Free agent Danny Rose 'training with club in a bid to regain fitness' after Watford exit
| Last updated
Former Tottenham defender Danny Rose has been linked with a stunning return to football after his contract with Watford was mutually terminated, according to reports.
Rose arrived at Vicarage Road in 2021 after leaving Spurs and managed only nine appearances with Watford in his second spell with the club.
The 32-year-old ex-England international was released from his contract last September after Watford were relegated from the Premier League last season.
Rose has been without a club since his exit from the Hornets, but the left-back is eyeing a return to football and has been keeping on top of his fitness levels.
The Sun now reports that the former Watford and Tottenham player has been working with National League side York City in recent weeks.
And Rose, who hails from Doncaster in South Yorkshire, has been able to train with York City and ‘keep on top of his fitness’ ahead of potentially signing for a new club.
Rose recently pulled no punches towards former club Tottenham after AC Milan dumped Spurs out of the Champions League round of 16 last week.
“You say they have the best stadium… you can have the best house but if the furniture’s not the best inside, then it’s irrelevant,” he told Sky Sports.
“Going at the hierarchy… I still look to go into the Spurs training ground, so I’ll have to be careful what I say but I think that everybody has to be held accountable.
“I heard something recently that the signings have not been great and it’s bizarre as I’m sure I said something like that six years ago and got fined two weeks’ wages but here we are.
“Everybody has to be held accountable and I think it will be interesting to see where they go from here until the end of the season.”
