Rose admits he would jump at the chance to move to Wearside on a permanent basis.
"If there was a chance that I could move here permanently, I'd snatch it with both hands," he told the Sunderland Echo. "Nothing has been said of that kind. I'm just here on loan for the season and anything after that would be a bonus.
"The gaffer just asked me to come here on loan and said I'd play more games here than I would at Spurs which is right.
"I've just got to take it game by game and see where it takes me."
