Birmingham City manager Chris Hughton has publicly declared an interest in taking Tottenham’s versatile left sided player Danny Rose on loan until the end of the season.

Hughton was at Spurs when Rose arrived from Leeds United and he sees him as a player who could help the club’s final promotion push.

“What I can tell you is he is a player we have enquired about, but I think Tottenham are keen to keep him there,” Hughton said.

When BAE was injured at the end of last season and with no natural left back in the club, Danny filled in admirably and his place in the squad as cover on the left was assured. At present, he has made 11 appearances this season, but with Spurs out of the Europa League and Harry choosing a stronger XI in the FA Cup, he may not feature again in this campaign.

So do we need Rose as cover or would it aid his football education to let old boy Chris Hughton take him on loan until the summer?



  1. I’d keep him, he’s no left winger in my opinion but I think he could be a very good prem full back in time. He has good ability and is very strong in the tackle!

  2. Overrated player. Not a left back. Would be better as a left winger, for a lower team. Would be good to loan him out, with the hope that Birmingham get him off Spurs books permanently next season. Kaboul can provide cover at left back and right back, and so can Livermore.

  3. This lad was a very exciting player but like a lot of our youngsters they suffer injury setbacks that put there development back. Danny Rose Lennon Bale Huddlestone Dawson where singed has youngsters and all have had operations and long term injuries. We must be the unluckiest club for injuries i hope our new complex site stops this jinx i believe is down too players training on a different pitch too the award winning White Heart Lane. This will cease to be the case when we move because Spurs have installed a pitch identical to the lane pitch this and the hydro pool and swimming pool should help hamstrings knees and bumps heal quicker.Huddlestone is a one off and nothing like Sandro Parker or or any other midfielder at 6ft3 two footed and contrary to believe he is one of the fastest runners at the club when he opens up.He also has some close ball skill when he needs to use it but what he has learned too do is pass in an instance with either foot with speed and backspin by hitting the ball at the bottom of its circumference. His other skills are he keeps the ball moving and he has the next pass ready before he receives the ball he can also play at the back and he has a record of not being on the losing side playing there and this is with only lining up with Woodgate once the rest have bean Bassong Kaboul Corluka and Zakora. So if he gets 100 percent fit and at the moment this looks a long way off and it could be a sad ending one ihope is wrong. If he makes it he wont have any trouble playing for Spurs and yes England. Huddlestones type of player dont come round very often that big and skilful who can shoot and pass like the Huddster get well soon Big Man.

  4. Not a huge fan of his personally, he’s always looked a bit ropey when I’ve seen him play, although he’s young and does have potential. For me, a loan move makes sense as long as we’re confident that one of the other defenders can provide cover if Benny should get injured.
