England international Danny Rose has admitted that he could have parted ways with Tottenham Hotspur shortly after his participation at the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Rose acknowledged that he was considering his future with the north London side last summer and even made contact with one of his suitors before the move failed to materialise, he said: “I am enjoying my football now. After the World Cup there was talk of me moving on. I was speaking to another club which obviously Tottenham know about but it didn’t happen. I called the manager after the World Cup and he just said to me that I was welcome to stay but said I would have to get my head down. At the minute the manager is bringing me on at left midfield and central midfield. I still feel like a really valuable member of the team.”
