Report: Danny Rose reveals where he will play after Tottenham
By Harry Sykes
Danny Rose has said that he is more motivated by trophies and medals than money, but has also revealed that he will play up north after he finishes his Spurs career.
In a revealing interview with the Sun Rose, 27, has lifted the lid on what drives him and also where he sees his career progressing if he leaves Spurs.
He also has also claimed that he and his Tottenham teammates are not paid what they should be.
“Time is running out and I do want to win trophies. I don’t want to play football for 15 years and not have one trophy or one medal,” Rose said.
“Sorry, that’s not what I am about. I wouldn’t be happy with that. I want to win something.

“I will say this too — I will play up north. I don’t know exactly when, but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere.
“I moved away from home (from Leeds to Spurs) at 16.
“Yes I’ve got team-mates who have moved away from families in South Korea and Argentina, but I have been away for over ten years now and I don’t get to see my mum that often.
“I am going to make it my priority before I retire to play football up there.”
Rose claims that he has one more big contract in him, and Spurs fans will be hoping that this is with the north London club.
Rose has been linked with a move away from the club this summer, and while the Evening Standard reported that he was flattered with the latest link with Manchester United, they also claim Spurs are set to turn down any offers this summer.
However, if Spurs are going to capture Rose on his one last big contract, they will need to pay significantly more than the £65k-a-week he is on at the moment.
“One thing is for sure — I know my worth and I will make sure I get what I am worth,” said Rose in the Sun.
“I am not playing as well as I have done not to get paid what I think I am worth.”
Rose joined Tottenham from the Leeds youth ranks in 2007 for £900k, and has since been loaned out to clubs like Watford, Bristol City and Sunderland.
He has been a mainstay in the Spurs side since 2013 and has made a total of 144 appearances, scoring an impressive 10 goals and adding 21 assists.
He is also England’s fist-choice left-back and has won 12 caps for his country.
Rose is currently injured and will miss the start of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign.
