, the Englishman became a regular at the club and rose to great heights, establishing himself as one of the top left-backs in the country in the last decade.
However, things have gone south for the defender over the past couple of seasons. Having lost his place to Ben Davies, Rose fell out with new manager Jose Mourinho last term and was shipped out on loan to Newcastle in January 2020.
Upon returning, the England international has been made to train with the reserves, with Tottenham not even giving him a kit number this term. Rose will be out of contract at the end of the current season, meaning he will be available on a free transfer.
And, Windass is of the opinion that a move to Leeds United before next season could prove to be a win-win for all parties involved.
“I could see that. If you were talking about a David O’Leary they would bring back players like Danny Rose and James Milner, but Bielsa is a tough nut to crack. But if you put Danny Rose in the team now at Leeds United, there would be no problems.
“He can get up and down, he’s a fit lad, and maybe he wants to go back to Yorkshire with his family and settle down. If you said to me Danny Rose is signing for Leeds United, I would say good signing, but will Bielsa want him? That’s the thing.”

Rose’s time at Tottenham is all but over. And like Windass says, a move to Leeds United could work out well for the veteran left-back as he looks to get his career back on track.
