Tottenham Hotspur were extremely busy on deadline day as they sealed deals to bring Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso to the club while Cameron Carter-Vickers was loaned out to Stoke City and Josh Onomah was sold to Fulham as a part of the Sessegnon transfer.
Besides these, one other deal also almost went through, only to fall through at the last moment – Danny Rose to Watford.
Reports yesterday indicated that the Tottenham full back was at the Watford training ground yesterday near to the 5pm transfer deadline but the move failed to materialise as Spurs rejected Hornets’ approach (Daily Mail’s Sami Mokbel).
Tottenham legend Graham Roberts has now given his take on Rose’s rumoured transfer to Watford yesterday.
The former defender reacted to news that Watford had made a late bid of £14 million but claiming that it was nowhere near enough to sign the England international (Independent).
Roberts insisted that Rose was worth around £30-40 million.

We are delighted that Rose wasn’t sold yesterday and hope that the club will keep hold off him for at least another season as Sessegnon still needs time to mature. However, given his age, the full-back will likely be on his way out if Spurs receive a bid around £20 million.
