Watford made no deadline day approach for Danny Rose on transfer deadline day contrary to reports elsewhere.

Football Insider claim that the Hornets made an offer to Tottenham Hotspur for the left-back, however the Watford Observer understands contact never materialised beyond an initial enquiry.

The England international has not been included in Spurs' squad for the current season and will likely leave in January, or on a free transfer next summer.

He has been linked with a move to Watford before, with a late attempt to sign him in summer 2019 ultimately unsuccessful.

While the Hornets are still in the market for a left-back Rose is not one who the club showed significant interest in during the recent window.

Whether or not his availability would make him a target in January remains to be seen.

When asked about transfers at his press conference on Monday, head coach Vladimir Ivic said: "We are looking for some position, we didn't find the player who can give us this quality that we want. We have these financial problems and we couldn't move to buy some players because of the situation.

"Now with the players we have we need to work hard and maybe wait for the January transfer window. Maybe we can wait for the players who will come back in the next one, two, three months after their injury to complete some positions that we missed, to fight, to work together and to think for the next game. This is our philosophy and the way that we want to work."
