Feeling nostalgic, Danny? Rose ‘applied to train at Tottenham’ despite STILL being signed at Watford… the full-back is pushing to secure a move after a disastrous campaign at Vicarage Road
- Danny Rose has one year left on his contract with Championship Club Watford
- He only made eight league appearances for the Hornets in the 2021–22 season
- Rose is now looking for a new club and has chosen to train at Tottenham
- He left Spurs last year after being frozen by former boss Jose Mourinho
Former Tottenham defender Danny Rose is reportedly back training at the Hotspur Way despite being signed at Watford.
Rose has a year left on his contract with Vicarage Road but is looking to exit after being relegated with the Hornets last season.
As he weighs his options, Rose is being put through his paces at Spurs after asking to train with the Premier League club Watford Observer.
Danny Rose played just eight league games for Watford last season when they were relegated
He is now back at his former club Tottenham, despite having a contract with Watford
The England international with 29 caps made just eight appearances for Watford in the top flight in 2021-22, with the last of those appearances coming in early December.
He fell out of favor under former manager Claudio Ranieri but failed to get a transfer back in January.
However, a move seems inevitable as Rose isn’t even training at the club he’s currently employed at.
Still, it comes as a bit of a surprise to see the 32-year-old returning to Tottenham given how acrimonious his departure from the club was last summer.
Rose famously fell out with Jose Mourinho when the pair were both at Tottenham
After playing in the Champions League final in June 2019, Rose lost his place in the first-team when Jose Mourinho joined Spurs in November 2019.
The full-back famously questioned the Portugal coach about why he stopped playing during an impassioned tirade on the club’s All or Nothing Amazon documentary.
However, his fortunes did not improve after this discussion as Tottenham loaned him to Newcastle for the second half of the 2019-20 season.
Rose returned to Tottenham this summer but was then left out of the first-team by Mourinho and did not play for the senior team throughout the 2020-21 season.
Watford ended his nightmare spell at Spurs by signing him on a free transfer in July 2021, but 12 months later he’s back with his old team-mates and is looking for another club to give him a chance.
