Danny Rose joins Watford on a two-year deal

Defender Danny Rose has signed a two-year deal with newly promoted Watford.

The left-back has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal at the Hornets.

He will join the club as a free agent from Tottenham on July 1.

Rose left Tottenham following 14 years with the Premier League club.

The 30-year-old, who earned the most recent of his 29 England caps in 2019, had a loan stint with Watford in 2009.

Rose last featured in the top flight in July 2020 while on loan at Newcastle.

Danny Rose time at Tottenham

Rose scored 10 goals during his time at Spurs and played in the 2015 League Cup final loss to Chelsea.

He also played the Champions League final defeat by Liverpool in 2019.

Seven months after starting in the defeat against the Reds, he was sent out on loan to Newcastle.

He failed to establish himself in new manager Jose Mourinho’s plans.

Rose joins a Hornets side that sealed an immediate return to the Premier League last season with a second-place finish in the Championship.

Watford start their campaign at home to Aston Villa on 14 August.

What has been said

“I wish we could have won something together but the club are not far away from that.”

“And obviously I wish everybody at the club the best of luck going forward.”

“On the whole, the club and the chairman have been brilliant towards me.”

“For 14 years I’ve pretty much driven the same route into training every day.”

“It’s all I’ve known really, it’s going to be strange when I join a new team.”

“I’m going to be taking a different route to training.”

“But I’m grateful to the club for bringing me in in 2007 as a 17-year-old.”

“I feel very privileged to have experienced some of Tottenham’s great days.”

“I was given an opportunity this season to pass some of that knowledge on.”

“I’d like to think that I’ve done that and I leave the football club a better person, a better professional, a better human than I was when I arrived 14 years ago.”
