The Telegraph are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur will allow Danny Rose to leave the club this summer but that he will not be joining Newcastle United.

Rose returned to Tottenham after spending the second half of last season on loan at the Magpies.

The left-back recently admitted that there is nothing more he would love than to turn out for Tottenham one more time and say a proper goodbye to the fans (Second Captains podcast).

However, The Telegraph claim that the 30-year-old is not in Jose Mourinho’s plans and the Spurs boss is ready to move him on as due to the fact that he is happy with his options at left-back.

It is said that Ben Davies will continue to be the first-choice next season, with Mourinho ready to use Ryan Sessegnon and Dennis Cirkin as the Welshman’s understudies.

Rose, who has one year left on his contract with the North Londoners is said to be keen on winning back his place in the England squad ahead of the Euros next summer and Spurs are ready to sell him for a reduced fee.

The report suggests however, that Newcastle will not make an attempt to sign the left-back on a permanent basis, with Steve Bruce looking at other options.

Wolves are suggested as a possible destination for Rose, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side said to be looking for a left-back with Jonny recovering from a serious knee injury.

Brighton are mentioned as another potential destination for the former Leeds player, with the Seagulls expected to be in the market should they lose Bernardo.

At 30 years of age, Rose should still have at least a couple of years left at the top level if he can stay injury-free. So, there is potentially a bargain transfer to be had for several Premier League clubs, who he would instantly improve. I suspect we will start to see more clubs show interest in the left-back towards the end of the window.
