Sunderland will reportedly bid £8m for Danny Rose at the end of the season, although the left-back remains coy on his future.

Sunderland will reportedly bid around £8m for on-loan Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose.

Paolo Di Canio has been just as impressed with the England under-21 international as his predecessor Martin O'Neill and, according to The Metro, will put in a bid at the end of the season.

Rose has admitted that he did discuss his future with O'Neill but remains tight-lipped on his next move.

"I have thought about my future," Rose said. "When Martin O'Neill was here, we did speak briefly.

"That has changed and it's not the time for me to go speaking to the new manager about what he wants for next season. The main priority is to have Premier League status next year.

"Once that's sorted, once we are safe, I'm sure there is a conversation to be had. I know what I want to do next year and we will just see what happens."

Sunderland face fellow relegation contenders Aston Villa in their next match on Monday evening.
