Tottenham Hotspur are reported to be ready to sell Danny Rose this summer in order to raise funds for new transfer targets.

Rose has revealed that he would be happy to remain at the club and receive the opportunity to play in front of the fans once more (Second Captains podcast).

The Guardian claim that Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho is ready to keep faith with Ben Davies at left-back while also promoting 18-year-old Dennis Cirkin to the first team with the academy graduate having been training with Mourinho’s squad for a number of months.

Rose has revealed in November of last year that chairman Daniel Levy has told him he will not be getting a new contract when his current one expires next summer, and signalled his intention to remain in North London to see out his deal rather than be sold against his will (Telegraph).

The 30-year-old spent the second half of the season on loan at Newcastle United with the Shields Gazette suggesting last month that Rose could be available for as little as £5million.

With a year left on his deal, it would seem likely that Daniel Levy would rather cash in on Rose than see him walk away as a free agent.
