Unable to get the required game time he wanted at Tottenham, Danny Rose looked elsewhere for first-team football.

Spurs were relatively happy to help facilitate the move, and the England international eventually ended up at Newcastle United to play under Steve Bruce.

The 30-year-old arrived to help compensate for the loss of Jetro Willems, whose season ended abruptly through injury despite a very positive start to his loan deal at St James’ Park.

Rose did the job he was required to do, but the Magpies never seemed keen to make the move permanent, meaning a new option is needed for the Spurs defender.

That’s where Cagliari come in, as TuttoMercatoWeb in Italy claim the Tottenham left-back is a ‘new idea’ for the Serie A side, with ‘contacts in progress’.

It’s a very short but sweet article, with little detail, but it gives us an idea of the type of club Rose could end up at next year.

Maybe a new Italian adventure could interest him, especially after seeing how well Chris Smalling did during his stint at AS Roma last year?
