Danny Rose 'will NOT play for Watford again'

Danny Rose ‘will NOT play for Watford again, with boss Claudio Ranieri ready to show the former Tottenham left-back the Vicarage Road exit’ just SEVEN months after joining the club

  • Danny Rose signed for Watford on a free transfer from Tottenham in the summer
  • But the 31-year-old has since lost his place in the side under Claudio Ranieri
  • Rose has not featured in any of Watford’s last five matchday squads 

Watford are reportedly ready to ditch Danny Rose during the January transfer window despite the left-back having only joined the club in the summer.

The 31-year-old arrived at the newly promoted Premier League outfit back in June following the expiry of his contract at Tottenham Hotspur where he had not played for 18 months.

According to Sky Sports News, Rose will now not play for Watford again and he will leave the club during January.

The left-back has struggled for action since the arrival of Claudio Ranieri as manager

Despite an early run in the first team at Vicarage Road, Rose has lost his place in the side since the arrival of Claudio Ranieri as manager in October.

He has played just four times under the Italian manager in defeats by Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City – the latter of which was his last of his nine total appearances this season.

Although he was on the bench against Brentford a month ago, he has not been involved in any of Watford’s five previous matchday squads.

Ranieri is already set to offload the former Tottenham and England left-back from his side

Ranieri hinted back in December that he was unhappy with the levels of fitness the former England international was showing despite having shown improvement. 

‘I remember Danny when he played at Tottenham and the England national team and I need this Danny’ Ranieri said.

‘I think it is more fitness than a confidence issue. When he came he was down on fitness and now he has improved a lot but he needs to improve more.

‘It is difficult though to say how long that will take.’
