Football.London’s Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold believes Danny Rose has played his final game for the club.
The left-back headed to Newcastle United on loan in the January transfer window after spending 13 years in north London.
The Telegraph reported at the time of his move that the Magpies have the option to make the move permanent in the summer should they so wish.
And Gold believes that the option will be exercised, calling time on Rose’s distinguished Spurs career.
Answering a question in a Q&A session, he said: “Danny Rose has been unhappy at Spurs, the club want him out and this Newcastle loan is the perfect solution.
“Steve Bruce has already indicated that he would look to bring in the left-back permanently in the summer if the loan goes well.
“Rose has made his opinions clear on leaving the club before his contract ends before but he added the caveat that that was as long as his manager wants him. Mourinho doesn’t.”
As Gold alludes to, Rose gave an interview to The London Evening Standard earlier this season insisting that he would run down his contract at Spurs, with his current deal set to expire in 2021.
However, the 29-year-old was barely used by Mourinho, who gave him just three Premier League appearances under his management, amounting to 100 minutes.
The die, it would appear, has been cast.
