The Tottenham left-sider is on a season-long loan at the Stadium of Light and he made his debut in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool. And Rose admits he would jump at the chance to move to Wearside on a permanent basis.
"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.
"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."
