Former Tottenham Hotspur full-back Danny Rose is believed to be edging closer to his next career move, and it may come as a surprise to many. 

As reported by The Sun, the ex-England international is set to join Greek side AEK Athens on a free transfer, having left Watford at the end of last season.

The report claims that the left-back has verbally agreed to join the Greek club on a one-year deal, and that he could even make his debut for the club on Saturday if the deal can be wrapped up quickly.

Rose, 32, joined Spurs as a teenager from the academy of Leeds United, and went on to spend 14 years with the club, before leaving to join The Hornets in 2021.

During his time with the north London outfit, Rose was sent out on loan to several clubs including Sunderland, Newcastle United and Bristol City, and also spent a brief spell at Watford.

Rose Spent 14 years with Spurs

In total Rose made 214 appearances for Spurs, scoring ten goals and providing 29 assists.

Arguably his most memorable moment in a Lilywhites shirt came on his debut against rivals Arsenal back in 2010, when he launched a first time volley straight into the net from 30 yards out to help Spurs on their way to a 2-1 win.

Rose then joined Watford in the summer of 2021, returning to a side that he had spent a few months on loan with back in 2009.

The defender couldn’t prevent The Hornets from being relegated, though, and he left Vicarage Road at the start of September having made just nine appearances for the club.

The report also claims that Rose was even training with Spurs over the summer, despite still being contracted to Watford.

Having made more than 50 appearances at youth level, he made his debut for England’s senior side in 2016, during a spectacular 3-2 win over Germany in Berlin.
