Danny Rose: Will return to Spurs for the 2013/14 season

The 22-year-old left-sider is on a season-long loan at the Stadium of Light from Spurs, and he has made a big impression on Wearside.

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill had already revealed his desire to sign Rose on a permanent basis, but that option has now been ruled out.

"Completely impossible," said Villas-Boas when asked if he would allow Rose to leave on a permanent deal.

"We have big expectations for him in the future. Our idea is that he comes back to Tottenham next year.

"We appreciate what he's been doing over here and it's been a great experience.

"He's been extremely well managed. We can't give away a player of his quality."

Sunderland have, though, been boosted by the news that Rose will not be recalled in January.

"Danny is a great talent, it's encouraging that it seems he will stay with us until the end of the season," said O'Neill.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
