Andre Villas-Boas keen for Danny Rose to return to Tottenham after Sunderland loan
The full-back has spent the season on Wearside
Tuesday 30 April 2013
Andre Villas-Boas wants Danny Rose snub a potential move to Sunderland and return to Tottenham next season.
Rose is a contender for Sunderland's player of the year after he put in a series of impressive displays during a season-long loan at the Stadium of Light.
The 22-year-old has made 27 appearances for the Black Cats after slotting in to the first XI at left-back and last night he opened his scoring account for the club in their 6-1 defeat at Aston Villa.
Rose says he will make a decision on his future at the end of the season and he has hinted recently that he would like to stay at the Wearside club.
But it is understood by Press Association Sport that Spurs boss Villas-Boas has told Rose he wants him back at White Hart Lane next term.
Left-back has been a problem area for the Portuguese this term. Villas-Boas has often played Kyle Naughton and Jan
Vertonghen as makeshift left-backs as Benoit Assou-Ekotto has struggled at times to regain the consistency he had shown in previous seasons.
It remains to be seen whether Rose will want to come back to Spurs,
This is the fourth time Rose has been out on loan and he has only made eight Barclays Premier League starts for the north London club since he signed from Leeds in 2007.
