Tottenham Hotspur’s current longest-serving senior player, Danny Rose, has reportedly been left disgruntled by contract situations at the North London club.
Typically, Daniel Levy is not one to hand out new long-term deals to players around the age of 30, but Moussa Sissoko proved to be an exception this season after signing a new four-year deal.
Danny Rose commented earlier in the year that he knows how the club operates in terms of shipping players on once they reach a certain age (Sky Sports).
He said: “It’s not about regular first-team football. I know my age and I know how the club’s run in terms of if you get to a certain age they might look to ship you on.”
Rose is not 30 for another year and has been at Tottenham since the 2007/08 season, playing in ten senior campaigns for the Lilywhites since joining. In this time, Rose has racked up 206 appearances and scored 10 goals in a Spurs shirt (Wikipedia).
However, the left-back’s form has dipped in the past couple of months, with Tottenham as a club only picking up three wins in the 12 games so far this season.
Football Insider have now reported that Rose is disgruntled that Sissoko has been handed a new long-term deal while Spurs have refused to offer the same to him.
Spurs Web Opinion:
I would argue that Spurs would probably happily offer Rose a new deal if he was playing as well as Sissoko has over the past season.
