Danny Rose has been a revelation this season, scoring 17 goals in his 34 appearances and he’s now attracting the interest of Championship clubs.
Both Millwall and Cardiff are reported to be monitoring his progress after his recent run of five goals from seven games. One of those strikes came against Cardiff in their recent FA Cup clash with the Stags.
Rose won’t come cheap, he signed a new deal at Field Mill this January which keeps him at the club until 2020 and manager Steve Evans is under no pressure to cash in. Mansfield are amongst the big spenders in League Two and Evans won’t sell an asset if he doesn’t need to.
After his recent winner against Exeter, Evans praised his leading scorer, but added he won’t be getting a pat on the back just yet: “When he gets to 25 we’ll say well done Danny!”
“I made it clear in the summer that we had our 20-goal plus striker in the building, but people didn’t want to acknowledge it as they thought we’d go and sign someone from whatever level or whatever club. It guarantees you nothing.”
Rose started his career at Barnsley before spending two years on the fringes of Bury’s first team. Former Stags boss Adam Murray brought him to the Stags and, after surviving Evans’ per-season cull, he excelled despite the arrival of Lee Angol and Kane Hemmings from League One.
Danny Rose has been superb for Mansfield this season, out-scoring and out-performing more expensive imports. With no reason to sell at the moment, any chasing clubs will have to spend big if they’re to lure him away from Field Mill.
