Danny Rose is adamant he will not leave Tottenham Hotspur until his contract runs down in summer 2021
Although he was heavily linked with a departure during the summer, the 29-year-old has eventually managed to persuade the leadership to keep him on board.
It will be an uphill task for the left-back to convince the management to have a change of heart, mainly due to the way he has been playing at the beginning of the season.
The England international has endured another mixed start to the season that has seen Ben Davies taking his place in the starting eleven in the last two Spurs’ Premier League fixtures.
While Daniel Levy has already explained to Rose that he will not be offered a new deal, the player insists that Mauricio Pochettino is still holding him in the highest esteem.
“[Tottenham chairman] Daniel Levy told me in the summer there was no new contract for me at Tottenham, which is fine. I respect that. We move on,” he said, as transcribed by the Daily Mirror.
“My contract is up in 18 months’ time, and I’ll leave the football club then. People [in the media] can save their time trying to get stuff ready for January about me being sold.
“Because I can tell you now: it ain’t happening. I know what people were trying to do in the summer. There were no bids — that was rubbish.”
What’s more, Rose has firmly denied the possibility of him leaving north London in January.
“In January, you’re probably going to hear something [about my future]. I’m telling you right now that I’m not going anywhere until my contract is finished.”
