Former Tottenham midfielder Michael Brown has become the latest pundit to weigh-in on Danny Rose’s situation at Spurs after he insisted that the defender has no choice but to wait until the January transfer window to play regular football again.

There was plenty of speculation over Rose’s future through the summer which even persisted into deadline day but the left-back ended up staying in North London.

The 30-year-old has been left out of Tottenham’s Europa League squad and was also not handed a squad number for the Premier League campaign.

Former Spurs striker Darren Bent has recently said that Rose can forget about getting back into the England fold if he accepts a move to the Championship.

Brown has now seconded Bent’s view and insisted that the defender has little choice but to wait it out until January.

He told Football Insider: “When it doesn’t happen, when you know you’re not going to be part of the plans, it’s just going to have to be a bit of a wait. That’s what happens.

“He can still move to the Championship, but that would be some change for him if that were the case.”

Asked if he thought Rose would consider dropping down to the second tier, Brown said: “No. He wouldn’t want to do that.

“He’d want to play in the Premier League or an international league for sure.”
