Tottenham defender distances himself from mega-money move
Tottenham Hotspur fullback Danny Rose has poured cold water on rumours linking him with a big-money move to the Chinese Super League, per the Daily Star.
Towards the end of the January transfer window, the 26-year-old was heavily linked with a move to the Far East, where former Premier League stars Oscar, Odion Ighalo and Ramires currently reside.
But the England man, who has been one of Spurs’ standout performers over the past couple of years, denied any interest in a transfer.
“I have a relationship with my manager where I can go to speak to him, and I have been to him about those reports,” he told the Evening Standard. “We spoke about a lot of things.
“I am not playing football just for the fun of it. I want to win things.
“I have seen what’s been around in the last couple of months. I am over the moon considering what people’s opinions of me were three or four years ago.
“When I am 34 or 35, I want to look back and see that I have won something. That is the next step for this team, and to do it we have to keep everyone for as long as possible.

“The best piece of advice the manager has given me was something he gave me a couple of weeks ago: Just enjoy your football, which is what I am going to do. I am not going to be distracted by anything else.”
