Football Insider have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are considering terminating Danny Rose’s contract as the club are keen to get him off their wage bill.
After not being named in the club’s Europa League squad, Rose found out on Tuesday that he had also failed to make the cut for Tottenham’s 25-man squad for the Premier League.
The experienced defender now looks set to be sidelined until the January transfer window.
Reports indicate that Watford made a deadline day approach for the 30-year-old last Friday but the defender was not particularly keen on joining the Hornets.
Football Insider now suggest that this has forced Tottenham to consider more drastic measures to get Rose off their payroll.
The club reportedly want to get the England international’s £70,000-a-week salary off their wage bill and are thus said to be considering giving him a pay-off to leave.
However, it is suggested that the pay-off offered by Spurs would still fall short of the £2.5m-plus that is remaining on Rose’s current deal, which runs out at the end of the season.

A pay-off was always going to be on the cards if Rose did not seal a move away during the transfer window. I still suspect both parties will wait until January to see if there would be more concrete interest in the left-back.
