Tottenham’s longest-serving player could well be one of those out of the door this summer, as the Daily Mail named Danny Rose on a shortlist of eight Spurs are looking to sell.
Rose has been at Tottenham for 12 years now, since joining from Leeds United way back in 2007. While he was largely unused for his first four seasons in North London, Rose has now clocked up 198 appearances and 10 goals for the Lilywhites (Wikipedia).
Danny was also a pivotal part of the team that reached the Champions League final for the first-ever time last season.
The 29-year-old surely has plenty of time left at the top of the game, but Spurs may be looking to move him along to make way for Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham (Mirror).
Fellow left-back, Ben Davies, has also just signed a new long-term deal with the club (Tottenham).
However, a key stat from WhoreScored now shows that Spurs simply win more games when Rose is in the team.
Between August 2018 and January 2019, when Rose was in the starting XI, Tottenham won 88.9% of games, compared to the 61.5% when he did not play.
Spurs Web Opinion:
In my opinion, Rose is still one of the very best in the Premier League and should be given a new three-year contract as a reward for his passion, top-class performances, and service over the past decade.
