Tottenham left-back Danny Rose is currently on loan from Newcastle United.
The defender is expected to leave London for good at the end of this season and Newcastle has been instructed to sign a long-term contract.
However, Kevin Phillips believes Rose could be a good addition to Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United.
He said to Football Insider: "I wouldn't be surprised. You can see quite often that players from this area end up in the club again. Danny Rose has the Premier League experience and still can. He is still a left-back. I'm sure the new owners in Newcastle Rose would like to keep them, but the player could be tempted by moving to Yorkshire and be part of what Leeds is building there. This experience would help the squad. I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up in Leeds with the transfer window open – assuming Leeds climbs. "
The whites are expected to return to the Premier League by the end of this season and will need higher caliber players to succeed next year.
Someone like Rose would be a great addition.
If he can regain his form, he would be one of the league's best left-backs. Rose would greatly improve Bielsa's defense.
In addition, the dressing room in Leeds could also use his experience in the Premier League. He could be a leader for them on and off the field.
It will be interesting to see where Rose lands this summer.
In addition, the player will be a free agent and the transfer would be a breeze for Leeds. Signing someone like Rose for nothing would be a feat.
The former Leeds Academy graduate knows everything about the club and may be tempted to return to Elland Road if a reasonable offer is made to him.
