Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas confirmed last weekend that Rose would be allowed to complete his season-long loan at Sunderland, even if there was little chance of the left-back remaining at the Stadium of Light beyond the summer.
Danny Rose: “I spoke to the manager (Villas-Boas) on Saturday and asked him what was happening because I wanted to know myself.
“I’m very happy up north. I’m close to my family and playing every week.
“I love the staff, players and management here and I’m not looking to go back south and not play.
“I’m settled here so I wanted to know what was going on.
“He told me the plan was to stay for the full season and whatever happens after that is out of my hands. Then it’s between Sunderland and Spurs.
"I have been battling an ankle injury for the past fortnight.
“But the rest will do me good to a certain extent.
“You don’t want to take too many days off because you lose your fitness.
“But it’s been good to get my feet up for a few days because I’ve got a sore ankle at the minute.
“I obviously couldn’t play with the rules and regulations and it’s very frustrating not being able to play in a game you want to play in.
“It was a shame we conceded two sloppy goals after going into the break 1-0 up.
“But the lads have just got to forget about it. The games come thick and fast now and we’ve just got to move on.
“It was difficult for Killa, it is for any centre-half moving to a full-back position.
“He tried against Aaron Lennon, who is one of the best wingers in the league.
“But hopefully I can get back in the team tomorrow and continue the good things I’ve been doing.”
