Apparently Andre Villas-Boas wants to bring back Danny Rose to WHL next season after he has had a hugely impressive season on loan to Sunderland. Rose has arguably been Sunderland’s player of the season and would appear to offer the right balance between good defensive qualities and very strong attacking instincts, as seen with his excellent goal as Villa Park last night.

Rose has previously stated that he would like to stay at Sunderland and perhaps prefer the North of England to a return south, however would that stance change should he get the chance to be Tottenham’s first choice left back next season? The reality is that playing regular football would appear to be his main priority, but also perhaps the lure of European and perhaps Champions league football, will prove a decisive factor and may also do his international ambitions the world of good, if he can play at the highest level possible in the Premiership.

Some Spurs fans remain sceptical that he is the quality of player we need to upgrade the left back position, but I believe that he has proved his ability with Sunderland and would fit very well into the Tottenham team, who like their full backs to push on and assist the attack. As a former winger, Danny has good natural attacking instincts and excellent supply, something that we have sadly lacked with BAE.
