Rose spent last season on-loan at the Stadium of Light.
âThey are having a bad time and are without a win from their last six games, but I really hope after we play them that they can win enough games to stay up,â the 23-year-old told the Spurs website. âI loved my time up there, Martin OâNeill was a great manager for me and he gave me a lot of confidence to go and express myself on the pitch. He was willing to give me games and I have a lot to thank him, the club and the Sunderland fans for.
âI hope they stay up, there isnât a much bigger prize to fight for than Premier League survival and thatâs the position they find themselves in."
