Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose has revealed he will only leave the club when his contract expires in 2021.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a move away from Spurs over the past few seasons but remains part of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad after no offers materialised.
Rose has played 11 games for Spurs in all competitions this season, including nine in the Premier League, moving ahead of Ben Davies in the pecking order.
When will Danny Rose leave Spurs? Five things to know…
- Danny Rose has been linked with a move away from Tottenham Hotspur over the past few seasons.
- But the left-back remains in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad for the 2019/20 campaign.
- Rose has revealed he will not be offered a new contract, with his current deal running out in 2021.
- And although Spurs may look to sell him in January, Rose insists he will not be going anywhere.
- Instead, Rose plans to see out his contract, leaving Spurs in 2021.
Spurs have endured a poor start to the 2019/20 campaign and currently sit 14th in the Premier League after 12 games. Rose has been one of the many Spurs players to have received criticism for his performances including the 7-2 home thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
With the January transfer window not too far away, it has been speculated that Spurs will once again be looking to offload Rose before he enters the final year of his contract.
And while some players may be open to a move in those circumstances, Rose is adamant he will see out the remainder of his contract – against Spurs’ wishes.
“It’s pretty obvious what happened [in the summer],” he told the Evening Standard.
“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.
“[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: I have Pochettino’s backing
Despite the efforts of the Spurs board to try and move Rose on over the past few seasons, the left-back insists he still has the backing of Mauricio Pochettino – and would only think about leaving the club if that ceased to be the case.
“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,” added Rose.
“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.”
