2006-2007 (Leeds Player Details)(Player Details)


Born: Doncaster: 02-07-1990

Debut: None

Height&Weight: 5'8" 11st 11lb (2009)

Rose was a product of the Leeds Academy and, after being a trainee, signed professional forms on 1st July 2006. He had already played five games for the England Under-Sixteen team, having made his debut on 25th November 2005 against Scotland and making his fifth appearance on 15th April 2006 against Tunisia. He was famously the subject of attempted poaching by Chelsea and while two Leeds players took the bait Rose snubbed Chelsea and chose to remain with Leeds. While Rose did not actually appear for United he was an unused substitute in the League Cup-tie at Elland Road against Chester City on 22nd August 2006 when only sixteen. It seemed as though it was just a matter of time before he made his first team debut. He made his England Under-Seventeens' debut on 31st July 2006 against Sweden and had added to that before he was impressive in February 2007 when he started in two of the three games in the Algarve Tournament and then played all three games in the European Under-Seventeen Championship Elite qualifying rounds, on 23rd March 2007 as Bosnia & Herzegovina were beaten 5-0 and Rose getting his first International goal. This was followed two days later by his second as he scored the only goal of the game against Azerbaijan and he took his caps to eight, three days later as England beat Serbia 2-1. He almopst doubled his England Under-Seventeen appearances when he played all five games in the European Championship Finals in Belgium in May as England were eventually beaten by Spain in the final. On 2nd May 2007 he was again on the mark for his third International goal as he got England's second goal in the twenty-fourth minute in a 2-0 win over Iceland at the Orphale Crucke Stadium in Ronse before giving way to Danny Welbeck in the sixty-third minute. There was a full game in a 1-1 draw with the host nation at Stade Luc Varenne in Tournai two days later, and England then made sure of progressing as they defeated the Netherlands by 4-2 at Stade Leburton in Tubize on 7th May. France were then beaten 1-0 at the same venue three days later with Rose again playing a full game. The final took place on 13th May 2007 at Stade Luc Varenne in Tournai and England lost by the only goal of the game as Rose was replaced by Dan Gosling in the fifty-sixth minute as he played his thirteenth and final Under-Seventeen game for England. On such a stage it was inevitable that his talents would be noticed, and sure enough Tottenham Hotspur beat off opposition from Liverpool to take Rose to White Hart Lane for a reported 1 million in July 2007, days after his seventeenth birthday. He joined other former United and England stars Paul Robinson (1.5 million) in 2004 and Aaron Lennon (1 million) in 2005, both of whom had proved bargains at such ridiculously low transfer fees. There was no doubt that Rose would follow in their footsteps. On 20th November 2007, he was in the England Under-Eighteen team that defeated Ghana. A skilful, attacking midfielder, initially hampered by a shin injury, he impressed in reserve action and featured ten times for in his first season, scoring once. His performances earned a call into the first team squad and he was on the bench for the 2-0 home win against Sunderland on 19th January 2008. A regular at England youth level, Rose was in England Under-Eighteen action as he gained his second and final game at that level as he was replaced after seventy-one minutes by Ashley Chambers and Austria were beaten 2-0 on 16th April 2008 at Victoria Park. He made his debut for the England Under-Nineteen side in Group B of the UEFA Championship Finals in the Czech Republic on 14th July 2008 at the Chance Arena in Jablonec nad Nisou where they were defeated by the host nation 0-2.Three days later at the same venue there was a 0-0 draw with Italy in a game in which he was replaced by Fabian Delph in the seventy-seventh minute. Although England beat Greece 3-0 at Stadion u Nisy in Liberec, they were eliminated at the group stage. His progress was temporarily curtailed, however, by a serious knee injury in September 2008. In March 2009 Rose went on loan to Watford for the remainder of the season. He made his debut in Watford's 21 away victory at Doncaster Rovers on 4th April 2009 and started three League games and came on as a substitute in four more. He was fit enough to take his place for his fourth Under-Nineteen cap in the Group Six UEFA Under-Nineteen Championship Elite Qualifying Round in England on 27th May 2009 and he opened the scoring in a 2-0 win over Bosnia & Herzegovina at the Keepmoat Stadium in his home town of Doncaster, but was later replaced by Spurs teammate Dean Parrett. His fifth cap came two days later at Valley Parade, Bradford, in a 4-1 win over Slovakia, which was followed by his sixth and final cap in a 2-1 win over Scotland at Bramall Lane, Sheffield on 1st June 2009. The same day, he was called into the England Under-Twenty-one squad for the European Championships and made his debut with a substitute appearance in a 7-0 win over Azerbaijan in a friendly at MK Stadium, Milton Keynes on 8th June 2009, when he came on as a substitute for Mark Noble. He gained his second cap in the UEFA Under-Twenty-one Championship Finals in Sweden where he played a full game in a 1-1 draw with Germany at Orjans Vall, Halmstad on 22nd June. His third cap was also a full game in a 0-0 draw in a Friendly with the Netherlands at Euroborg, Groningen before there were a quick succession of games in Group Nine of the UEFA Under-Twenty-one Championship 2011 preliminaries, where on 4th September 2009 he played seventy-two minutes before he was replaced by Jack Wilshere in a 2-1 win over Macedonia at Stadium Goce Delcev, Prilep. This was followed four days later by a full game at Asteras Tripolis Stadium, Tripoli, where there was a 1-1 draw with Greece. On 9th October the reverse fixture with Macedonia saw England 6-3 winners at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, as Rose started but was replaced by the ill-fated Patrice Muamba of Bolton Wanderers, in the sixty-ninth minute as Rose gained his sixth cap. He scored the only goal of the game, five minutes before half-time, his first at this level, as Portugal were beaten at Wembley on 14th November. Rose was replaced by Jack Cork, then on loan to Coventry City from Chelsea, after seventy-six minutes. Three days later he gained his eighth cap as he played a full game in a 0-0 draw with Lithuania at the Vetra Stadium, Vilnius. Queens Park Rangers wanted Rose on a season-long loan from Spurs after winger Lee Cook was sidelined for four months. Former Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell tried to get Rose on a six-month loan for Sheffield United, as Harry Redknapp made it known that he was keen for Rose to get regular games. Redknapp gave him an eighteen minutes substitution at his home-town team Doncaster Rovers in the League Cup on 26th August 2009. On 29th September 2009, Rose turned down a chance to go to his hometown team when he opted to join Peterborough United on loan until January 2010. He went straight into the run on eleven the same day in a 1-2 defeat at home to Plymouth Argyle, playing a full game. He was an unused substitute four days later at home to Nottingham Forest before playing a full game in a 1-1 draw at Bristol City on 17th October. Three days later he started in a 1-3 defeat at Doncaster Rovers but was replaced at half-time by Dean Keats. He found himself on the bench in a 3-0 home win over Scunthorpe United on 24th October, coming on for Craig Mackail-Smith with eleven minutes left. A week later he again started from the bench in a 1-2 home defeat by Barnsley but replaced Chris Whelpdale after thirty-eight minutes. He started in the his final game on 7th November 2009 in a 1-3 defeat at Newcastle United but was replaced by Paul Coutts at Half-Time. He returned to Tottenham on 11th November 2009, having started four League games and being a substitute in two more. He made his full Spurs debut in the 2-2 draw with his former club, Leeds United in the F.A. Cup on 23rd January 2010 at White Hart Lane. He made his League debut against Arsenal, on 14th April 2010, scoring after just ten minutes. It was a goal that was acclaimed as the best of the season. At the end of the 2009-10 season his Tottenham Hotspur record stood at one goal in one League game, one start and two games from the bench in the F.A. Cup and one substitute appearance in the League Cup. He also signed a contract extension which will keep him at Tottenham until 2013. He went on Loan to Championship side Bristol City, making his debut as a half-time replacement for Nicky Hunt in a 0-2 home defeat by Watford on 14th September 2010, and Rose was happy to get the playing time that the loan brought and started thirteen games and came off the bench on four other occasions. He had played at Ashton Gate before he joined Bristol City as on 10th August he scored for the England Under-Twenty-ones on 10th August when he scored the first goal just after the hour mark as England beat Uzbechistan 2-0 in a Friendly. He had increased his caps at that level to eleven by the time he went to play at Bristol as he played two further Group Nine matches. The first of these was on 3rd September with a 1-0 win over Portugal at Estadio Cidade de Barcelos and four days later England had a 3-0 home win over Lithuania at Community Stadium, Colchester, with Rose playing full games in both. By the time his loan at Bristol had expired his caps had reached fourteen as on 8th October he played a full game in a UEFA Championship preliminaries play-off in which England beat Romania 2-1 at Carrow Road, Norwich and four days later he played in the reverse fixture as England held Romania 0-0 at the Stadionul Municipal, Botosani, where he was replaced in the eighty-second minute by Jack Cork. His fourteenth cap came in a Friendly at the BRITA-Arena, Wiesbaden, where Germany won 0-2 on 16th November, as he again played a full game. On his return to White Hart Lane he started four games in the EPL in May 2011 and by the start of the 2011-12 season his caps had risen to twenty as there were two Friendlies in quick succession. The first on 24th March 2011, when England beat Denmark 4-0 at the Viborg Stadion, Viborg, with Rose coming on as a sixty-seventh minute replacement for Danny Welbeck, and four days later he played a full game in a 1-2 loss to Iceland at Deepdale, Preston. on 5th June 2011 he got his third goal, when he scored five minutes before half-time to give England a two goal lead in a 2-0 win over Norway in a Friendly at St Mary's Stadium, Southampton, in a game where he came off at half-time to be replaced by Marc Albrighton, then of Aston Villa. He then played three times in the UEFA Championship Finals in Group B in Denmark. On 12th June 2011, he started in a 1-1 draw with Spain at MCH Arena, Herning, where he started but was substituted by Henri Lansbury, then of Arsenal, in the sixty-seventh minute. He was again in the starting line-up three days later in a 0-0 draw with Ukraine at the same venue, this time making way for Lansbury after fifty-eight minutes. Four days later at Viborg Stadion, Viborg, he came on as a substitute for Scott Sinclair of Swansea City, three minutes before time in a 1-2 defeat by Czech Republic.

In the European League he started four but completed only two. In the F.A. Cup he started four, of which he completed three, and came off the bench once, while in the EPL he started three, but was sent off once in the game at Villa Park on 6th May 2012, but there were eight games from the bench, mostly of a few minutes duration. He did not feature often in the International scene, with just one full game appearance in the 4-0 win over Belgium at the Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough on 29th February 2012 in a Group Eight UEFA Under-Twenty-one 2013 Championship 2013 preliminary game, for his twenty-first cap. Rose joined EPL side Sunderland on 31st August 2012, on loan for the 2012-13 season. He made his debut for the Black Cats against Liverpool on 15th September 2012.

On 2nd August 2012 he came on as a seventy-eighth minute substitute for Craig Bellamy in a 1-0 win over Uraguay at the Millenium Stadium, Cardiff and three days later at the same venue it was not until the one hundred and sixth minute that he replaced Scott Sinclair as Great Britain drew 1-1 after Extra-time with the Korean Republic but were beaten 4-5 in the penalty shoot-out.
