Former Manchester City defender Danny Mills believes that Tottenham Hotspur should pay up the contract of Danny Rose.
Rose is out of contract in North London next summer and has found himself frozen out of Jose Mourinho’s plans.
The 30-year-old was left out of Tottenham’s Premier League squad and also failed to make the cut in the 25-man Europa League side.
The left-back was linked with a move to Championship side Middlesbrough shortly before the EFL window closed earlier this month, but a move failed to materialise and he remained at Tottenham (Daily Mail).
Mills claims that it would be sensible for the club to get rid of Rose who could be a negative influence.
Rose spent the second half of last season on loan at Newcastle United but Steve Bruce decided against making the move a permanent one, with the former Leeds player having to wait until January to leave, unless he receives his payout.
He told Football Insider: “Never say never in football but it’s highly unlikely. I really don’t see that happening.
“I think his time is up I would say at Tottenham, it doesn’t look like there’s anywhere else for him to go in effect.
“It’s a shame but it does happen from time to time.
“If you’re not involved in the Premier League squad and you’ve not got long left to run on your deal then what is the point in keeping that player there?
“You can’t use him, it just becomes a pain as much as anything else.
“There has to come a point where you have to bite the bullet, do a deal, and move them on.
“Even if you have to give them all their money just do it the player is just going to sit there anyway and take it. You’ll be better off not having that negative influence around the place.”
