Tottenham outcast Danny Rose set for Genoa transfer after not being given squad number following Mourinho bust-up
DANNY ROSE is set to join Genoa after being frozen out at Tottenham, according to reports.
The left-back signed for Newcastle on loan in January after a falling out with manager Jose Mourinho.
But the Magpies didn't make a bid to acquire Rose, 30, on a permanent deal, instead opting to sign Jamal Lewis from Norwich.
According to the Mirror, however, Rose WILL get his Spurs escape this summer – with Serie A side Genoa on the verge of completing a deal.
The Italians are in advanced talks with Spurs and are "open" to a permanent transfer or a loan.

Even the latter would all but end Rose's 13-year stay at Tottenham, with the England international having just one year left on his contract in North London.
Upon his return from Newcastle, Rose has been training with Spurs' Under-23s in a bid to get fit for the new season.
And he has been stripped of his No3 shirt, only finding out when phoned by a friend who told him the news was on TV – according to The Athletic.
Tottenham have Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon as left-back options – while teenager Dennis Cirkin is highly thought of.
But the Lilywhites appear on the verge of sealing another option – with Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon set to join for around £25million.
Spurs beat Manchester United to the Spaniard, 23, with official confirmation of the deal expected imminently.
And Tottenham are also on the brink of sealing another huge transfer coup, with Gareth Bale set to return after seven years at Real Madrid.
Chairman Daniel Levy is set to seal a £20m loan move for the Welshman, 31, with the ex-Spurs star having reportedly passed a medical.
