With all the talk about potential new signings at left back this week, it’s been easy to forget that Spurs already have a left sided defender at the club – albeit that Danny Rose has spent the entire season on loan at the Stadium of Light.
Rose enjoyed some positive comments when Martin O’Neill was in charge of the club but a change of manager can always change perspective in both camps.
Whatever happens, it’s clear that the player has a big decision to make in the summer but for now, he’s only concentrating on ensuring Premiership Survival in the North East.
“I have thought about my future,” Rose told the local press.
“When Martin O’Neill was here we did speak briefly. Obviously, that’s changed now and it’s not the time for me to go speaking to the new manager about what he wants for next season.
“The main priority now is to have Premier League status for next year. Once that’s sorted, once we’re safe, I’m sure there’ll be a conversation to be had.”
However, Danny did admit that he has already decided on his preference.
“I know what I want to do next year, and we’ll just see what happens.”
Surely that would suggest a permanent move away from White Hart Lane but would it be a mistake to let him go?
