Report: Leeds hoping Premier League deal concluded before Friday’s deadline

Leeds United are hopeful that Tottenham defender Danny Rose can seal a move before the end of the January transfer window, with the Eland Road club in line to gain a significant amount from any fee, according to Football Insider.

Rose moved to White Hart Lane from the Whites 13 years ago and the deal included a sell-on clause as well in the contract, according to eh latest report.

Leeds are entitled to 10% of the transfer fee that Tottenham receive for the English international.

Rose has been a key part of the Tottenham set-up ever since his move from Elland Road and has been a fan favourite despite asking for a transfer in the press a few seasons ago.

However, he has slipped down the pecking order under new manager Jose Mourinho.

Youngster Ryan Sessegnon, who moved from Fulham in the summer, has been given more game time and one can expect that Welsh international Ben Davies will be first choice once he returns to full fitness.

Sessesgnon, who is only 19 years old, has been given significant playing time alongside Spurs academy graduate Japhet Tanganga as Mourinho looks to rebuild his side’s defence with young blood.

Tottenham are eager to sell Rose this window so that they can command a better negotiating position with his contract running out in summer of 2021.

By the time the next window comes around, Rose will have 12 months left on this contract and the owner club can be bullied in such a situation as seen by Tottenham in Christian Eriksen’s case.

Any financial boost for Leeds would be good for the promotion chasers, with the Yorkshire fans keen for more new faces before the window closes.
