Home-grown Rose is popular

Danny Rose is a player who has taken an immense amount of criticism but has developed into a powerful attacking full-back.

In today's game the full-back must be an attacker who can defend rather than a defender who can attack. They may sound the same thing but they are not, as the difference between Danny Rose and Ben Davies show.

If Rose is playing we are a threat down the left and he has the pace to cause problems. He scored this season against Chelsea at White Hart Lane simply because of his pace. When Ben Davis plays however that threat is diminished somewhat as he has to be more measured getting forward, lacking the pace to get back. There is precious little speed in the Spurs squad so Pochettino will not want to lose Rose to Manchester City or Chelsea, the two Premier League suitors said to be tracking him.

Manchester City struggle with having home-grown talent, they usually fill the subs bench or have them simply filling a squad place. City have Joe Hart, James Milner (only 10 completed Premier League games & a free agent in the summer), Frank Lampard (MLS bound), Gaël Clichy, Richard Wright (0 appearances) and Dedryck Boyata 91 Premier League minutes, unused sub 12 times).

Chelsea have the same issue, they buy enormous numbers of players and then simply loan them out, they either improve enough to represent the club or they are sold for a profit. Few Englishmen or home-grown players get a look in. Cesc Fàbregas, Gary Cahill and John Terry are the only home-grown players over the age of 21 in the first team squad.

Danny Rose is of course home-grown and is thus of interest, however he wants to play regular football which is a stumbling block for both sides. Target Jay Rodriguez is home-grown but would he spend most of his time out the side in the same way James Milner does. Substitute minutes to try and keep a player happy is not the same as starting Premier League games.

Both players may have a choice to make, wages or football.
