Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills believes that Danny Rose has played his last game for Tottenham Hotspur.
The left-back joined Newcastle United last month on loan until the end of the season after finding first team football hard to come by in recent weeks.
The Mail previously reported that the English international was involved in a heated confrontation with head coach Jose Mourinho at Hotspur Way the day after Rose was left out of the squad which drew at Watford in January.
Rose admitted in a recent interview on BBC 5 Live that believes that he had not been given the same opportunities as other Spurs defenders to prove himself to the Portuguese who took over from Mauricio Pochettino in late November.
The 29-year-old made just only five appearances after Mourinho became manager on 20 November compared to the 16 he made under the Argentine earlier in the campaign (transfermarkt).
Rose will have just a year left on his contract when he returns to North London in the summer with Mills under no illusion that he will never wear the lilywhite of Tottenham again.
He told Football Insider when asked if Rose’s days at the Champions League finalists are numbered: “Oh yes, without a doubt.
“He’ll come back off this loan spell, he’ll have a year left (on his contract) so I don’t see him lasting an awful lot longer than that, that is for sure.
“He was quite vocal to say: ‘I don’t really want to be here any more, I don’t want to sign a deal. I’ve got no intention of staying beyond whenever it is,’ and that doesn’t endear you to a new manager in any way, shape or form.
“If you want to go, you might as well go now because your heart is clearly not in this football club. Danny Rose needs to go out and play, he wasn’t given a chance maybe but it might be partly his own fault.”
