Danny Rose could soon be on the move if as expected the 21-year-old Swansea full back arrives.
Tottenham's Danny Rose was hoped to be the answer to the club's left back issues this time last year, after returning from an impressive loan spell at Sunderland the season before.
Few players have made as big an impact on their debut as the former Leeds United player, smashing home an unstoppable volley from 40 yards against rivals Arsenal on his first Premier League start.
Since then, the majority of Spurs fans had been hoping the 24-year-old would continue to mature into a player that would represent the club for many years to come.
But despite some decent performances last season, Rose was part of a Spurs defence that really struggled on more than one occasion - most notably in games with Champions League rivals - and given the club's search for reinforcements at left back, will likely have to decide whether to stay and fight for his place or seek pastures new.
With Tottenham on the cusp of sealing a move for Swansea's 21-year-old Welshman Ben Davies, Rose may only have up until September to wait and see if he is given a role to play under Pochettino.
However, the Mirror are reporting that if Rose was to decide to leave the North Londoners, where he has been for the last seven years, a side increasingly happy to take on former Tottenham stars are set to make inroads to sign him.
Hull City already have a former Tottenham midfield, with both Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone signing from Spurs, and starring at the Tigers. Adding Rose would take the Spurs connection to three, with interest in Tottenham captain Michael Dawson also ongoing.
Steve Bruce is set to offer £6 million for the former England Under-21 international, meaning Spurs earn back most of what they paid for Davies by selling Rose, and the player himself would be an excellent addition to a side that dabbles in both 442 and 352.
