Danny Rose Calls Out on Tottenham’s Inactive Summer Transfer Window



Danny Rose is very candidly advocating his team open the purse strings and spend some pounds (or Euros).

It’s understandable, to an extent, why Tottenham Hotspur have had such an inactive summer transfer window. With so much money tied up in the new stadium scheme, they just don’t have the cash to throw around on splashy new expensive players. Still, you got to do something, and Spurs have done nothing this summer, as they have added zero players to their squad.

Spurs left back Danny Rose knows that if you’re standing still, you’re actually falling behind as your rivals advance. Rose spoke about White Hart Lane’s comatose summer transfer window.


Rose bluntly told The Sun: “I am not saying buy ten players, I’d love to see two or three — and not players you have to Google and say, ‘Who’s that?’ I mean well-known players.”

Danny Rose, who was chosen as the left back in the last two PFA XI of the year teams, has himself been linked to Manchester United this summer, but is probably not going to be moved anywhere. While Spurs haven’t bought anyone, on the flip side, they do a great job holding on to the players they want to go keep. Rose was very plain-spoken, no press conferencespeak or mind-numbing athlete cliches here, as he stated his awe for 1.) what his own club has done in the past in the transfer market and 2.) Manchester City’s splashing the cash.

“Under Harry Redknapp we signed Rafa van der Vaart. It was like, ‘Wow, how did he do that?’

“I mean signings like that are what we need — that’s just my opinion.”

“There are three weeks to go until the window shuts and you look at Man City and think, ‘If the window shut now they would be happy with the business they have done’.”

We shall between now and Aug 31 if THFC heed the words of Danny Rose.
