The former Leeds striker, speaking exclusively to Football initiate, insists Rose’s salary could prove to be a stumbling block as he searches for a new club.

Pink spent last season on loan at Newcastle United and there was no room for him once he returned to Spurs.
He has been excluded from Tottenham’s Premier League and Europa League squad as he failed to make a first team appearance in the 2020/21 season.
Whelan insists Rose won’t have a huge selection of clubs this summer.
“He will get a club but I don’t think he will be asked for”, Whelan said Football initiate Associate Editor Russell Edge.
“He hasn’t played football for a long time so we don’t know where he is in terms of fitness.
“He will get a top club at the end of his career, but he won’t be inundated with top level offers.
“Someone’s going to take a chance on him, that’s for sure. I’m sure he still has a lot to offer, but he’s the forgotten man.
“When you’re not playing, you limit the number of clubs that are going to come for you. Then you have the salary stumbling block.
“He may have to take a pay cut. You can’t bargain much, but he needs to play football.
Rose made 214 appearances for Tottenham after making his Premier League debut in 2010.
He marked the occasion with an incredible long-distance effort against Arsenal.
In other news, Tottenham don’t want a big name who started their last five games to play for the club again.
