Tottenham Hotspur tipped to offload star as EFL interest builds

It's been all change at Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Last season was a bit of a disaster for the north London club after matters on the pitch seemingly had a big impact on it.

While Jose Mourinho was brought in to add new direction, the best he could manage was a top six finish in a campaign where expectations dictated that they would finish in the top four.

Given where they were last Autumn a spot in this season's Europa League was seen as a relative success, but that shouldn't detract from where expectations will be this term.

As a result Tottenham have worked tireless to improve their squad with the likes of Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale among the six players to join the club this summer.

But while players have come in, it seems that some will need to move on.

Danny Rose is one of the key contenders to leave the club before Friday's domestic transfer deadline.

The former England international has less than a year remaining on his contract in north London, and with first team opportunities non-existent, former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson believes that his days under Mourinho are numbered.

Speaking to Football Insider, Robinson said: “The writing is on the wall for Danny Rose given that he has not got a squad number this season.

“I think he will see him move on and I am surprised that Newcastle did not sign him this summer because he did quite well there last season.

“Wherever he goes, he will do well. He is a top player, I like him, I rate him. He just does not fit in Jose’s plans and Jose does not want him around.

“I think he will move before the deadline, whether that be to Middlesbrough or wherever it may be. He is definitely one that will be leaving.”

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

It seems almost inevitable that Danny Rose will move on.

The full-back has been way down the pecking order at Tottenham Hotspur for some time - particularly since Jose Mourinho took charge of the club.

Since then he's spent time on loan with Newcastle United, but now finds himself at a crossroads once more.

Rose is at a point in his career where he needs to be playing regular first team football.

I'm sure that many would agree that the former Leeds man is capable of playing in the Premier League, but with that not a viable option at this point it seems that a move to the Championship is on the cards.

If he can thrive at a club such as Middlesbrough then it could do him the world of good and help him prepare for the next step of his career.
