Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose has travelled to Watford’s training ground, per The Athletic’s Watford correspondent Adam Leventhal.
Spurs have reportedly concluded a deal to sign Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham on transfer deadline day.
And Leventhal has now reported that Rose is at on the premises at the Hornets’ training facility.
The England left-back was omitted from the club’s squad for their pre-season tour of Asia in order to explore the opportunity of a move away.
And it now appears that the Premier League club have registered their interest in signing him.
Leventhal wrote on The Athletic’s transfer blog (August 8th, 15:44): “Understand Danny Rose is at TG. That’s all I know at the minute, but I’m guessing it’s not to reminisce about his 2009 loan spell. ”
Sky Sports News, however, have claimed that Spurs have rejected a bid for Rose from the Hornets, per their live blog (16:03).

It always felt as though Sessegnon needed to sign for this to happen.
Sources at the club have always maintained that the 19-year-old is seen as the long-term replacement to Rose and that the club wanted to sell the latter before buying the former.
It appears that the opposite has happened, with Sessegnon arriving before Rose’s departure but, with time tight, the dominos may have fallen, with the knock-on effect of the teenager’s arrival being the 29-year-old’s departure.
He has been with the club since 2007, making a total of 198 first-team appearances, but it now looks as though he could be close to ending his 12-year association with the north London outfit.
Watford may simply have to table another offer to make it happen.
