The end of another season also marks the end of an era at Tottenham Hotspur, as the Club has confirmed they won't be re-signing some players who have been with them for a long time.

The Club confirmed through social media the departures of Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga following the conclusion of their contracts.

''We thank Danny and Paulo for their service and wish them well for the future.'' 

Rose

The end may have not been what he expected to be, but there's no doubt Danny Rose left it his all every time he was chosen by the manager.

Rose, who made his debut with the Spurs first team back in 2009 against Doncaster Rovers, last played for the 'Lilywhites' in 2020. 

Following a six-month loan-spell at Newcastle United last season, Rose was not granted a squad number for the season and was omitted from Tottenham's Premier League and Europa League squads, which made him ineligible for selection by the club in either competition.

This season, the 30 year-old played two games in the Premier League 2 with the Spurs u23 squad, recording one assist.

Academy player Elliot Thorpe thanked Rose publicly for his time at the club, and stated he was an example for the next generation of players at Tottenham.

''It’s sad that people will never know how much Danny Rose did for all of us young players,'' Thorpe wrote. ''The most professional and humble player i’ve ever met & a top guy that i could go to for any advice! Thank you Danny.''

Gazzaniga

When you're competing with Hugo Lloris for a spot in the starting XI is always going to be tough.

Following his arrival from Southampton in 2017, the Argentinian played 37 games across all competitions for Spurs, including five UEFA Champions League appearances in the group stage.

The Murphy-native did a good job as a back-up in his time at Hotspur Way, covering for Lloris whilst out injured for five months during the 2019 / 20 season.

Gazzaniga's few minutes on the pitch were taken away when Jose Mourinho decided to sign veteran goalkeeper Joe Hart, for the 2020 / 21 season.

In order to get playing time, the 29 year-old was sent on loan to La Liga's side Elche CF in January 2021, where he played eight games, kept two clean sheets, and helped the team stay in Spain's first division.

The Club also confirmed the departures of Development Squad players Enock Asante, Chay Cooper, Keenan Ferguson, George Marsh, Rodel Richards, Jack Roles, Aaron Skinner, Kazaiah Sterling and Shilow Tracey following the conclusion of their contracts.
