Rose insists Spurs players are not paid enough

The England international says he is happy at White Hart Lane, but if a reasonable offer comes across, he will consider leaving the club.

Danny Rose has been linked with a number of top English clubs this summer. The player admitted he wanted to win trophies and he might consider joining another club.

The 27-year-old suffered a knee injury that took him out of the pitch for a long time, but he is closing in on his comeback.

“At my age, and having missed six months with injury, I have been thinking about this quite a lot,” he told The Sun .

“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.

“I will say this too – I will play up north. I don’t know exactly when, but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere.

“I moved away from home [from Leeds to Spurs] at 16.

“Yes I’ve got team-mates who have moved away from families in South Korea and Argentina, but I have been away for over ten years now and I don’t get to see my mum that often.

“I am going to make it my priority before I retire to play football up there.”

Danny Rose also admitted that it would be really hard for him to turn down an offer with a bigger wage package as he called upon Tottenham to increase the amount of money players receive.

“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.

“One thing is for sure – I know my worth and I will make sure I get what I am worth. I am not playing as well as I have done not to get paid what I think I am worth.

“In any walk of life, if you think you are worth a certain amount, why settle for less? I am not that person.”
