Rose won't return to sit on Spurs bench.
Danny Rose has again spoken of his desire to be a first team regular and therefore hints as a permanent move away from Tottenham in the summer.
Rose who has had an excellent season with Sunderland, has stated a love for Spurs, however he feels the need to play week in week out, if he is to fulfil his international ambitions and no doubt, continue to develop as a player. Rose will be 23 at the start of next season, and when we consider that he has still to play fifty senior domestic games, you can perhaps understand his wanting to play regularly and though it may hurt my club in losing a good player, I actually admire his stance of putting playing football at the top of his list of priorities.
Speaking of his situation, Rose told Sky Sports: 'I honestly do not know what will happen next season. I do love Tottenham, they have done a lot for me over the years, I will be forever grateful for the stage I am at now. It's hugely down to them.
'But I am not prepared to go back to sit on the bench and watch other people play football. I've done that enough.
'I've got friends progressing into the England team and being in the squads. I'd like to think one day I'll have a shot at doing that.
'I'll only get that when I'm playing week-in, week-out, and I'm doing that here. I'm enjoying it here and I love being back up north.
'Nothing has been discussed with the management here or the management there about what's going to happen next season.
'I want to reiterate I will not be looking to sit on somebody else's bench again.'
Should Spurs wish to keep Danny at WHL, it will surely take some major encouragement that he has a future at the club and perhaps even mean that they look to cash in on BAE, who will be 29 in March, and it is still unclear how highly AVB rates Benni and similarly, he might even consider selling both and bringing in his own left back and was recently linked with his former Porto player Alvaro Pereira, though that could of course have been media rubbish..
