Danny Rose has followed in the footsteps of team-mate Harry Kane by revealing that he would like to spend the rest of his career at Tottenham Hotspur.
The England left-back is currently enjoying his 10th season at White Hart Lane after joining froom Leeds United whilst still a teenager.
Rose is keen to emulate club legend Ledley King, his former team mate who he holds in very high regard after playing with him for five years.
It is freshing to hear the likes of Rose and Kane coming out and saying that they want to remain at the club, in recent years we’ve been used to big name stars trying to engineer a move abroad or to the likes of Manchester United.
“I’m 26 now and starting to think about if I want to finish my career here and I’d love to do that,” Rose told the club’s official website. “There won’t be many players able to say that they’ve been at a club for X amount of years.
“I’d love to be able to look back at the end of my career and think I’d been at a club for the whole of my career. That’s the plan.
“You don’t know what will happen in football but that’s the plan, I want to be here for a long, long time and I hope while I’m here I get to win trophies as well.”
He added: “Ledley is a legend. When you see him with the players, some will ask ‘what was he like?’ and there really are no words to describe how Ledley was as a player and as a man.
“He was quiet, but a leader. I saw the pain he had to go through to be out there on a Saturday. You wouldn’t believe he’d missed most of the training sessions throughout the week and yet he’d be the best player on the pitch.”
