Tottenham Hotspur's Danny Rose is set to remain with the club until the end of the season, despite strong rumours linking him with a January switch to Manchester United. The tenacious left-back's future has been in question since the summer, when he shocked Spurs fans by publicly criticising the club's transfer policy. A long-term injury has also blighted Rose's season.
As reported by the Times, Rose was reported incensed when left out of Mauricio Pochettino's squad to play Arsenal last weekend, leading to a heated row between the player and manager. However, despite previously hinting of a desire for a move north of London, it is understood that Rose will remain with the club until the end of the 2017/18 season.
Speaking on a potential move away from the club, Rose was adamant that he would remain with Spurs until at least the end of the campaign, claiming:
"I want to contribute to Tottenham winning something this season. Nothing’s changed. Everyone just needs to understand that me and the manager want the same thing for this season - we want to win something.
"So I’m on the same page, I’m fully focused on playing as many games as I can for Tottenham, contributing to something beautiful, successful this season. And again, there’s been no bust-up, no falling-out, and I’m on the same page as the coaching staff.”
Rose has been with Spurs since 2007, when he made the switch from Leeds United. After impressing with loan spells at Watford, Peterborough United, Bristol City and Sunderland, the speedy defender broke into the Spurs side in the 2013/14 season, earning his first England call-up at the end of the season.
