Rose becomes Watford’s third signing of the summer after landing Nantes midfielder, Imran Louza, for £10million and Middlesbrough ex-striker, Ashley Fletcher, on a free transfer.
The attack-minded left-back, whose arrival was confirmed by the club in a statement on Wednesday, chose Watfords, the club he made seven appearance for during a short loan stint, after becoming a free agent following expiration of his contract at Tottenham this summer.
Before leaving Tottenham, the defender made 214 appearances for Spurs and earning 29 caps in the process for the country’s national team, contributing to the team’s qualifications to different tournaments.

Rose did not make a single appearance for Spurs last season with his final game for the club in the home defeat to Liverpool in January 2020.
The defender, who made 13 appearances on loan at Newcastle in the second half of the 2019-20 season, is joining the team after a season in the Championship, having finished second behind Norwich City in the 2020-21 campaign.
