Michael Brown suggests that Tottenham outcast Danny Rose could snub a move to the Championship ahead of Friday’s domestic transfer deadline.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Spurs and Leeds midfielder believes the 30-year-old would rather seal a move abroad than drop down a division in England.
Rose remained Tottenham player after the international transfer window shut on Monday in England, although the domestic window, which allows Premier League sides to deal with EFL clubs, is open until 16 October.
There are also a number of international markets, such as Portugal and the USA, which remain open until later this month.
Brown believes that Rose would not want to move to the Championship and suggests he would rather wait for a Premier League or international move.
Brown told Football Insider: “When it doesn’t happen, when you know you’re not going to be part of the plans, it’s just going to have to be a bit of a wait. That’s what happens.
“He can still move to the Championship, but that would be some change for him if that were the case.”
Asked if he thought Rose would want to drop down a division, Brown said: “No. He wouldn’t want to do that, he’d want to play in the Premier League or an international league for sure.”
The England left-back spent the second half of last season out on loan at Newcastle United, where he made 13 appearances.
However, the Magpies signed Jamal Lewis from Norwich City this summer rather than turning Rose’s temporary stay permanent.
Tottenham have told Rose he is free to find a new club, either permanently or temporarily.
