Tottenham Hotspur's Danny Rose has revealed his wish to stay at the club until the end of his career, meaning that he'd have spent his whole senior career in North London with the Lilywhites. 

Speaking to the club's official website, the left-back mentioned Ledley King as someone he's looking to aspire to when looking back on his career, hopefully as a Tottenham legend. 

Strictly speaking, if Rose stays at Spurs until the end of his career, he won't have been a one club man, having transferred from Leeds United in 2007. 

However, having not made a single senior appearance for Leeds, he can regard Tottenham as his first professional club, one that he's been at for no less than nine years now. 

Rose wants to look back as a one club man

Asked about how he'd like to look back on his career, Rose replied; "I'd love to look back and think I'd been at a club for the whole of my career", something that the 26-year-old has a fairly good chance of doing, should he continue progressing in the next few years. 

He admitted that "you don't know what will happen in football", but revealed that he's hoping to remain in North London for "a long, long time" and hopefully "win some trophies" whilst doing so.

King is someone to aspire to 

Rose spoke candidly about Tottenham legend Ledley King during his interview, with King having made 321 competitive appearances for Spurs over a 12 year period, his only club.

Commenting "Ledley was a legend", Rose explained that, in his opinion, there are "no words to describe how Ledley was as a player and a man."

Going into more detail over King's attributes, the defender stated that he was "quiet, but a leader" and said that; "you wouldn’t believe he’d missed most of the training sessions throughout the week and yet he’d be the best player on the pitch."
