Danny Mills is adamant that “all bridges have been burnt” for Danny Rose at Spurs and tipped the Newcastle United loanee to complete a permanent exit this summer.
The former Leeds and Manchester City right-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, claimed that 30-year-old “had issues with the club” and a return is therefore highly unlikely.
Rose is currently on loan at Newcastle United where he has made 11 appearances since he joined in January.
Football Insider understands that the Magpies are ready to offer £5million for the England international and are confident of prising him from Spurs.
However, Mills suggested that a permanent exit from the club was an inevitability.
“I cannot see him going back to Tottenham,” he told Football Insider.
“Clearly he had issues with the football club and I am pretty sure they will look to move him on as soon as possible.
“Still an England player and there is every chance he could go to the Euros next year.
“A fabulous player but it seems like all bridges have been burnt at Tottenham. Not necessarily with Mourinho but with the club itself and for that reason I think it is very, very unlikely that he returns.”
Steve Bruce, when speaking on a permanent move for Rose, said: “We’re trying to put plans in place, and we’ll see what the situation is in the summer.
“He’s done very well for us – we’re pleased with him – and I’m sure there’ll be conversations to have.”
