Cape Town - Danny Rose fully expects to stay at
Tottenham Hotspur amid reported interest from Paris Saint-German ahead of the European
transfer deadline on Friday.
The 28-year-old left-back lost his place to
Ben Davies in the first team last season after picking up a knee injury during
the festive period, which kept him on the sidelines for a month.
Rose was included in England's squad for
the 2018 World Cup and made five appearances in Russia, although Davies was
once again preferred for Spurs' opening two games of the new Premier League
The Leeds youth product had been linked
with a move to Schalke earlier in the off-season, while PSG are reportedly
considering a swoop in the final days of the transfer window.
But after Rose started in the 3-0 win at
Manchester United on Monday, he revealed that Mauricio Pochettino is relying on
him to do a job for the team this term.
"The manager (Pochettino) has spoken
to us all a couple of weeks ago and said everybody starts from zero," the
"We all have to start again trying to
impress him and that's great. We all go again. I'm good. I'm not listening to the
speculation about my future.
"If I'm here past Friday, which I'm
expecting to be, which will be great, I'm looking forward to seeing what we can
achieve at the end of the season.
"Me and the manager have had a
conversation over the phone, as well as two one-hour meetings over the last
couple of weeks.
"We're both aware of the situation.
[Monday's game] was massive for me that, even though there is speculation, he
still trusts and believes in me to put me into such a massive game, a game
where he didn't need to change anything.
"For me, over the last four or five
years we've worked together, that is probably the biggest thing he has done for
me. I was so shocked in the meeting before we arrived.
"I thought there was going to be a
change, but never did I think that it was going to be me coming in."
