According to a report by The Daily Mail, Danny Rose will not play any part in the Tottenham first-team until he potentially leaves the club during the January transfer window.

There was plenty of speculation over the left-back’s future over the last two months, including rumours of deadline day interest from Porto (The Guardian’s Ed Aarons) but he ended up staying at Spurs beyond Monday’s transfer deadline.

The Athletic revealed that Spurs tried in vain to ship out both him and Paulo Gazzaniga on deadline day and that both players are now expected to stay until January as they are unlikely to consider stepping down to a Championship club.

New Tottenham signing Sergio Reguilon picked up a knock during Spain’s international friendly against Portugal last night but there is no confirmation on how serious the injury is as of yet.

However, even if the 23-year-old remains out for an extended period, it looks like Jose Mourinho will not bring Rose back into the first-team fold.

The England international has already been left out of Tottenham’s Europa League group stage squad and The Mail claims that he is unlikely to be recalled the Premier League squad either.

If he does not join a Championship club before the October 16 deadline, it is said that he stands ‘no chance’ of being re-integrated into the first team until January.

Spurs Web Opinion

The treatment handed to Danny Rose by the club seems extremely harsh after the many years of fantastic service that he has given the club but this situation seems to be entirely of Rose’s own making. In hindsight, I am sure he would have handled the situation differently and fought for his place in Mourinho’s side, rather than taking the confrontational approach he did with the Spurs boss about his lack of game time.
