Danny Rose believes that Tottenham Hotspur are showing this season that young English players can make the breakthrough in the Premier League.
Rose, 23, has been promoted into the first team by Andre Villas-Boas this season along with Andros Townsend, after both impressed last season in loan spells at Sunderland and QPR respectively.
With many in the game feeling English players are not given a chance, Rose feels Tottenham most definitely are.
"It's brilliant," Rose told the Tottenham Journal. "You see, with the likes of [Roberto] Soldado playing, that the club have broken the club record twice in this transfer window, which is really good - and it's great that the manager has put Andros in.
"He's had a great pre-season, he's probably been our stand-out player throughout pre-season.
"Then with myself, he [Villas-Boas] watched me a few times when I was out on loan last season, and he's noticed my hard work. Andros and I especially are over the moon that we've been given a chance."
