Tottenham Hotspur full back Danny Rose is currently the longest-serving first-team player at the club, discounting the players who came through the Spurs youth academy.

The 29-year-old moved to Spurs from Leeds United back in 2007 and has experienced multiple highs and lows during his time at the club.

However, now it looks like his time at the club is set to come to an end after 12 years as the England international has been left out of the Spurs squad traveling to Singapore and Shanghai for their pre-season tour as he explores a move away from the club (Sky Sports).

According to The Daily Express, Sky Sports presenter Jim White has revealed the details of text message conversation he had with Danny Rose’s father Nigel Rose, on Thursday.

White claims that Nigel Rose suggested that he would like his son to move back to Leeds this summer.

The Express quotes White as saying, “What I can tell you, and it’s quite amusing, I know Nigel Rose, Danny’s dad quite well.

“Tongue-in-cheek he got in touch with me today and said: ‘Jim I’d love for him to go back to Leeds United, the home of the beautiful game’.

“I’m not too sure that’s going to happen Nigel but you tickled me with that this morning.”

Danny Rose has made it clear in the past that he would like to move back North. However, in this case, Nigel Rose was clearly half-joking as the possibility of Rose moving down to the Championship is extremely slim. His performances in the second half of last season showed that he is still more than good enough for Premier League football.
