Tottenham outcast Danny Rose was reportedly not told that he would lose his squad number this summer.
This has all but confirmed the end of Rose's career at Spurs after Jose Mourinho's side announced their squad numbers for the new campaign on Friday and did not include the England international.
Rose, who only has a year left on his current contract, was told that he is not part of Mourinho's plans for the 2020-21 season when he returned from his loan spell at Newcastle according to The Athletic.

But incredibly the 30-year-old is thought to have known nothing about losing the No 3 shirt
But incredibly the 30-year-old is thought to have known nothing about losing the No 3 shirt until receiving a phone call from somebody to say they had seen the news on television.
Rose has been training with Tottenham's Under 23s and has been advised to move to Serie A side Genoa by Mourinho.
The Spurs boss said on Friday before their 1-0 home defeat by Everton: 'If Genoa gets Danny Rose, I think they get a good player.
'If they get a good player in the last year of his contract, I think they're in a privileged position to do a good deal for them. And if Danny Rose goes there, I wish him all the best.
Rose requested a meeting with Mourinho in Tottenham's Amazon 'All or Nothing' documentary
The outspoken star told the Portuguese boss he is far from happy with his lack of playing time
'It's one of the things that was very clear you that you could learn from one of the Amazon bits is that Danny is the kind of guy who wants to play all the time.'
Amazon's crew filmed a heated row between Tottenham left-back Rose and their manager Mourinho last season after he was dropped from the team, with the defender storming out of his office.
Rose struggled for game time under the Portuguese boss following his arrival in November – starting just one Premier League game in a 1-0 defeat by Liverpool in January – and ended up joining Newcastle on loan shortly after.
The outspoken star has failed to nail down a regular spot in the first team in recent years and threatened to wind down the last 18 months of his contract and leave for nothing after Daniel Levy's failed attempts to sell him last summer. After Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino, he had hoped to turn over a new leaf.

But the England international – who is one of the longest-serving players at the club having joined in 2007 – continued to be frustrated. Mourinho quickly took a liking to Spurs youngster Japhet Tanganga, who emerged as the first-choice left-back after an impressive run of form.sonos sonos One (Gen 2) - Voice Controlled Smart Speaker with
