Robinson Exclusive: Leeds told to sign England international in termination talks
Leeds United should look to sign Danny Rose if the defender’s contract at Tottenham is terminated this season, according to Paul Robinson.
The former England international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, said that signing the 30-year-old would be a “no brainer” for any club.
Rose failed to secure a move away from Spurs this summer and is currently stuck in limbo after he was omitted from the club’s Premier League squad for the 2020/21 campaign.
Tottenham are exploring the option of terminating the left-back’s contract but Football Insider understands that the defender wants the remaining eight months of his contract paid out in full if that is to be the case.
Robinson believes 29-time England international Rose could provide valuable cover for an injury-stricken Leeds defence.
“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.”
Diego Llorente, Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips are currently sidelined through injury.
However, Marcelo Bielsa is hopeful that captain Cooper will be available for next Monday’s game against Leicester City.
