Rose was one of the key players in the Spurs squad and had received rave reviews on his performances early last season.
However, he suffered a knee injury back in January and has not played since. Spurs will not want to lose Rose, but they have a ready-made replacement in Ben Davies, who is only a notch or two below the England worldwide in an attacking sense, and offers greater reliability in defence.
The Argentina worldwide has also spent some time with the medical staff at former club Roma during his time out, with the two clubs working together in an attempt to help him fully recover.
Spurs have seen left-back Ben Davies step up in recent weeks, and Rose is not assured of his first team spot upon his return to fitness.
Danny Rose and @ErikLamela train with the rest of the team at Hotspur Way today as they continue to progress with their rehabilitation.
It has been even longer since manager Mauricio Pochettino was last able to call upon the services of fellow Argentine Lamela, who has not played a single minute of football since appearing as a substitute in Tottenham's 2-1 EFL Cup fourth round defeat to Liverpool in October 2016.

Here is a look at how Spurs fans reacted to the latest Rose reports.
Per Cross, a source indicated the 27-year-old-currently tied to a £75,000-a-week contract to 2021 at Spurs-would pick a move to United over Chelsea despite the Blues' interest: "The lure of United is too strong for him, and if he had the choice he would pick United hands down".
This comes after the player claimed the club lacked ambition during the summer transfer window, which he was later fined for.
