Latest update on the future of Joe Rodon and Ben Davies

The Athletic (subscription required) reports the latest on the future of Tottenham Hotspur’s Joe Rodon and Ben Davies, suggesting that the Welsh left-back is set to stay at the club. The case is similar for Rodon, adding that the player is unlikely to move on a year after joining the club. 

The report adds that the player had an impressive Euros and the club have sensed that Jose Mourinho did not want to bring Rodon to Spurs and was not the best coach for the player given his age and inexperience  

Rodon is yet to receive instructions about whether he will feature in Nuno’s plans or not.

During his time at Wolves, the Portuguese was a fan of playing three centre-backs. Currently, there are no left-footed centre-backs at Spurs.

As The Athletic report (Subscription Required) suggests, Davies has the ability to play as the left-sided centre-back in a three-man defence. The Welshman often showed that during Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Tottenham.

While there are no indications of it yet, but if Nuno wants to ever try out his Wolves setup at N17, Ben Davies could be a candidate for the left-sided centre-back.

At left-back, Davies is joined by Spanish international, Sergio Reguilon, and young Englishman, Ryan Sessegnon. 

The situation for Joe Rodon

After the departure of Toby Alderweireld, Joe Rodon could be pushing for a starting 11 spot. However, he will have to compete with the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga.

The club are also linked to Atalanta’s centre-back Cristian Romero, as journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that Tottenham are leading the race to sign the player.

Hence, Rodon may have to fight hard for a first-team spot.
