Man Utd target Danny Rose ready to quit Spurs and head north

Tottenham defender Danny Rose has revealed he wants to “play up north” before his career finishes and would consider offers to leave the club.

The Yorkshire-born 27-year-old, who has been sidelined with a knee injury for six months, has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea this summer.

Tottenham have not made a major signing during the transfer window and have seen Rose’s fellow full-back Kyle Walker join Premier League title rivals Manchester City.

And while Rose, who has a contract until 2021 with Spurs, has stressed he is not looking to leave just yet, admits he would discuss a potential move with the club if an offer came in.

“I am reaching my peak and have probably only got one big contract left in me,” the England defender told The Sun.

“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.

“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 have been away for over 10 years now and I don’t get to see my mum that often.

“I’m not saying I want out, but if something came to me that was concrete, I’d have no qualms about voicing my opinions to anyone at the club.”

Rose on Walker exit
Rose revealed he hopes Spurs make a couple of signings – “not players you have to Google and say, ‘Who’s that?’ I mean well-known players” – and called Walker’s departure “a big blow”.
The defender also expects a pay rise when he negotiates his next contract.
He added: “I know my worth and I will make sure I get what I am worth. I don’t know how much longer I might have at this level.
“Anyone who thinks this is primarily for money, that is not the case. But I know what I am worth.”
