Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood believes that there is still potentially time for the club and Danny Rose to mend their relationship, amid reports that the defender could be on his way out of North London.

The England international’s name was absent from the list of squad numbers for this season announced by the club last week, with reports indicating that the 30-year-old only came to know that he had lost his number three shirt after being informed by a friend, who heard it on the news (The Athletic).

The left-back is surplus to requirements at Spurs and is said to be edging closer to a move to Genoa (Daily Mirror).

When asked about the England international’s rumoured exit from North London, Sherwood told talkSPORT (16/09/20 at 9:15 am): “I think Danny Rose is still their best left-back.

“He’s not got a shirt number. Something has got to give there and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be Jose and Daniel Levy giving anything away. So, Danny will probably leave the football club.

“Danny is different. He likes to be outspoken and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.

“Personally, I just think you have to manage it. Just be honest with them – there is still time, I think they can still turn him around. Danny is that type.”

However, when former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor asked if it was right that a player who served Tottenham for 13 years was being asked to train with the youngsters, Sherwood responded: “Well, that’s unrepairable if that’s happened.

“I think the bridges are probably burnt now. I don’t think Jose’s going anywhere anytime soon, so I think Danny’s going to have to seek pastures new.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Given the signings we have made so far, we can expect several departures from Spurs before the transfer window shuts. Rose is nailed on to leave since he only has a year left on his contract. Despite rumours of a move to Genoa, I still expect a Premier League club to snap him up before the deadline shuts.
