Tottenham defender Danny Rose has said he would consider offers to leave the club and wants to “play up north” before the end of his career.
The Yorkshire-born 27-year-old, who has been sidelined with a knee injury for six months, has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea this summer.
Tottenham have not made a major signing during the transfer window and have seen Rose’s fellow full-back Kyle Walker join Premier League title rivals Manchester City.
“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,” he said.
“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 have been away for over 10 years now and I don’t get to see my mum that often.
“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 revealed he hopes Spurs make a couple of signings – “not players you have to Google and say, ‘Who’s that?’ I mean well-known players” – and called Walker’s departure “a big blow”.
