Sunderland Snap-Up Tottenham Winger Danny Rose On Season-Long Loan

Left-sided youngster part of deadline-day exodus at Spurs.

Tottenham’s Danny Rose will join Sunderland on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old can play at either full-back or as a winger and his versatility will add options to Martin O’Neill’s squad.

Rose often deputised at left-back at Spurs for Benoit Assou-Ekotto but has found his first-team opportunities limited at White Hart Lane.

His move to the Stadium of Light will provide him with an opportunity to play regularly in the Premier League.

Rose will fill the void at left-back which has been created by Kieran Richardson’s impending move to Fulham.

The England Under 21 international was part of Stuart Pearce’s Team GB squad for this summer’s Olympic Games.

Rose will become another player to head out the door at White Hart Lane after Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has deemed the player surplus to requirements.

A promising youngster, Rose has been used as a back-up player at Spurs to regular starters Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Gareth Bale on the left-side, and will now hope to establish himself as a starter at Martin O’Neill’s Sunderland.

Rose was selected by Stuart Pearce for Team GB at this summer’s Olympic Games and has 21 caps for the England under-21 side but the player is most famed for the wonder-strike he scored for Spurs against bitter North London rivals Arsenal in 2010.

His departure may have Spurs fans wondering whether they will have enough defensive cover, with Assou-Ekotto the only natural left-back in the first team.

New signing Jan Vertonghen is able to cover the position if required however, while Gareth Bale began his time at Spurs as a left-back before being pushed further up the field by former boss Harry Redknapp.

With Spurs renowned for their activity on the final day of the transfer window, Rose’s move to join up with the Black Cats is unlikely to be the last deal pushed through before the midnight deadline, as AVB remains keen to bring in the likes of Brazilian winger Willian from Shaktar Donestsk and Joao Moutinho of Porto.
