Yesterday, we looked at reports suggesting that Tottenham’s Danny Rose would be leaving the club next month with Sunderland a likely destination. Danny had impressed during his loan spell in the North East where he developed as an attacking left full back and by all accounts had become something of a fans’ favourite at the Stadium of Light.

However, stories today are highlight favourable comments made by Andre Villas-Boas suggesting that the player still has a future at his parent club.

“He has had a great season in Sunderland. We are aware of it. He’s a player we have to consider,” AVB said.

The current occupant of the left back slot – Benoit Assou-Ekotto – has been through a mixed campaign and never quite seemed to discover his best form after injury. There could well be a vacancy in that position for 2013-14 but is Danny Rose the man to take it?



  1. Danny is certainly a fans favourite here at Sunderland – he is developing well but maybe not good enough for Spurs first choice left back ? I would love for Sunderland to sign him up , but wish him well whatever the outcome – a top pro with a good future ahead of him.

  2. hello

    that was a very good and fair comment. i think danny will be one of these guys at spurs who are in and out of the team. which he has stated he will not stand for. i think an ideal situation for spurs would be to have BAE, Rose and Fyers rotating but i cant see danny putting up with it.

  3. I think BAE will depart. Tremendous contribution over the last few years but I feel he’s past his best now. Fryers and Rose to contest the left back slot.

  4. Not sure avb really rates bae, not on this season’s performances anyway. Seems bae might be a similar case to ade – only ‘arry got the best out of them both.
    There is room for both though, for cover and cup games.

  5. Spurs are short of left-sided players, even with the return of Townsend, now that Bale has been moved central. If Rose competes with BAE for LB (getting at least the Europa and Cup games, plus subs) and with Townsend and Dempsey for LW, he should at least get enough games to keep him contented for next season. I expect Fryers will spend next season on loan, that seems to be Spurs’ model.
