Spurs exit talk denied by Rose

16th May 2018, 14:07 by Chris Rivers

Tottenham defender Danny Rose says he will be back at the club next season following reports he could be on the move this summer.

The 27-year-old has endured a difficult season in north London due to injuries and the form of fellow left-back Ben Davies, who has established himself as Mauricio Pochettino's first-choice player in that position in Rose's absence.

The former Leeds United youngster managed just seven starts this term as a result, leading to renewed speculation he could look to leave Tottenham this summer.

In the last off-season, Rose was heavily linked with a move to London rivals Chelsea and gave an explosive interview in which he said he wanted to be paid what he felt he was worth.

One year on and while Chelsea's interest appears to have waned, Manchester United are thought to be very keen on Rose as they seek to add a new left-back this summer.

When asked about leaving Tottenham and the interview he gave last year, Rose told ESPN: "I regret nothing, I didn't tell any lies. But there's no point talking about it. I like to think everyone has moved on.

"I'm here and I'm looking forward to coming back to preseason, and hopefully me and Ben [Davies] can start fresh and fight for the No. 1 position. I fancy myself against anybody in the league."

Rose went on to deny he has become injury prone since suffering knee ligament damage in January 2017 and believes he will be back to his best with a full pre-season behind him.

"Everyone seems to have this perception that I'm injury-prone or I've had a lot of injuries, and that's not the case at all," said Rose.

"I've had to bide my time getting some minutes. It's been a season where I've had to be patient and mentally positive. Even though I haven't played as much as I'd like, I feel like I've grown mentally so there are positives to take out of the season.

"I wish I could have played more, but you have two players to compete in each position and that's how I would want it at any football club."
