Little Point In A Loan, The New Boss Must Sell Danny Rose

After the Daily Mail reported that Danny Rose might be on his way out of Spurs on a loan deal which will see him go to Newcastle or West Brom, I can’t help but feel that a loan deal will not do any good for the 21 year old.

As a make shift left back, Danny Rose will always be remembered as the youngster who scored a wonder goal against Tottenham’s North London rivals Arsenal, which eventually turned out to be the winner and as a result, he has won a place in the heart of Tottenham.

Despite his 15 minutes of fame however, Rose has gone onto achieve very little at Spurs, failing to secure first team football but instead regular sittings on the Premier League bench.

Did a lack of first team football under Redknapp create this dilemma or was his goal against Arsenal the top of his career, even though it had hardly begun?

For me, it would be very hard for Rose to leave even though I am highly unimpressed with this inexperienced youngster. How can we expect him to take the club forward in 3 or 4 years when he is only starting six games in the whole campaign, with four of them coming from Assou-Ekotto’s fracture in the latter part of the season.

In his defence, he has stepped up on the necessary occasions and when he has played the full 90 minutes since February, Spurs have won every game, albeit the oppositions are Blackburn, Stevenage and Bolton.

Futhermore, even though he hasn’t been given the chance to play a full 90 minutes against a Premier League side (who will still be there next season), he has held his side of defence when required, playing the occasional minutes against Swansea, Liverpool and Norwich.

Finally, he has got some experience in European football, playing for the England U21’s and also playing for Spurs against Shamrock Rovers, Rubin Kazan and PAOK.

So whilst it would be beneficial for Rose to get the opportunity to play for West Brom or Newcastle, I think the new manager should judge his potential before loaning him out, or indeed looking to flog him in the transfer window.
