Rose set to snub Paris Saint-Germain to stay at Tottenham

Danny Rose is set to snub advances from Paris Saint-Germain in order to remain at Tottenham Hotspur, The Telegraph reports.

What’s the word?

A player who has been surrounded by speculation this summer, it appears the lengthy saga concerning Danny Rose is set to finally come to a close – and it will not see the England international leave Tottenham Hotspur.

The Telegraph¬†states Rose is set to stay at Spurs after impressing Mauricio Pochettino, impressing in training during the past week and making his first appearance of the season in Monday’s 3-0 victory over Manchester United.

That has seen the 28-year-old handed the opportunity to rejuvenate his career with the Lilywhites and he is now set to fight Kyle Walker-Peters and Ben Davies for regular opportunities in the first-team, although the situation could be revisited in January.

Good for Spurs?

Eyebrows will have certainly been raised by suggestions that Rose was surplus to requirements in the eyes of Pochettino, as the experienced defender entered the new campaign in fine form after playing a pivotal role in England’s charge to the World Cup semi-finals.

While Walker-Peters and Davies are both capable options, Rose’s experience could prove to be vital for the Lilywhites this season – especially when the Champions League returns next month and Spurs are forced to fight on all fronts.

A decision to allow Rose to leave could have certainly come back to haunt Spurs and, although the Doncaster-born defender now faces a fight to secure regular opportunities at White Hart Lane, the right decision has been made.
