Danny Rose says he will run down his Spurs contract and will not leave beforehand despite the Tottenham hierarchy trying to move him on.
The England man was made available for transfer and omitted from the club’s pre-season tour to Asia with his time at Tottenham looking over.
The left-back was integrated back into the Spurs side in pre-season and he has since started nine of Tottenham’s Premier League games this season and started for England in the Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria.
And Rose, who is under contract until 2021, claims he has no intention of leaving Spurs any time soon.
“It’s pretty obvious what happened [in the summer],” Rose told the Evening Standard.
“People upstairs at Tottenham were trying to do what they were trying to do. I’ve said [to them] I’ve got 18 months left on my contract and I’m not going anywhere until my contract has finished.
“In January, you’re probably going to hear something [about my future]. I’m telling you right now that I’m not going anywhere until my contract is finished.
“[Tottenham chairman] Daniel Levy told me in the summer there was no new contract for me at Tottenham, which is fine. I respect that. We move on.
“My contract is up in 18 months’ time and I’ll leave the football club then. People [in the media] can save their time trying to get stuff ready for January about me being sold.
“Because I can tell you now: it ain’t happening. I know what people were trying to do in the summer… There were no bids — that was rubbish.”
