Tottenham Hotspur have had a cracking summer.
Last season didn’t go at all to plan for the north London side as they fell way short of expectations by finishing sixth in the Premier League.
The hope was that this would prove to be a minor blip, and that’s why it was so crucial to get this summer right.
Jose Mourinho has come into the club and has made it his mission to build a squad that has both the mental and technical ability to win trophies and thrive in the Premier League.
It was always going to need a significant amount of investment for Spurs to get themselves back on track, but thankfully it seems that they’ve got things just right.
Tottenham completed six major signings this summer in the shape of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius.
With the domestic deadline not until October 16, there could be further additions with a central defender still a target.
But while these signings are great news for Mourinho, it will certainly have a knock-on effect to other members of the squad.
One player who could be impacted is Danny Rose.
Reports from the Daily Mail have claimed that the full-back is set to be excluded from the club’s 25-man Premier League squad and Europa League squad.
The former England international spent the second half of last term on loan with Newcastle United and was expected to move on over the course of the summer window.
With less than a year left on his contract it seems that his future will lie away from north London.
Match action is set to be limited under Mourinho and this could pave the way for a move to an EFL club as he looks to kickstart his career.
GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…
What a hugely frustrating situation this is for Danny Rose.
Described by Steve Bruce as a player of ‘real quality’, the full-back is at a pivotal point in his football career.
His time at Tottenham appears to be over – that much has been made blatantly obvious.
However the decision now is with Rose as to what he does next.
One option is hanging around with Spurs, picking up his pay cheque and and waiting to secure a move next summer.
But that would be a real waste of his talent.
Perhaps a loan deal to an EFL club would be the best option for all parties as it would give the former England defender a genuine platform to go out and enjoy his football once more while showing clubs that he is still capable of being a top defender.
