Doncaster-born Danny Rose is the name on agents’ lips for a big money sale from Tottenham.

Reigning Spanish champions Atletico Madrid are said to be interested in the 24-year-old left-sided player.

Diego Simeone’s club are said to have “extensively scouted” the Spurs full-back to fill a vacancy in his side.

Closer to home, Chelsea and Manchester City could easily meet the asking price, rumoured to be around £14m.

Rose only signed a new five-year contract at White Hart Lane last July, but the speculation is that he could be tempted by the prospect of Champions League football and playing abroad.

The player is a product of the Leeds United youth academy.
