In 2007 17-year-old Danny Rose left Leeds United and signed for Tottenham Hotspur. Having spent over a decade at Tottenham, Rose is on the brink of leaving the club after not featuring for the first team for over a year.
Rose featured 214 times for Spurs during his career with 156 of those coming in the Premier League. He had the best start possible to his league career, scoring a wonderful goal in the North London Derby on his debut.
Dynamic, powerful, attacking left-back
During his career at Spurs, Rose joined five clubs on loan, appearing 68 times across competitions. He also joined the England National Team from the under 16s to the first team, appearing 88 times for his country.
He had a lot of great performances in his prime and on the opposite wing to Kyle Walker, the defenders were the best full-backs in the league during the 2016/17 season.
At one stage during his career, Rose said he couldn’t see himself playing anywhere but Spurs.
Things have however changed massively since then. Rose has fallen out of favour since the arrival of serial winner Jose Mourinho. With little to no game time, Rose requested to leave the club and joined Newcastle United on loan for the second part of the 2019/20 season.
When Rose returned to Spurs ahead of this season, he was dealt a huge blow when Mourinho failed to register him in the squad for league and cup competitions for the first half of the season.
With his contract ending in the summer, if he doesn’t find a club before the January transfer window ends, he will have to wait out the final few months before getting a move away from North London.
Rose was a quality player that brought years of quality performances for Spurs and his service for the team will be remembered.
