According to Jack Pitt-Brooke of the Independent, Danny Rose could stay at Tottenham next season if he’s handed an extended contract. After his infamous interview with The Sun, the 28-year-old was out-of-favour in 2017/18 which led to him having an uncertain future last summer. Rose could now commit to a deal past 2021 – the expiration date of his existing contract.

He came into the 2018/19 as Tottenham’s second-choice left-back, having made just 10 Premier League appearances the previous season. Ben Davies was preferred by Mauricio Pochettino and was in much better form than Rose, but the England international worked hard to turn things around.

The left-back made 37 appearances last season and started every Champions League game from the quarter-finals to the final – playing 432 minutes from a possible 450. Rose looked nailed on to leave Tottenham in the past when Manchester United were lining up a £50m deal in 2017, but he could now end his career with the Lilywhites.

His last contract extension came in 2016, but he now appears willing to sign potentially his last big contract at Tottenham. The news also means Mauricio Pochettino won’t need to strengthen at left-back this summer.
