Ex-England defender tips Everton star for £40m move to Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur’s longest serving player, Danny Rose, has been at the club for a staggering 12 years, signing from Leeds way back in 2007.

Starting off as a left winger, Rose has gone on to carve himself a career as one of the Premier League’s best left-backs.

While the England man still has years left in the tank at 29-years-old, recent reports have linked Lucas Digne with a move to Tottenham to replace Danny (Mirror). The Mirror even claim that Everton would want Danny Rose plus cash in return.

Since signing from Barcelona for £18m a year ago (BBC), Digne has stood out as one of the Toffees highest and most consistent performers.

The 25-year-old still has four years left on his current Everton deal, so the Prem club would be able to charge a top price for him.

Ex-England star, Danny Mills, believes that the full-back is now worth around £40m, more than doubling in value over the space of 12 months.

He has also tipped Digne to make the switch to North London (Football Insider): “The merry-go-round has been given a big push by the Ndombele and Clarke deals, and I’m expecting Tottenham to be busy for the rest of the window.

“There is talk of Lucas Digne going to Tottenham to replace Danny Rose if he leaves.

“There could be something in that, and it’s one to keep an eye on as a late window deal.

“He has been brilliant. He’s now worth £40m, more than double what they paid.

“He is technically very good, excellent going forward and knows how to defend.

“He’s going to get even better as he gets more used to the Premier League.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Please someone !!! Find Danny Mills a job (Perhaps at a tire repair shop) His inane ravings cannot be considered punditry and should not be reported or repeated. Digne plus 35M for Rose might get some consideration; although not likely. This nonsense rattles around in Mills head as he seeks a spot as a sports writer. Give it up Danny. One needs to have a better understanding of the game in order to be a pundit.

  2. Who makes this stuff up,?was this a wet lunch to see who could come up with most unbelieveable crap.?
    As for Danny Mills, he would not have the slightest idea of what Everton are going to do,stick to the wet lunches mug.As for four years as a “qualified Journalist”you have a long way to.go if you are going to write up rubbish like this.
