It's bye bye Benny now

Danny Rose has penned a new 5-year-deal to stay at Tottenham giving the club two young left-backs to share the 54 or so games Spurs will be laying next season.

Danny Rose signs a new contract

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.

Spurs had made it clear he would be offered a new contract and despite rumours that he was unhappy have convinced him to sign.Mauricio Pochettino can now get to work on him in earnest and hopefully he will be one of the players who shows improvement. The signing of someone to play left side and assist with defensive duties will see far more solid performances from him, just as we saw early last season.

While Rose stays it must be bye bye Benny now.
