Tottenham defender has admitted he will consider leaving the club if the right offer comes.
Danny Rose is closing in on a comeback from a knee injury that has kept him out for six months and realises he needs to leave the club in the near future.
“At my age, and having missed six months with injury, I have been thinking about this quite a lot,” Rose told The Sun.
“I am reaching my peak and have probably only got one big contract left in me.
“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. Sorry, that’s not what I am about. I wouldn’t be happy with that. I want to win something.
“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 moved away from home [from Leeds to Tottenham] at 16.
“Yes I’ve got team-mates who have moved away from families in South Korea and Argentina, but I have been away for over ten years now and I don’t get to see my mum that often.
“I am going to make it my priority before I retire to play football up there.”
No Tottenham player earns more than £100,000 per week despite finishing in the three in the last two seasons.
Rose has admitted that any offer from other clubs that will improve his current salary might see him leave the club, he also called on the club to increase the salaries of the players.
“My short-term focus is to get back to playing like last year and if I do that the long-term will take care of itself.
“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.
“One thing is for sure, I know my worth and I will make sure I get what I am worth. I am not playing as well as I have done not to get paid what I think I am worth.
“In any walk of life, if you think you are worth a certain amount, why settle for less? I am not that person.
“If I get to levels I reached last season, and this goes out to everybody – I will make sure I get what I am worth. I don’t know how much longer I might have at this level. I’m not going to be stupid enough not to try and get the most out of it, medals, trophies and salary.
“Anyone who thinks this is primarily for money, that is not the case. But I know what I am worth.
“As with everyone else in my team, in my opinion, I am worth more than I am getting. I am not speaking on behalf of other players, but that is my view.”
