O'Neill had intended giving 29-year-old Jenas a chance, despite serious disruption to his career through injury - but deadline day saw the move collapse.
Rose, who played for Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics, has become O'Neill's fifth summer signing though and will stay on loan at the Stadium of Light for the rest of the season.
He joins choice purchases Steven Fletcher and Adam Johnson, plus Louis Saha and Carlos Cuellar.
The 22-year-old earned 20 caps for Spurs, but failed to feature in a league game under Andre Villas-Boas' command.
On the way out of Sunderland is Kieran Richardson, who has completed a move to Martin Jol's Fulham hours before the transfer window closes.
Richardson spent five years with the Black Cats before being snapped up by Jol, who's looking to strengthen his side.
Manchester United's Dimitar Berbatov was at the centre of interest from the likes of Italian sides Juventus and Fiorentina, but is now also headed to Craven Cottage on a two-year deal.
Fiorentina were particularly upset by the development, claimed Berbatov failed to turn up for talks even though they had paid for his flight to Florence.
"He doesn't deserve our city and our shirt," the club said in a statement.
