Tottenham sold one full back in Kieran Trippier already this summer while there has been major speculation surrounding Danny Rose’s future as well (The Sun).

The England international, who is currently the longest-serving first-team player in the squad, was linked with a move to Watford on transfer deadline day (Daily Mail) but the move failed to materialise in the end.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has since then insisted that the 29-year-old is an important part of his plans (Evening Standard).

Rose started against Aston Villa last Saturday and played the full 90 minutes but he didn’t have the greatest of displays, being partially at fault for the Villa goal.

Now a report on Football.London claims that Tottenham will not sell Rose this summer as Pochettino wishes to retain him due to Ben Davies’ and Ryan Sessegnon’s injury problems.

However, it is suggested that the defender could be moved on in January as he only has two years left on his contract with the club.

Spurs Web Opinion

We at Spurs Web believe it will be ideal if the club hung on to Rose for at least another season. While Sessegnon has a lot of potential, his talent is still raw and he can thus learn a lot from training with Rose. When fit and firing, the former Leeds man is still one of the best full-backs in the Premier League.
