We can announce that Danny Rose has joined Sunderland on a season-long loan.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) August 31, 2012
As we discussed earlier, this is a great move for Rose and Spurs. Now that the Black Cats have sold Kieran Richardson, Rose will have a great opportunity to playing regularly on the left at the Stadium of Light and after a year spent primarily on the bench at Spurs, regular playing time is vital.
After this season, Tottenham will have a much better idea of what they have in Rose. Maybe he isn't going to be in the club's plans going forward, but at least they will know then. And if he shows well then he can either come back to the club ready to earn some time with Spurs or he'll have boosted his value so Tottenham can get a nice chunk of change in a sale.
