Tottenham defender Danny Rose reportedly missed out on a transfer to Turkish outfit Trabzonspor due to Coronavirus regulations.
The full-back has not made a single first team appearance this season, having played just twice in Premier League 2.
Rose, 30, may have hoped to kickstart his career, something that has rather stalled over the past few years.
But a potential lifeline was cut off due to Covid-19 quarantine rules, according to Fotospor.
Reports had emerged that a potential move away had collapsed a few days earlier.
Fotospor claim Trabzonspor did indeed reach an agreement with Spurs but the move was called off because the Super Lig club did not want to ‘risk the player’ breaking Turkish coronavirus travel rules.
The source outlined that anyone arriving in the country from England must self-isolate for seven days upon arrival and Rose only had three days before deadline day passed.
As a result, FotoSpor says, the transfer has been postponed until the summer.
Rose sees his Tottenham contract expire in the summer. His exit will mark the end of a 14-year stay at the club.
The England international played 12 Premier League games for Spurs last season before spending the second half of the season on loan at Newcastle United.
However, it seems he plays no part in Jose Mourinho’s plans, having not featured for the first team since January 2020.
He has made 214 across all competitions appearances for the London club.

Tottenham linked with shock move for ex-Gunner
Spurs have been linked with a potential move for former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
The Juventus midfielder has struggled to make a name for himself under boss Andrea Pirlo.
The Wales international could go for as little as £13million, if reports from Italy are to be believed.
Wolves are also said to be interested in the 30-year-old’s services.
Ramsey made 369 appearances and scored 64 times during his 11-year stay at Arsenal.
