Tottenham Hotspur had a busy January window, with both incoming and outgoing transfers at the North London club.

Spurs managed to bring in Steven Bergwijn from PSV and Gedson Fernandes on an 18-month loan from Benfica. They also managed to make their loan move for Giovani Lo Celso permanent from Real Betis.

The Lilywhites also sold Christian Eriksen to Inter Milan and loaned out Danny Rose and Kyle Walker-Peters to Newcastle and Southampton respectively.

Danny Rose has been a Tottenham player for over 12 years since joining from Leeds United back in 2007. He has since racked up 214 appearances and 10 goals for the Lilywhites (Wikipedia).

However, the introduction of Jose Mourinho as the new Spurs head coach did not appear to do Rose any favours. There were even some reports that there was a training ground bust-up between the two figures (Sun).

Rose has now revealed that his final three months at Spurs were difficult, hinting because he was not playing regularly.

He said (Mirror): “I am over the moon I am playing every week. But if I am brutally honest and critical of myself I am not playing at the level I want to be in terms of getting up and down the pitch and getting tight to my man.

“It has been a difficult few months with not playing at Tottenham. I am getting in the groove again and better every game and hope soon to be giving 8, 9, 10 performances.”
