Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has assured defender Danny Rose that he has a future at the club despite his attempts to sign a left-back over the summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old spent last season out on loan at Sunderland and having returned to White Hart Lane is now likely to be first choice at left-back after Benoit Assou-Ekotto joined QPR on loan.
Spurs failed in their attempts to pick up Villas-Boas' preferred choice full-back, Fabio Coentrao, from Real Madrid and Rose says he has been assured of his place by the Portuguese manager.
“I spoke to the manager about the left-back situation and he assured me that if he still wanted a change, he’d come to speak to me first, which is great,” said Rose.
“I wasn’t looking to go anywhere just yet. I’m enjoying the run in the team and long may it continue.”
Rose arrived at at White Hart Lane in 2007 and make his mark with a breathtaking strike on his senior debut against Arsenal in April 2010.
This season will be the first of his short career when Rose can realistically expect to nail down a first team spot, presenting him with a great opportunity.
The Spurs squad is much changed from last season with seven new players arriving at the club following the world-record sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
"I don’t think anyone can hold a grudge against him leaving. I wish him all the best and I hope he enjoys the occasion in Madrid," he said.
