Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent has questioned the club’s openness to potentially sell Danny Rose.

The England international was left out of the club’s recent tour to the Far East when he was granted additional time off along with Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou to explore a potential departure from the Champions League finalists (Spurs official).

Rose is said to be valued at around £20million with French giants PSG monitoring his situation (The Sun).

Bent believes that Spurs should be doing everything in their power to keep the 29-year-old at the club with his former team-mate describing him as the best left-back in the country.

He told Football Insider: “Tottenham should be 100 per cent keeping Danny Rose,”

“He is the best left-back in this country when he is fully fit.

“There appears to be a breakdown in relations between him and the club. I don’t understand why they are not trying to keep him.

“It’s a strange one. There’s still question marks over Rose, Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld, but Tottenham should be keeping all of them.”


If Danny Rose were to leave the club for £20million it would be an absolute travesty considering the experience he brings to the side along with the impressive form he showed towards the end of last season.

Spurs have also been heavily linked with a move for Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon, although the Evening Standard claim that Rose’s future is not dependent on a move the 19-year-old.
