According to a report by talkSPORT, Danny Rose’s proposed move to Trabzonspor has collapsed due to COVID-19 quarantine rules.

Rose has not made a single competitive first-team appearance since returning to Tottenham in the summer after the conclusion of his loan spell at Newcastle United.

It was reported earlier this month that Spurs were willing to terminate the defender’s contract, which still has six months left to run and allow him to leave on a free transfer.

Reports from Turkey claimed that Trabzonspor had reached an agreement with the England international, who was set to sign a three and a half year contract with the club.

It was suggested that the 30-year-old was set to travel to Turkey this weekend to finalise his move.

However, talkSPORT have since claimed that Trabzonspor have admitted it would be ‘very difficult’ to sign the Tottenham star before Monday’s transfer deadline due to the COVID-19 quarantine rules.

Club president Ahmet Agaoglu is quoted as saying: “The transfer is very difficult after this time. It will cost seven days.

“Let’s make the transfers we can do [right now].”

Spurs Web Opinion

One would think the COVID-19 quarantine rules would not be an issue at the top-flight level, given that the players are subject to multiple tests each week. Even if there were strict restrictions, Trabzonspor should have at least been aware of those before negotiating a deal for the Spurs star.
