Tottenham are ready to knock back interest in Danny Rose after Harry Kane waved away an offer from the Chinese Super League, reports the London Evening Standard.
The striker was approached about a move to the Far East, but talks never even reached the stage of wages as he showed no interest in the switch.
Shanghai SIPG, managed by former Lilywhites boss Andre Villas-Boas, are the club in question, and they still haven’t given up hope on Rose.
Yet, Spurs have insisted he won’t be sold at any price, rebuffing China, Paris Saint-Germain, and the two Manchester clubs, although it’s not thought any of them had made a formal offer.
The defender himself must be aware of the role Mauricio Pochettino has played in his development, and that is set to continue further now that he has him playing even higher up the pitch as a wing-back.
In AVB’s only full season at White Hart Lane, both Rose and Kane were on loan, so it’s unlikely they have any particular affinity with the Portuguese.
