Leeds United will benefit from the sale of one of their former academy players should Danny Rose leave north London this transfer window, by way of a 10% sell-on contract clause added when Rose signed in 2007 (Daily Star).

PSG and Juventus are said to be fighting it out for a £20m deal for Rose this summer, meaning that Leeds United would receive £2m extra for their former left-back (Sun).

This comes after Spurs have already handed the Championship club £10m this summer for the signing of Jack Clarke (BBC).

Brought to White Hart Lane by manager Martin Jol for £1m, aged 17 (BBC), Rose’s career at Tottenham has been a mixture of lows and highs, both on and off the playing field.

Loan spells at Watford, Peterborough United, Bristol City and Sunderland (soccerbase.com) set Rose up for his iconic Tottenham Premier League debut, an unforgettable performance with a memorable long-range strike in the North London Derby in April 2010.

Rose went on to be part of a highly rated full-back partnership with Kyle Walker, a vital part of manager Mauricio Pochettino’s footballing philosophy.

Rose was not part of the 2019 International Champions Cup squad and was one of three current squad members to be given “…additional time off in order to explore prospective opportunities with other clubs” (THFC Official).

Spurs Web Opinion:

Wherever Rose ends up, I suspect he will leave with the blessing of most Tottenham fans, no matter where he decides to go (besides the obvious).
