Spurs boss impressed with Rose’s performances for Sunderland.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas may still consider giving a first team place to left-back Danny Rose next season, after the youngster impressed on loan for Sunderland this year.
Speaking to the Daily Express, the Portuguese coach admitted Rose’s displays have given him something to think about, despite his pursuit of Inter Milan left-back Alvaro Pereira. Spurs are also said to be of several clubs watching young Southampton left-back Luke Shaw.
Benoit Assou-Ekotto is also rumoured to be leaving Spurs this summer, but Rose didn’t initially seem in line to replace him. Sunderland had hoped to keep him permanently, and Liverpool are also said to be monitoring his situation, but it now seems that he could work his way into Villas-Boas’ first team next season.
“He has had a great season in Sunderland,” said the Spurs boss. “We are aware of it. He’s a player we have to consider.
“There are decisions to be made at this club in the summer.
“We have to look to build, but we are also aware that we have to hold on to good players to improve as a club.”
The manager’s main concern this summer will be keeping hold of Gareth Bale, with the Spurs star being lined up by Real Madrid and Manchester United.
