SUNDERLAND’S prospects of signing Danny Rose are set to be dashed according to the Sunday People, which predicts the England Under 21 man will be promoted to first-choice left-back at White Hart Lane.

The paper says that Benoit Assou-Ekotto’s much-trailed move to Turkish club Fenerbahce is on the verge of completion.

And it claims Spurs’ boss Andre Villas-Boas has decided that once the Cameroon international departs, Rose will be given the chance to prove himself in the first-team next season.

That remains to be seen of course.

The Echo understands that Spurs have been exploring the possibility of recruiting another top left-back from Italy, which could still leave the door open to Rose leaving on a loan again in the summer, or even on a permanent.

Rose suggested at the end of a season-long loan at Sunderland – where he got regular first-team Premier League football for the first time – that he would consider a permanent move to the Stadium of Light.

However if Spurs boss AVB does offer him regular first-team football at White Hart Lane, there’s no doubt the former Leeds United defender would prefer to stay with the Londoners.
