Tottenham outcast set to snub Prem interest for surprise European switch

Danny Rose TEAMtalk

Danny Rose is close to bringing an end to his Tottenham career as reports claim he is the subject of an offer from Trabzonspor.

Rose has not featured at all for Tottenham this season after being left out of their Premier League and Europa League squads.

Out of favour under Jose Mourinho, he has not played for the club in over a year after spending the second half of last season on loan with Newcastle.

Hence, Rose is set to leave Tottenham six months before his contract is due to expire. According to talkSPORT, Turkish side Trabzonspor have reached an agreement to sign him, with sports betting odds available on their success in the Turkish league, it might not be the best move ever.

Spurs had been considering cancelling the remainder of Rose’s contract to allow him to move elsewhere. However, it seems they have found a different way to get him off the books.

Trabzonspor have put a three-and-a-half-year contract offer on the table. If accepted, it would make Rose the third English-born player at the Turkish club, after Lewis Baker and Benik Afobe.

At the age of 30, Rose still has plenty of time left in his playing career. But with no opportunities at Tottenham, he will be heading abroad.

West Brom had also been interested in him. However, Rose favoured the option to move to a different country.

Therefore, should there be no last-minute hiccups, Rose will become a Trabzonspor player in the coming days.

Gedson Fernandes also heading to Turkey

Another Tottenham player whose future seems to lie in the Turkish Super Lig is Gedson Fernandes.

The midfielder has had limited opportunities since joining on an 18-month loan one year ago and could leave ahead of schedule.

Rather than returning to parent club Benfica, though, it appears Fernandes will also be moving to Turkey.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Benfica are planning to loan him to Galatasaray for the rest of the season. The Portuguese club will only cut Fernandes’ loan short if they have another taker and it seems the Istanbul-based club will oblige.
