The summer transfer window is in full swing so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Tottenham are to hand Danny Rose a new contract…
Tottenham Hotspur are set to hand Danny Rose a bumper new contract to fend off interest from Chelsea in the England international full-back, according to the Mirror.
Rose joined Spurs from Leeds United in 2007 and following a succession of loan spells he broke in to the first team in 2011 and has now established himself as Mauricio Pochettino’s first choice left-back ahead of Ben Davies.
The 26-year-old is also now a regular in the England national team set-up and started in three out of four games during the Three Lions disastrous Euro 2016 campaign this summer.
The Mirror claim that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is set to reward Rose for his fine form with a new bumper contract extension amid interest from London rivals Chelsea.
The Blues have held a long-standing interest in Rose and reportedly tabled an official bid last summer but it was knocked back as Levy refused to do business with the Stamford Bridge outfit due to the poor relations between the two clubs.
Rose’s current deal is due to expire in 2019 but the newspaper suggests that Spurs will now offer their longest-serving player a new deal that will include a significant increase on his £35,000-a-week wage.
The full-back is one of several Tottenham stars who are in-line for new deals after their second-placed finish last season saw the north Londoners qualify for the Champions League.
Rose certainly deserves his new contract but you’d expect the likes of striker Harry Kane and midfielder Eric Dier to follow the defender in penning new deals over the coming weeks.
