A talented midfielder, who attracted the attentions of Liverpool, Newcastle United and Chelsea, signed for Spurs in the summer of 2007, when they agreed a compensation package with Leeds United for their input in developing him.
Rose was one of the players that Chelsea wanted to sign, along with Tom Taiwo and Michael Woods, which resulted in a complaint being made to the FA about Chelsea's approach for the youngsters. While Taiwo and Woods decided to depart for the Premiership club, Danny stayed with Leeds.
However, coming to the end of his scholarship with the club, he made it clear that he intended to move on and his services were much sought after. Spurs persuaded him to come to White Hart Lane with rumours that he might become an immediate part of the first team squad, following in the footsteps of his former club-mate Aaron Lennon.
On the short size, but his left-footedness, pace and energy make him a handful wide in midfield or in attack. He is also an aggressive player, who is a tackling midfielder with a creative side.
Went on loan in March 2009 to Watford seeking some first team action to get him accustomed to the physical side of the competitive game. It helped him into the first team squad in pre-season and for a couple of Premier League games in 2009-10, getting a place in the side in the League Cup before moving to Peterborough United on loan until January 2010, but returned to White Hart Lane on 11th November after Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson was sacked.
Got into the Spurs match-day squad for the game against Leeds United in the FA Cup in January and made regular appearances on the bench, but his biggest impact came when he was picked to start against Arsenal at home in a must-win Premier League game and set the ground rocking with a volley from 35 yards that ripped into the net past Almunia.
His end of season form kept him in the eye of the England selectors and he won his ninth England Under-21 cap just before the start of the season, with a goal in a 2-0 win over Uzbekistan U21.
