Tottenham have confirmed the departures of Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga from the club.
Signed from Leeds United in 2007, Rose became a regular in the Spurs team under Mauricio Pochettino after various loan spells away from the capital.
In and out of the team during the 2019/20 season, the left-back joined Newcastle United on loan in January after struggling to win a place in Jose Mourinho’s starting XI.
Unable to secure a permanent move away last summer, Rose remained at the club but did not play a single minute for the first team after the former head coach elected not to name him in either his Premier League or Europa League squad.
The 30-year-old, who made 214 appearances for Tottenham, now leaves on a free transfer following the conclusion of his contract in N17.
Gazzaniga also exits with his contract coming to an end after four years with Spurs.
Signed from Southampton in 2017 by Pochettino, who is now in talks over a sensational return to the club as manager, the Argentine made 37 first-team appearances but headed out on loan to Spanish side Elche for the second half of the current campaign.
Struggling to get minutes under his belt to begin with, the shot-stopper ended the season with eight starts for the La Liga side as they avoided the drop by two points.
Rose and Gazzaniga aren’t the only two players to depart Tottenham with the Lilywhites also announcing that a number of their development squad players will also move on with their contracts coming to an end.
Enock Asante, Chay Cooper, Keenan Ferguson, George Marsh, Rodel Richards, Jack Roles, Aaron Skinner, Kazaiah Sterling and Shilow Tracey are the nine players that will depart and look to secure to moves elsewhere ahead of next season.
Marsh made one first-team appearance for the club in their FA Cup third-round win over Tranmere Rovers in January 2019, with Sterling playing for the first team in both the Champions League and FA Cup.
Tottenham also confirmed that U18s duo Eddie Carrington and Tarrelle Whittaker have also moved on following the conclusion of their scholarships.
