Young full-back admits he wants to stay on Wearside.
Tottenham loanee Danny Rose says he would like to remain at Sunderland on a permanent basis.
The 22-year-old joined the Black Cats on a season-long deal on transfer deadline day and made his debut in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool this weekend.
Rose arrived at Spurs as a highly-regarded left-sider from Leeds but struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane, starting just 9 times in the league in the past two seasons.
The England under-21 and Team GB international has now confirmed he would like to remain at the Stadium of Light.
“If there was a chance that I could move here permanently, I’d snatch it with both hands,” he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.
“Nothing has been said of that kind. I’m just here on loan for the season and anything after that would be a bonus.
“The gaffer just asked me to come here on loan and said I’d play more games here than I would at Spurs which is right.
“I’ve just got to take it game by game and see where it takes me.
“I had interest from a couple of clubs, but once I saw the signings that Sunderland had made, it was a no-brainer and with being closer to my family as well, that helps.
“Adam Johnson has come from Man City. He could have gone to a host of Premier League clubs, but he came here.
“Louis Saha I was with last season and they paid big money for Steven Fletcher. It just shows Sunderland’s intent for the season.”
Rose is absence is already being felt by Spurs, who played right-back Kyle Naughton out of position on the left against Reading on Sunday.
Naughton is set to deputise for the injured Benoit Assou-Ekotto, who is facing a month on the sidelines.
