Danny Rose has reiterated his continued commitment to Tottenham Hotspur.

The England international has been linked with a potential move in the past three summer transfer windows but a deal has failed to materliase.

Rose has established himself as a key component of the Tottenham back four since Mauricio Pochettino took over the reins at the north London side.

The Tottenham defender has managed to see off a challenge from Wales international Ben Davies for his spot in the Spurs team.

Rose was part of the Tottenham team that suffered a 2-0 loss to Liverpool FC in the Champions League final in Madrid last term.

The Spurs full-back was left out of Pochettino’s squad for their tour of Asia during the summer.

However, Rose has reiterated that he is committed to Tottenham, adding that he enjoys working with Spurs boss Pochettino.

“I don’t need to prove myself to anybody,” Rose told the Daily Mirror.

“I have a manager at club level who knows me.

“You look at last season – I played in the quarter-final of the Champions League, I played in the semi-finals of Champions League, I played in the final.

“So I’ve got a manager there who believes in me. Then if you look at international I’ve got a manager that whenever I’ve been available for selection I’ve been chosen.

“He fully believes in me and I’m very grateful. I don’t feel I’ve got anything to prove to anybody and I feel as if I’ve done enough over the years to prove my worth.

“I obviously just want to repay everybody that’s shown faith in me and it’s been a great start to the campaign and I’m looking forward to what’s ahead.

“I guess I should be happy with maybe being up for sale and having started the first four games for Tottenham and the first England game of the campaign.”

Tottenham played out a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in their most recent Premier League fixture before the international break.

Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane gave Tottenham a 2-0 lead in the opening 40 minutes before Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang levelled for the Gunners.

Tottenham will return to Premier League action with a home clash against Crystal Palace at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs are in ninth place in the table.
