Tottenham Hotspur news: Danny Rose to stay and fight for left-back spot after impressing Mauricio Pochettino

29 Aug

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose is set to stay with the club until January and fight for the left-back role, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Schalke, Marseille, and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with moves for the England star but now it seems he will remain with the north Londoners.

Up until January 2017, Rose was first-choice under Mauricio Pochettino but injury and patchy form has seen Ben Davies become the No.1 left-back for Spurs.

All summer a transfer abroad has been mooted with clubs in France and Germany rumoured to be eyeing him.

But now the 28-year-old could remain with Tottenham until at least January after impressing manager Pochettinio in training, which led to his start against Manchester United on Monday night.

Rose looked rusty in the 3-0 and will need to improve if he is to surpass Davies who, despite lacking the physicality of his rival, has exceptional positional sense and a better final ball.
