Three years ago, Rose was perhaps one of the best left-backs in the Premier League and he was flying in Tottenham colours.

But it has all come crashing down in recent seasons, with the Spurs academy product falling out of favour towards the back end of Mauricio Pochettino’s reign and then not seeing eye-to-eye with Jose Mourinho.

Watford have just earned promotion to the Premier League and their fans are seemingly pleased that they are signing him up on a free transfer.

In truth, given that they aren’t paying a fee for the player, they don’t have much to lose.

But given Rose’s lack of game time in recent years, it has to be questioned where his career is at and whether or not he can get that sharpness back into his legs.

It’s not going to be an easy task at Watford because they are a newly-promoted side, but they do have a lot of experience in the squad.

From the likes of Troy Deeney and Tom Cleverley, there are a number of familiar faces that Rose will link up with if the move goes through.
