Tottenham Hotspur are keen to offload Danny Rose during the current transfer window, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The England international not been part of Jose Mourinho’s plans this campaign after returning from a loan spell at Newcastle last season and has been turning out instead on occasion with Spurs Under-23’s side.

With Rose’s current contract set to expire in the summer, Sheth has speculated that Spurs could potentially take a leaf out of Arsenal’s book in what they did to get Mesut Ozil off their wage bill.

Ozil left the Gunners after seven and a half year stay where he had become a fringe figure at the Emirates to join Fenerbahce as a free agent.

Sheth has suggested that Spurs could look to pay up a portion of Rose’s outstanding salary to free him from his contract and allow him to move to his next club without the need of a transfer fee.

He told Sky Sports: “Spurs are keen to see him leave in this transfer window and he’s only got six months left on his contract.

“It’s a long-standing interested (Trabzonspor) and with what Arsenal have done with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Sokratis, mutually agreeing to cancel their contracts, I just wonder if that option is something Tottenham are thinking of doing.

“Maybe they are thinking about coming up with a deal where Spurs don’t pay the full amount of the remainder of the contract but Danny Rose gets something he will be satisfied with and becomes a free agent.”
