Leeds United deal for Tottenham star Joe Rodon on the verge of collapse

According to Football Insider, Leeds United’s hopes of signing Tottenham Hotspur star Joe Rodon on a permanent deal are set to collapse. The Welsh defender has impressed fans at Elland Road during his loan spell with the Whites since last summer.

Following the last Premier League campaign, one of the most frequently asked questions to Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou was whether he intended to bring Rodon back into the fold after his stellar performances in the EFL Championship with Leeds. However, the Australian coach has made it clear that he has no intention of including the 26-year-old in his squad, and Spurs have announced their willingness to sell the player.

Rodon’s future at Tottenham appears uncertain, and the collapse of a potential permanent move to Leeds United adds to the uncertainty. Despite his strong showing on loan, it seems Rodon does not fit into Postecoglou’s plans for the upcoming season. Leeds United, meanwhile, will need to look elsewhere to strengthen their defence as they prepare for their campaign.

Rodon signed a loan contract with Leeds United last summer from Tottenham Hotspur and quickly became one of the finest players for the Whites. The centre-back bolstered the team’s defence with his impressive performances, playing a pivotal role in helping Leeds reach the Championship playoff final. Having failed to return to the Premier League, Leeds will now need to look elsewhere to reinforce their rearguard.

With 50 appearances for Leeds, Joe Rodon has become one of the most valued defenders in the EFL Championship. Leeds United had planned to sign Rodon on a permanent deal from Spurs after their anticipated promotion. Unfortunately, Leeds lost their playoff final against Southampton, and their hopes for Premier League promotion were shattered with that defeat.

The entire plans of the Whites collapsed after the playoff final. The club’s financial situation took a hit, and speaking on the latest edition of Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast, senior correspondent Pete O’Rourke revealed that Rodon is currently linked with some Premier League clubs. Due to the financial crisis, Leeds may miss out on their Welsh target and other favourite stars this summer.

Leicester City, Ipswich Town, and Southampton are three Premier League clubs linked with defender Joe Rodon. All three clubs have experienced his playing style in the last Championship campaign and are keen to strengthen their squads after their promotion to the top-flight league. Competing with top-tier clubs requires robust defensive options, and Rodon’s proven abilities make him an attractive target.

Leeds United has lost all hope of signing the ace from Tottenham, and now it will be a race between the three promoted clubs for one of the most valued defenders of the last EFL Championship. Rodon’s solid performances have not gone unnoticed, and securing his services could be a significant boost for any of these clubs as they prepare for the challenges of the Premier League.
