Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose urges club to sign big name players

Tottenham have seen their lack of transfer activity questioned from inside their own camp of late, with England global Danny Rose admitting that he expected more from the club.

Tottenham allowed Kyle Walker to leave for Manchester City for a fee which could rise to £50 million, whilst Nabil Bentaleb, Clinton N'Jie and Federico Fazio have also departed on permanent deals. The 27-year-old also urged the club, which is yet to make a summer signing, to buy big-name players - and "not players you have to Google".

"Everybody was praising the talent of this squad, the understanding between players, young players".

His apology came hot on the heels of a number of reports claiming that Rose's departure could provide a mass exodus of Tottenham's best players, who would all stand to earn considerably more away from north London. "I don't think it's a matter to joke about because with some of the worldwide players today, maybe one or two years ago, none of us knew them very well".

"When we signed players like Eric Dier, nobody knew, or Dele Alli who was playing in League One".

"And when I first arrived here [in England], people wanted to know who Mauricio Pochettino [was] too".

Danny Rose wants to force a move, or a significant wage increase at Spurs, and he is going about it in the most effective manner.

"I said before and I am not hiding anything, I'm not happy...but I know we are in this position and we will try to improve until the end of the transfer window, with the players that we can get".

"I've never seen him be upset about the (lack of) signings either around the players or around the training ground".

Neville worked with Rose while he was a coach with England and has seen the way he has developed under Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino. I need Jesus to work a little. When you see the team so relaxed and so calm and focused to prepare for the game on Sunday that is the most important thing for me to feel.

"I think the team are very united".

Asked if he could influence what the players are paid, Pochettino said: "I'm not involved in negotiation, no". You reflect upon people's character by what they do and how they behave.
