Born: 02 July 1990 (Doncaster, England )
Dynamic, powerful, attacking left-back Danny Rose has risen through the ranks to become a star player for club and country.
Having endured an injury-hit couple of seasons, the England international returned to playing more regularly in 2018/19, starting 20 Premier League games and featuring as a substitute a further six times, while making three appearances in our run to the Carabao Cup semi-finals and playing eight times, six from the start, as we made it all the way to the final of the UEFA Champions League.
Arriving from Leeds United in July, 2007, and going into our Academy, Danny had a loan spell at Watford before making his senior Spurs debut in a League Cup win at his home-town team Doncaster Rovers in August, 2009. He will always be remembered for his full debut later that season in his first Premier League appearance for us. Selected for a crucial match against Arsenal in April, 2010, he delivered with one of the all-time great derby goals, a volley from fully 35 yards that flew home and saw us on the way to a 2-1 victory over the Gunners and eventual Champions League qualification. He played 17 times on loan in the Championship for Bristol City in 2010/11, before starting our final four fixtures in the Premier League at the end of that campaign.
He featured 11 times in the Premier League for us in 2011/12 - starting three matches - and 20 times in all competitions. He then took his place in Team GB for the Olympic Games in the summer alongside then team-mate Steven Caulker.
Danny enjoyed a successful loan spell at Sunderland in 2012/13, where he made 29 appearances in all competitions including 25 starts in the Premier League. He was named Sunderland's Young Player of the Season.
His breakthrough for us came in 2013/14. He was first-choice left-back at the start of the season, scored against Dinamo Tbilisi in the Europa League in August, 2013, and looked set for the season until a foot injury sustained against Tromso, also in Europe, in September ruled him out until December. In fact, only injury kept him out of the side as he racked up 30 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice. His winner at Stoke City in April, 2014, was his first Premier League goal for us since that infamous volley against Arsenal almost four years earlier.
He kicked on again in 2014/15 and was a Player of the Season contender, making 34 appearances in all competitions - 28 in the Premier League - and scoring four goals. He netted against West Ham and Hull City but the highlight was a goal in our thrilling 5-3 win against Chelsea in the Premier League on New Year's Day, 2015.
In 2015/16, he made 30 appearances in all competitions, scoring once - the winning goal against Swansea City at White Hart Lane in February, 2016 - and impressed enough to be included in the PFA Team of the Year along with team-mates Toby Alderweireld, Dele Alli and Harry Kane. In 2016/17, he managed 21 starts in all competitions - 18 in the Premier League and his first three in the Champions League. He scored league goals against Liverpool and Burnley at home and was named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year for the second season in a row. Unfortunately, a knee injury sustained in January, 2017, saw him miss the second half of that campaign and the first few months of 2017/18, but he returned to make 17 appearances in all competitions throughout the remainder of the latter season.
Capped by England at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 levels, he won his first senior England cap in a 3-2 victory against Germany in March, 2016, and went on to be the Three Lions' first-choice left-back at Euro 2016. He was also part of England's squad that finished a creditable fourth at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
