Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose says that he would have "no qualms" about leaving the club for a Premier League rival this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has admitted that he would have "no qualms" about leaving the club for a Premier League rival.

The 27-year-old has been linked with Chelsea and Manchester United already this summer, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is adamant that he will not be sold, having already lost Kyle Walker to Manchester City.

Rose has not played since January due to a serious knee injury but is closing in on a return and, in an interview with The Sun, the England international revealed that he has used his time on the sidelines to contemplate his future.

"At my age, and having missed six months with injury, I have been thinking about this quite a lot," he said in the interview, which the newspaper claims that he requested. "I am reaching my peak and have probably only got one big contract left in me.

"Time is running out and I do want to win trophies. I don't want to play football for 15 years and not have one trophy or one medal. Sorry, that's not what I am about. I wouldn't be happy with that. I want to win something.

"My short-term focus is to get back to playing like last year and if I do that the long term will take care of itself. I'm not saying I want out, but if something came to me that was concrete, I'd have no qualms about voicing my opinions to anyone at the club."

Rose, who has just celebrated 10 years with Spurs, signed a new five-year deal last autumn keeping him with the club until 2021.
