Tottenham are confident they have reached a breakthrough with Danny Rose and that the left-back star will remain in north London this summer, according to a report.
The Mirror have claimed on their website that manager Mauricio Pochettino held “heart-to-heart” talks with the 27-year-old amid interest from both Chelsea and Manchester City alongside the player’s own outburst regarding the club’s transfer policy and wage structure.
All that meant that the England international’s future at Tottenham was thrown into doubt.
However, it would not seem that Rose will be 10 years at the club with Mirror report detailing that Pochettino told Rose “he was a valued member of the team and was part of the future he is trying to create.”
Rose made the switch to Tottenham aged just 17 in the summer of 2007 for a fee of £1million after breaking through at Leeds.
He has since played 144 times for the club in total and last season was one of his most successful despite missing almost the entirety of the second half through injury.
Football Insider verdict:
This news is great for Tottenham and will surely be received well by the north London club’s fan base. The left-back is one of the best in the Premier League in his position and he is a huge part of the Spurs team. It also goes to show that the north Londoners can still keep hold of their top players after Kyle Walker departed for Manchester City this summer and once Tottenham complete the summer window with Rose still in their ranks alongside further additions it will surely bring the feel-good factor back to the club.
