Sunderland loanee eyes permanent stay

Sunderland left-back Danny RoseDanny Rose has stated his desire to make his move to Sunderland a permanent one.

The England under-21 international made his Premier League debut for the club in the Black Cats 1-1 draw with Liverpool but after just one appearance is ready to commit to the club.

Martin O’Neill brought in Rose as a replacement for Kieran Richardson who left for Fulham, but the season-long loan deal has no clause to make the transfer permanent and it is unclear at this stage whether Rose is in O’Neill’s long term plans.

Speaking to The Sunderland Echo, the 22-year-old said: “If there is a chance I could move here permanently I’d snatch it with both hands. Nothing has been said of that kind. I’m just here for the season 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.

“Adam Johnson has come here from [Manchester] 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.”
