Tottenham Hotspur full-back Danny Rose reckons he could be sold this summer because of his age, after seeing his name once again linked with a move away from White Hart Lane.
The 28-year-old has consistently been one of the names linked with a move away from Tottenham over the last few years, ever since the England international publicly criticised the clubs transfer policies in a controversial interview with The Sun in 2017.
Speaking after featuring for England on Sunday afternoon in the UEFA Nations League third-place playoff, Rose admitted that his future at the North London outfit was uncertain, while once again referencing Spurs lack of signings.
“It’s been really good, and I don’t know what the future hold’s now,” Rose told Sky Sports.
“I’m looking forward to a break and if I’m back at Tottenham next season, great, and if not, great! We’ll just have to wait and see.
“On a whole, I’m proud of what I’ve done individually and I’m over the moon about what the club has achieved as well because there have been some difficulties, you know, no signings, playing at Wembley…
“So I think the club and the players have shown great character and we’re in a good position for next season now and we’ll be raring to go because the final in Madrid was an unbelievable experience and one I’d love to experience again.”
Asked to clarify his comments about his Spurs future, Rose said that his age could see him ‘shipped on’
“It’s not about regular first team football. I know my age, I know how the club is ran in terms of if you get to a certain age and they might look to ship you on,” he replied.
“It’s been no secret that my name has been mentioned quite a few times in terms of players moving on, so I’ll be sitting tightly now for the next few weeks and seeing what happens, and either way, I’m prepared.”
