Rose signs new long-term deal

Win-or-Bust – Can Johor Darul Ta’zim beat Shandong Luneng to keep their AFC Champions League hopes alive?

Danny Rose has expressed his desire to finish his career at White Hart Lane after, penning a new long-term contract with Tottenham Hotspur.

The 26-year-old has established himself as the club's first choice left-back over the past few seasons, and has been rewarded for his form with a new five-year deal.

Having been signed from Leeds United in 2007, Rose became a cult hero when he scored a sublime goal against Arsenal on his Premier League debut in 2010.

He has now amassed 126 appearances, scoring nine goals and was also named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year for 2015-16 after becoming a regular in the England team.

Speaking to the club's official website, a delighted Rose revealed he couldn't be happier at Spurs.

He said: "Anything can happen in football but right now, I’m so happy. I’m settled here. I’m slowly turning into a southerner! I’ll be here until I’m 31 and at the moment, I couldn’t wish for anything more than to play for Spurs for the rest of my career."

He added: "Everyone knows that the Club is going in the right direction and I’m over the moon that I’ve earned a new contract that will keep me here until I’m an old man!

"I don’t want to blow my own trumpet but I feel I’ve played well in the last 18 months and if I’m happy off the pitch, that transfers to the pitch.

"It helps when you are playing with 11 of your friends and under a great manager as well and the environment we train in is top-class."

Rose picked up a hamstring injury on international duty and has missed Spurs' last four matches.

He added: "It’s just a pain I’m injured at the moment. It was hard listening to the result coming through at Stoke (and not being involved) and hard watching the Champions League game last week as well. The quicker I can get back on the pitch and contribute to the team, the better."

Rose becomes the sixth Tottenham player to sign a new contract in recent times, following deals for Tom Carroll, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen, Harry Winks and Dele Alli.
