Danny Rose says he will only leave Tottenham when his contract ends despite the club’s hierarchy wanting him to leave.
The left-back was made available for transfer and left off the club’s pre-season tour to Asia as his time with Spurs looked to be over.
Yet he has since started nine of Tottenham’s Premier League games this season and was also handed an England start in the Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria.
“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.”
