Spurs have been keen to secure the long-term futures of several key players recently, with Rose joining midfield trio Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen in committing to an extended agreement.
Tom Carroll and Harry Winks, who were selected in central midfield for Wednesday’s 5-0 League Cup win over Gillingham, also signed new contracts last week.

Rose has established himself into a crucial first-team player under Mauricio Pochettino.
The club’s left-back has been apart of a successful backline alongside Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and international team-mate Kyle Walker.
Rose helped Spurs return to the Champions League last season, with a third place finish in the league, and has made huge developments in the last couple of years.
The defender has now made 126 appearances since joining Spurs in 2007 and a string of loan spells helped him improve as a player.
He was rewarded with an inclusion in England’s Euro 2016 squad in the summer and start three of the four matches in the competition.
Welshman Ben Davies has been filling in at left-back in the absence of Rose through injury, with the pair set to compete once again for a starting position this season.
