Noel Whelan has suggested that full-back Danny Rose could stay at Tottenham this season despite being unwanted by Jose Mourinho.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Jason Jones, the former Leeds forward also conceded that the England international will have clubs looking at him.
The 30-year-old does not seem to have a future at Spurs after being shipped out to Newcastle United on loan for the second-half of the season.
However, as revealed by Football Insider, the Magpies are now unlikely to make a permanent move for Rose this summer.
Asked by Football Insider what Rose’s next step could be, Whelan said: “Danny Rose seems to be quite a strong character, he speaks his mind.
“It’s not worked out at Tottenham, and that can be the case when a manager comes in. They like some of the players, they don’t like others.
“I think he knows where he stands with Tottenham, he knows he’s not wanted there and he’s got to find another football club, that’s for sure.
“He’d been given that opportunity at Newcastle and now they’re not going to take up that opportunity to buy him.
“There will be clubs out there looking at Danny Rose knowing that he has a lot to offer.
“It’s up to the player, we’ve seen players sit on contracts and will only go if the move is right for them.”
Rose played 13 times while on loan at St. James’ Park.
He joined Tottenham from Leeds in the summer of 2007 and has played 214 times for the Lilywhites scoring 10 goals.
The left-back also has 29 England caps and was part of the three lions’ squad that reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup.
