That probably spells the end now for 30-year-old Cameroon international Benoît Assou-Ekotto, who like Tom Carroll had a poor season on loan at QPR last season. He only has one year left on his contract so its safe t assume Spurs will not look to off load him and bring in a couple of million.
There were several clubs interested in Rose, Southampton, West Ham, Hull City and Crystal Palace but he has chosen to stick with Tottenham and battle for a place. That is an attitude to applaud whether you rate the guy or not.
