MOT View: Wednesday update on PL club could benefit Leeds in January

Who would have thought it? Jose Mourinho’s recent appointment at Tottenham is likely set to have an effect on Leeds United in the transfer window.

The obvious matter is Jack Clarke. Many have accepted the fact that the winger is set to be recalled by the Premier League club with him struggling for minutes in the Championship.

One other possible outcome is that Danny Rose could leave the North London side. That would mean that Leeds could receive their sell-on clause on the defender.

Phil Hay revealed that the Whites have a 10% clause on Rose, meaning they would earn £1million should Spurs sell the left-back for £10million.

Rose did recently admit that he wants to remain at Spurs until the end of his contract, something that would see him stay at the club until the end of next season.

That would mean that he would leave for free after his time at Tottenham, and that would lead to no sell-on clause for Leeds in the next couple of years.

Here is where Mourinho has stepped in. The Telegraph has reported on Wednesday that the Portuguese boss is ready to offload Rose in January.

The newspaper did admit it is a complicated situation, but that Spurs will listen to offers for Rose as they plan to streamline their squad.

Leeds will not care how the 29-year-old leaves, as long as they end up receiving their 10% of the deal to possibly help boost their window in the promotion push this season.

Mourinho’s appointment has most likely increased the chances of Rose being sold, and we will be crossing our fingers that a deal can be sorted in the upcoming window.
