DANNY ROSE has been told he can leave Watford after just seven months, according to reports.
And that could see the left-back make a free transfer exit this January.
According to the Daily Mail, the Hornets informed the player he would never play for the club again.
However, with 18 months left on his two-year deal at Vicarage Road, the report adds Rose has no intention of being forced out.
It is understood there has been a serious breakdown in his relationship between the 29-cap England international with manager Claudio Ranieri.
The former Tottenham man is said to be 'disillusioned' with the Italian's tactics, play and training round manner at Watford.
While the manager also claimed the defender was not fit enough.
Rose, 31, started five matches in a row between September 11 and October 16 but did not even make the matchday squad for the recent defeats to West Ham, Spurs and Leicester.
Turkish side Trabzonspor were interested in Rose prior to his move to Vicarage Road.

Should Watford fail to shift him, however, it is likely that he won't be named in their 25-man Premier League squad at the end of the month – following the arrival of fellow left-back Hassane Kamara from Nice.
Rose is now behind Adam Masina and Kamara in the pecking order – while right-back Jeremy Ngakia recently filled in ahead of him against Brentford.
Youngster James Morris is also in the frame to play ahead of Rose – whose last appearance came in the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City on December 4.
Watford have lost nine of Ranieri's 11 games in charge at Vicarage Road.
Should he be sacked by the trigger-happy Pozzo family this month, things may change.
