Young left-back happy to be back at Spurs.
Tottenham defender Danny Rose says he is glad to be back at the club after a year out on loan, and is excited by the new arrivals that have come in this summer, according to Sky Sports.
The 23-year-old looks like becoming first choice left-back under Andre Villas-Boas this season, after impressing in his loan spell with Sunderland last term, and believes the squad now looks in good shape to achieve its aim of reaching the Premier League top four.
As well as bringing in big names such as Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen, Spurs were linked with a move for a new left-back, following the decision to allow Benoit Assou-Ekotto to leave the club on loan.
However, no further additions came in, and Rose looks to have cemented his place as the club’s starting left-back, and has spoken of his joy at being back at White Hart Lane this season.
“I spoke to the manager about the left-back situation and he assured me that if he still wanted a change, he’d come to speak to me first, which is great,” Rose told the London Evening Standard.
“I wasn’t looking to go anywhere just yet. I’m enjoying the run in the team and long may it continue.
“You look through the whole team and you see that you’ve got two strong players in each position and it’s great,” added Rose. “We’ve got a very good squad.
“We’ve given ourselves a good platform and we’ll take it from there, although it’s too early to guess where we might finish. The aim is to finish in the top four.”
Spurs narrowly missed out on the Champions League places last year, finishing just one point behind north London rivals Arsenal in a race that went down to the final day of the season.
Their failure to make the top four saw star player Gareth Bale leave the club for Real Madrid, and it was thought that Fabio Coentrao could move in the other direction as part of the deal.
