Transfer News: Tottenham confirm Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga exits
According to information from the club’s official website, Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that two first-team stars Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga have left the club following the expiry of their contracts.
Rose has been with Tottenham since the summer of 2007 when he signed as a youngster from Leeds United. Having progressed through the ranks, the Englishman established himself as a key first-team member and one of the best left-backs in the Premier League.
However, Rose had been on the decline over the past couple of years due to injuries while matters weren’t helped by his falling out with managers Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho. Having spent the second half of the 2019/20 season out on loan at Newcastle United, the 30-year-old was frozen out of the first-team upon return and was made to train with the reserves, without even getting a first-team squad number.
As for Gazzaniga, he joined Spurs in 2017 from fellow Premier League club Southampton as backup for first-choice goalie Hugo Lloris. The Argentine largely spent his time at the club as an understudy to the club captain, having to suffice with a rare appearance here and there.
However, he was pushed further down the pecking order last summer following the arrival of Joe Hart, leading to his loan exit in January, when he joined Elche on a temporary basis. Back at the club, his contract, along with that of Rose’s was about to expire. And now, the club has confirmed that the duo will be leaving the club.
“The Club can confirm the departures of Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga following the conclusion of their contracts. We thank Danny and Paulo for their service and wish them well for the future.”
