Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson has called on the club to offer Danny Rose a deal if his contract is terminated by Tottenham Hotspur.
Rose failed to secure a move away from the north London club this summer and is has been left out of Jose Mourinho’s 25-man squad for the Premier League season. With the defender’s future up for debate, Spurs have reportedly been exploring the potential of the 30-year-old terminating his current contract.
Aside from those claims, Football Insider reported that the defender is demanding that the remainder of his contract (eight months) is paid out in full. Having spent a part of last season on loan with Newcastle United, Rose is likely to receive multiple offers if he becomes a free agent.
What has Robinson said about a potential move for Rose?
“The contract situation will be resolved eventually and I would just like to see Danny Rose get out there and play football,” he told Football Insider.
“I would take him at Leeds because obviously, there has been a number of defensive injuries.
“Leeds have had Stuart Dallas and Alioski playing there but to have someone like Danny Rose as part of the squad, on a free transfer, that would be a no brainer for anyone.”
Does Danny Rose still have enough quality?
At the age of 30, full-back Rose still has time to make his mark in the Premier League, but he is badly in need of regular football after being frozen out by Mourinho at Spurs.
Experience with England and with Spurs makes it easy to see why Robinson may regard Rose as potentially a ‘good signing’, while the player may want a fresh start elsewhere given his current purgatory.
