Danny Rose has hit out for the ‘people upstairs’ at Tottenham for trying to sell him last summer, insisting he will not leave until his contract expires.
The defender was reportedley a target for Watford during the previous transfer window, while Mauricio Pochettino admitted Rose could have left.
But the England left back has now made his feelings on the issue clear, telling chairman Daniel Levy that he will only go when his deal ends in 2021.
Danny Rose has told Tottenham that he will only leave the club when his contract expires
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.’
