Danny Rose has revealed that he plans to run down the final eighteen months of his contract at Tottenham Hotspur.
The left-back claims that Daniel Levy told him during the summer that he would not be offered a new contract and added that there will be further news on his future in January but insists he will not be forced out of the North London club.
Rose, 29, was linked with a move to Watford during the summer with The Sun claiming that he even made the trip to the Hornets’ training ground only for a deal to fail to materialise.
The England international claimed that the club wanted to sell him during the summer but has made it clear he will see out the rest of his deal and that there were no offers for him in the previous window despite the Watford rumours.
He told the Evening Standard: “It’s pretty obvious what happened [in the summer]. People upstairs at Tottenham were trying to do what they were trying to do. I’ve said [to them] I’ve got 18 months left on my contract and I’m not going anywhere until my contract has finished.
“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.
“[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.
“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.”
Rose says that he still has the full backing of Mauricio Pochettino, he added: “When the manager stops calling me into his office, stops giving me advice, that’s when I’ll think it’s time to leave Tottenham,”
“But until then, I’m not going anywhere. I’m lucky to have a manager at Tottenham who, from the first day we met, has always stuck by me, regardless of anything, regardless of the rubbish in the media about me being sold or not part of his plans — all that nonsense.”
