England manager Gareth Southgate has admitted that Danny Rose told him back in August that he was likely to be frozen out of the first-team picture at Spurs this season.
The Daily Mail claims that if Rose does not agree to move to a Championship club before the October 16 EFL deadline, he is likely to be completely frozen out of the first-team picture by Jose Mourinho.
Given his lack of football recently, Rose has unsurprisingly failed to make the last couple of England squads.
Southgate confirmed to Dan Kilpatrick during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Three Lions’ friendly against Wales that the left-back knew what was coming.
Here’s what the journalist tweeted:
Southgate said yesterday that Rose knew back in August he would be frozen out at Spurs. "I spoke to him 2 months ago, he explained how things might play out in this period & that he might not be getting any football."

It is pretty surprising that no Premier League club decided to take a punt on Rose, as he could certainly be an asset for lower to midtable teams. However, I certainly cannot see him taking a step down to the Championship and so it is likely that he will stay until January and see what options open up for him.
