Paul Robinson has claimed that Danny Rose “probably will move on” from Tottenham Hotspur this summer unless his situation at the club changes.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Jason Jones, the former Spurs stopper hailed the left-back for seeking first team football with a loan move to Newcastle United last season, and suggested that he is at a point in his career where regular game time must be a priority.
As revealed by Football Insider, however, the Magpies are not interested in making a permanent swoop for the 29-cap England international in the coming weeks.
And with his situation in north London unlikely to improve either, Robinson believes that a summer exit could be the defender’s next move.
Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “I think that’s probably something that he’s looking at.
“If the manager has allowed him to go out on loan, there’s obviously been a conversation between player and manager. He’s obviously been happy to go out on loan and get some football. You’ve got to give the player a lot of credit for wanting to go out there and play.
“I suspect that if his situation is still the same at Spurs and the conversation is no different with the manager, if there is an opportunity to leave, he seems that he’s at a stage in his career where he wants to be playing football.
“If that’s not at Spurs, he probably will move on.”
Rose has struggled for game time in north London ever since Jose Mourinho took over in the dugout last year, registering just three outings from the end of October onwards.
The full-back as been at Spurs since 2007, and has made 214 senior appearances for the club across all competitions.
