Tottenham defender Danny Rose has underwent knee surgery which could rule him out for the start of the 2017-18 season. The news will come as a blow to the North London side.
Rose has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Premier League and has been linked with moves to Manchester City and Manchester United.
Though the 26-year-old had returned to training this week, his problem resurfaced which meant that surgery was a necessary. Rose has not played since Spurs’ 0-0 draw with Sunderland, where he had to limp off due to a medical ligament in his left knee.
For Tottenham, the chances of them losing Rose during the summer appear to be slim. In September, he penned a new five year deal with the club and as a product of its youth development system, there is no doubt that it will be difficult to lure him away.
