Tottenham Hotspur FC announced the signing of midfielder Danny Rose from Leeds United.
Danny, who has only just turned 17, came through the Academy ranks at the Yorkshire club and was on the bench for the Carling Cup tie against Chester City last season.
Danny has impressed on international duty for England Under-17s this year. In February, he started two of three games in the Algarve Tournament and then played in all three matches in the European U17 Championship Elite Qualifying Round, scoring against both Bosnia and Azerbaijan. He then played in all five games in the European Championship Finals in Belgium in May as England were eventually beaten by Spain in the final.

Danny Rose was involved in a 'tapping-up' controversy in 2006, when Chelsea allegedly made an illegal approach for three of Leeds' youth team. Tom Taiwo and Michael Woods both accepted offers from Chelsea, whereas Rose decided to stay at Leeds. Leeds chairman Ken Bates revealed he had made an official complaint to the FA regarding Chelsea's approaches. The situation was eventually resolved when Chelsea and Leeds United agreed an out-of-court settlement, believed to have resulted in Chelsea paying a sum of £4-5 million to Leeds.
