Done Deal: Released Tottenham star signs for Premier League rivals



Done Deal: Released Tottenham star Danny Rose signs for Watford

As confirmed by The Athletic, Danny Rose, who was released by Tottenham at the end of the season, has signed for Watford on a two-year contract.

Tottenham confirmed last month that Rose would be released by the club when his contract expires at the end of June, making the 30-year-old a free agent heading into the summer.

And now, it has been confirmed that the veteran English defender has signed for the Hornets, who have made a swift return to the top-flight after a season in the EFL Championship.

Rose had been with Tottenham since the summer of 2007 when he signed as a teenager from Leeds United. Having grown into a first-team regular at the club, the 30-year-old, in his peak, was one of the best left-backs in the country.

However, fitness issues and fallouts with managers Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho meant that Rose had become an overlooked entity at Tottenham during the past couple of seasons. Indeed, the England defender was shipped out on loan to Newcastle United for the second half of the 2019/20 season.

Upon returning, the veteran was made to train with the reserves for the entirety of the 2020/21 season and wasn’t even given a first-team kit number. Having been completely frozen out, Rose did not make a single appearance for the senior team in the season gone by but did feature a few times for the reserves.

This will be Rose’s second stint at Watford, with him having spent a short time on loan at Vicarage Road during the early phase of his career back in 2008/09. Having not played at this level for a year, it will be interesting to see how he fares with his new club. We wish the 30-year-old all the best for his next journey!
