Back in November of this year, Danny Rose came out to say that while Spurs would not be offering him a new contract, he did not intend to go anywhere, but to instead run his 18-months down and leave on a free (Telegraph).

This would be far from music to Daniel Levy’s ears, as he already stands to lose Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, and Toby Alderweireld on free transfers in the summer unless they are sold or sign new deals.

Danny Rose confirmed this week that he has not spoken to new manager Jose Mourinho about his contract situation at the club, and does not believe he needs to. He reiterated that he would remain at Tottenham for the next 18-months (Mirror).

Jose Mourinho has now spoken on the subject, claiming that it is not a problem as 18-months is a long time in terms of Rose’s contract with the club.

He said (Football London): “18 months contract is a long time. He doesn’t finish his contract in June or July like some others, so plenty of time on his contract.”
