The 22-year-old, who has impressed during a season-long spell from Tottenham, has indicated a willingness to remain at the Stadium of Light.

But the change of management at the Black Cats, with Paolo Di Canio replacing Martin O'Neill, and the club's ongoing battle against the drop, has left the former England Under-21 player in an uncertain position.

"I have thought about my future," Rose told the Northern Echo.

"When Martin O'Neill was here we did speak briefly. Obviously, that's changed now and it's not the time for me to go speaking to the new manager about what he wants for next season.

"The main priority now is to have Premier League status for next year. Once that's sorted, once we're safe, I'm sure there'll be a conversation to be had.

"I know what I want to do next year, and we'll just see what happens."

Rose has been impressed by Di Canio, who has overseen two wins out of his three matches in charge so far to leave them a point away from securing their Premier League status.

"As soon as he (Di Canio) came in he told us that we were going to be fine, he guaranteed it. Obviously, it's not over yet, it's far from over. But one more win and we'll be very close.

"He's installed a lot of confidence that might have been missing a few weeks ago, and I think it's shown when we've stepped onto the pitch.

"The mood here's definitely better than it was three weeks ago."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
