Andros Townsend and Danny Rose have both impressed in their current loan spells at QPR and Sunderland respectively, but are they good enough to break into the Tottenham starting line up?
In a position that Andre Villas-Boas has tinkered with throughout the current season, left back Danny Rose must surely be in the Portuguese’s plans. Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Kyle Naughton and Jan Vertonghen have all had a go at filling the position but it seems AVB can't pick a regular out of the trio.
Rose, however, possesses a lot of the attributes needed to be successful in the position. Speed, strength and positional awareness are all qualities the full-back has shown. At left back, Jan Vertonghen had displayed positional awareness and strength, Kyle Naughton speed and Assou-Ekotto strength.
Rose, however, seems like a well-rounded player and could fit nicely into villas-Boas' plan of action in a position where he is currently undecided on.
Likewise, Andros Townsend has been the shining light in a floundering QPR squad. Townsend joined the struggling outfit when loaned out in January and has shown the flair, creativity and fluidity which Spurs sometimes lack.
There have been calls for Chairman Daniel Levy to get the cheque book out for a new creative midfielder in the summer at White Hart Lane, but Townsend could fill the void nicely.
The attacking midfielder has scored two goals in eight appearances for the West Londoners and will want to test his credentials in a squad currently vying for a Champions League berth. It won't take much more for the Lilywhites to reject further loan or permanent move offers in the summer either, having gained a lot of attention since his temporary move across London.
