Danny Rose has revealed that he would definitely be interested in making his loan move from Tottenham to Sunderland a permanent deal.
The 22-year-old – who burst on to the scene at Spurs in 2010 when he scored a magnificent volley against north London rivals Arsenal just ten minutes into his league debut – managed just eight starts over the last three seasons for the White Hart Lane outfit, and therefore agreed to join the Black Cats to kick-start his progression.

Rose, who played his first game for Martin O'Neill's men in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday, stated he would jump at the chance of joining the club full-time, but insisted it is an option that has not been discussed.
"If there was a chance that I could move here permanently, I'd snatch it with both hands," he told the Sunderland Echo.
"Nothing has been said of that kind. I'm just here on loan for the season and anything after that would be a bonus.
"The gaffer just asked me to come here on loan and said I'd play more games here than I would at Spurs which is right.
"I've just got to take it game by game and see where it takes me."
Sunderland had a busy summer transfer window - signing the likes of Louis Saha, Steven Fletcher and Adam Johnson - and the England U-21 international, whose loan move to the Stadium of Light is his fourth temporary one since joining Spurs, indicated that the new recruits made his decision to join the club easy.
He added: "I had interest from a couple of clubs, but once I saw the signings that Sunderland had made, it was a no-brainer and with being closer to my family as well, that helps.
"Adam Johnson has come from Man City. He could have gone to a host of Premier League clubs, but he came here.
"Louis Saha I was with last season and they paid big money for Steven Fletcher. It just shows Sunderland's intent for the season.”
