Ex Tottenham and England left-back Danny Rose came close to shock Poland move during winter window
The 32-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Watford in September 2022.
Rose and Watford agreed a mutual termination of his contract after a one season spell which saw him make eight Premier League appearances.
The former England international spent the majority of his career at Tottenham where he made 214 appearances and scored 10 goals. However, the player left the club following a public disagreement with then-manager Jose Mourinho. Rose criticised the Portuguese manager for a lack of playing time and opportunities - a conversation which was caught by cameras during the Amazon documentary series 'All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur'. Rose has been without a club since his departure from Watford and a move to the Polish top tier was on the cards according to TVP journalist Bartosz Jankowski.
In a tweet, the journalist claims that Rose was turned down by Widzew due to his recent form and the financial obligations which would come with a move of that magnitude.
Players in the Polish Ekstraklasa earn a fraction of the money on offer in the Premier League. The highest earning player in the league according to recent reports is Legia Warsaw defender Artur Jedrzejczyk who is said to make £8,000 per week.
Rose, on the other hand, was earning £60,000 per week during his most recent spell with Watford, according to Spotrac.
Widzew, who eliminated Liverpool on their way to the 1982/83 European Cup semi-final, recently returned to the top tier of Polish football. The club are currently fourth in the standings and are targeting a potential return to a European competition next season.
