Danny Rose has expressed his delight after signing a new five-year contract with Tottenham, the Premier League club have announced.
The 26-year-old left-back, who has committed his future to Spurs until 2021, moved to White Hart Lane from Leeds nine years ago and has since made 93 league appearances, scoring seven goals, including a stunner in the North London derby against Arsenal in 2010.
Rose has been out of Mauricio Pochettino’s side since August due to a hamstring injury but could return on Saturday when Tottenham face Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.
“Everyone knows the club is heading in the right direction and I’m over the moon to sign up with the club and stay here until I’m an old man,” he told Spurs TV.
“It’s been a good couple of weeks with Dele (Alli), Eric (Dier), Christian (Eriksen) and Harry Winks all signing new contract.”
Speaking to Spurs TV, he said: “We all want to go out and prove that last season was not a one-off with us finishing third.
“Right now I am so happy, I am settled here, I am slowly turning into a southerner so I hope I can stay for a very long time and see where it takes me.
“At the minute I wouldn’t wish for anything more than to play for Spurs for the rest of my career.”
