Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the departures of Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga following the expiration of their contracts.
It's a sad ending for Rose who having previously made 214 appearances for the club was overlooked completely this season with his only football coming in the Premier League 2 with the Under-23s.
The 30-year-old has criticised the club's transfer policy in the past as well as specifically Jose Mourinho for refusing to give him the opportunity to prove himself.
Rose joined the north London outfit from Leeds United way back in 2007 and after a series of loan spells established himself as a valuable member of the first team in the 2013/14 season.
The outspoken defender spent the second half of the 2019/20 season on loan at Newcastle, and therefore his departure has long been on the cards.
Gazzaniga signed for Spurs from fellow Premier League club Southampton in 2017, and went on to make 37 appearances for the club.
Due to a lack of first-team opportunities, the Argentine moved to the Spanish side Elche back in February and spent the remainder of the season with the club. Gazzaniga made eight appearances during his loan spell and assisted them in escaping the drop.
Tottenham, via their official website, thanked both for their services to the club despite the clearly fractured relationship between themselves and in particular, Danny Rose.
Spurs also confirmed the departures of a number of players from their development squad including Enock Asante, Chay Cooper, Keenan Ferguson, George Marsh, Rodel Richards, Jack Roles, Aaron Skinner, Kazaiah Sterling and Shilow Tracey.
It appears its going to be a summer of change at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the club said to have entered talks with their former boss Mauricio Pochettino over a potential return just 18 months after he was given his marching orders by chairman Daniel Levy.
