Transfer deadline day summer 2019: The deals done so far

Danny Rose has said it is “no secret” that he may leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The 28-year-old was one of the star’s of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad this season, making 37 appearances in all competitions and starting every game from the quarter-finals onwards in Spurs’ Champions League run.

However, speaking after England defeated Switzerland on penalties in the Nations League third-place play-off, Rose stoked rumours about his future, citing the club’s policy of moving on older players as a factor.

“I don’t know what the future holds now. I’m looking forward to a break. If I’m back at Tottenham next season, great, if I’m not – great. I’ll just have to wait and see,” he told Sky Sports News.

“It’s not about regular first-team football. I know my age and I know how the club’s run in terms of if you get to a certain age they might look to ship you on.

“It has been no secret that my name has been mentioned quite a few times in terms of players moving on and I’ll be just sitting tight over the next few weeks and just seeing what happens. Either way I’m prepared for whatever happens.

Rose’s future at Tottenham iis unclear after his comments

“Last season I didn’t play as much as I wanted. This season I’ve played quite a bit, it’s been really good.”

Kieran Trippier has also been linked with a move away from North London, while Toby Alderweireld can be purchased for a cut-price £25m this summer, meaning Spurs may be forced to dramatically overhaul their defence.
