Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has suggested that Danny Rose is likely to be the subject of interest from a number of clubs if he is to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
The England international claimed early last month that he believed that his days at Spurs were numbered (The Mirror). However, he has since admitted that he open to potentially staying in North London for the last year of his deal and have the opportunity to play in front of the Spurs fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium one more time (Second Captains podcast)
Rose spent the second half of last season on loan at Newcastle United and it was reported that the Magpies did not include an obligation or option to buy him in the agreement (Sky Sports).
Mills believes that there is a chance that Rose could return to Leeds following their return to the Premier League and could leave North London for a small fee if Daniel Levy is keen to tighten his purse strings.
He told Football Insider: “He could choose to sit and wait and be very very patient like we’ve seen other players do in the past.
“But as long as Tottenham are sensible and Daniel Levy’s purse pockets aren’t ridiculously tight like they usually are, they may well allow him to leave for a reasonably small fee to get him off the wage bill.
“If that’s the case he will be inundated with offers. I’m absolutely sure of that.
“He’s a Leeds lad, he could come back to Leeds.”
