Cape Town - Tottenham left-back Danny Rose has underlined his intentions to remain with the Premier League club for the rest of his career.

The England international, who learnt his trade at Leeds United before switching to Spurs as a teenager, has been with the side since 2007.

Speaking to the club's website, he said: "I’m 26 now and starting to think about if I want to finish my career here and I’d love to do that.

"There won’t be many players able to say that they’ve been at a club for X amount of years."

Rose admits he would love to follow in the footsteps of Ledley King, who also came up through the ranks at Tottenham - before injuries curtailed his playing days.

"Ledley is a legend. When you see him with the players, some will ask ‘what was he like?’ and there really are no words to describe how Ledley was as a player and as a man."

He added: "He was quiet, but a leader. I saw the pain he had to go through to be out there on a Saturday. You wouldn’t believe he’d missed most of the training sessions throughout the week and yet he’d be the best player on the pitch.

"I’d love to be able to look back at the end of my career and think I’d been at a club for the whole of my career. That’s the plan.

"You don’t know what will happen in football but that’s the plan, I want to be here for a long, long time and I hope while I’m here I get to win trophies as well."

Rose is currently the club's longest-serving player, making 126 appearances in all competitions during a nine-year stay at White Hart Lane.
