Cats give Rose the chance to shine
Tottenham have allowed Danny Rose to join Sunderland on a season-long loan in a bid to aid his development as a player.
Rose joined Spurs from Leeds in 2007 and has gone onto establish himself as a regular member of the first-team squad at White Hart Lane, although opportunity in the side have been few and far between.
The 22-year-old first made his name as an attacking midfielder although in recent times he has found himself deployed a left-back by the north Londoners.
In all, the England under-21 international has made 29 appearances for Spurs in addition to previous loan spells with Watford, Peterborough United and Bristol City.
However, Rose won't be joined at the Stadium of Light by his Tottenham team-mate Jermaine Jenas, who had been set for a permanent move to the North-East.
It's understood the Black Cats' bid for the 29-year-old has broken down after discussions over the injury-hit midfielder's personal terms.
