"I am reaching my peak and probably only have one more big contract left in me".

Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose would reportedly favour a move to Chelsea over Manchester United and will push for a move to west London if the Blues come calling.

"I acknowledge that the timing and manner of what I said was ill-judged", said Rose, who is recovering from knee surgery.

The Argentine was more relaxed about the club's lack of activity in the transfer market ahead Tottenham's first game of the season at promoted Newcastle United on Sunday.

The aptly named Kyle Walker-Peters has been touted as that possible replacement, but despite impressing in the preseason, the 20-year-old is still yet to play a single minute of senior football. Now, everyone knows, we have to go to Wembley and play.

However, Benitez is not convinced Mauricio Pochettino's team will be distracted.

He has done so well in getting these young players to believe in his footballing philosophy and getting them to play in such a high-intensity style both in and out of possession.

"I don't think he could be negative around the team, because I would say it would only bring the team down".

Spurs are going into the new campaign looking to improve on last season's second placed finish, while the Magpies are aiming for survival.

Tottenham have yet to recruit any players this summer but Pochettino reassured fans there will be new arrivals. Lamela is a player who divides Spurs supporters like no other, but even his fiercest critics agree that he's no good to anyone in his current state. He cleaned up his act last season, and was a joy to watch. He isn't interested in adding mediocre talent, instead he wants players with the ability to challenge his very best stars for playing time.

"I mean signings like that are what we need - that's just my opinion".

In an interview with the Sun, Rose revealed that he would be open to a move away and that he doesn't earn enough for a player of his quality, but this was not Spurs' only problem.

"It was good for him to apologise".

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Davies, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Dier, Wimmer, Wanyama, Shashoua, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Sissoko, Onomah, Lesniak, Winks, Edwards, Son, Janssen, Kane, Walker-Peters.

"If you look at the history of Tottenham in the last few years, we always spend at the end of the window".
