Jackett admitted Rose is finalising a move away.

The boss said: '˜At the moment he does look like he has a transfer away.

'˜He hasn't been around and he's in talks with a club I understand at the moment.

'˜It could be a possibility, yes (Rose could leave before the weekend).

'˜It's with Danny now. In terms of him, his family and his agent, I'm not sure where they are.

'˜I haven't seen him today but I'm sure he'll be working towards that and come down and say goodbye when it's all completed.'
