Tottenham will now accept offer for Joe Rodon after Leeds twist

According to sources from Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to allow defender Joe Rodon to leave this summer. The 26-year-old has attracted interest from several clubs, including Premier League newcomers Leicester City, Ipswich Town, and Southampton.

Reports indicate that Rodon does not feature in Ange Postecoglou’s plans at Tottenham Hotspur, prompting the Welsh international to seek a permanent departure from the club. Rodon spent the 2023-24 season on loan at Leeds United, where he became a fan favorite. Despite Leeds’ desire to retain him, Rodon now faces significant interest from Premier League clubs, making it unlikely for Leeds to secure his signature.

Eager to rejuvenate his career elsewhere after a frustrating period with Tottenham, Rodon is open to a permanent move. It is understood that Spurs would consider offers around £10 million, even though Rodon still has two years left on his contract.

During the 2023-24 season, Rodon made 50 appearances for Leeds United across all competitions, culminating in a Championship play-off final appearance. He initially joined Tottenham from Swansea in 2020 and has amassed just 24 appearances in total for Spurs, starting in 14 of those matches.

Tottenham should sell Joe Rodon primarily because he does not appear to fit into Ange Postecoglou’s plans for the team. Rodon’s limited playing time and sporadic appearances indicate a lack of confidence from the manager, suggesting he may not offer the qualities or versatility needed in Tottenham’s evolving defensive setup.

Financially, selling Rodon could allow Tottenham to generate funds that can be reinvested in areas where they have more pressing needs or ambitions, such as strengthening other positions or acquiring players who better align with Postecoglou’s tactical vision.

Additionally, Rodon himself may benefit from a move elsewhere to secure regular playing time and reignite his career. With interest reported from other Premier League clubs and Championship sides like Leeds United, there is a market for his services which Tottenham could capitalize on to secure a reasonable transfer fee. Overall, parting ways with Rodon could be mutually beneficial, allowing both the club and the player to pursue their respective goals more effectively.
