Tottenham Hotspur set to sell defender for £10-15 million

Joe Rodon was signed with big expectations by Jose Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur is preparing to sell defender Joe Rodon at the end of the season, with a set asking price already in place. According to reports, Leeds United will need to pay between £10-15 million if they wish to sign this Welsh international defender.

Rodon has made a name for himself as an integral player for his Championship club. His performance has attracted attention from multiple Premier League clubs interested in securing his services. Several clubs attempted to sign him in January but were deterred by Tottenham’s valuation of the defender. It remains uncertain whether Leeds are prepared to meet this valuation at the end of the season.

At 26 years old, Rodon is not considered a key part of Ange Postecoglou’s first-team plans at Tottenham Hotspur. Given his age and career stage, regular playtime is crucial for him - something that returning to north London may not provide.

Rodon has been instrumental for Leeds United in Championship

The question now arises: can Rodon help Leeds finish their season on a high note and secure promotion back into Premier League? If he proves instrumental in helping The Whites return top-flight status, they might be willing and able to invest the necessary funds required for his permanent signing.

Spurs has recently signed Micky van de Ven, Radu Dragusin and Ashley Phillips as part of their strategy to strengthen their defensive ranks this season. This move has pushed Rodon further down the pecking order at the north London club - making it less likely that he will return come summer.

Rondon’s departure will be beneficial for both parties

For now, it would be beneficial for Rodon's career if he continues performing at high levels so as secure a respectable move during summer transfer window. There's no doubt about his ability or suitability within Premier League matches; however, he needs to find a club where he will get regular first-team action and be valued by the manager.

As for Tottenham Hotspur, their focus should be on recruiting players of higher calibre. This strategy would enable them to compete for major trophies in upcoming seasons. The decision to sell Rodon could potentially free up resources that can be invested in attracting top-tier talent - a move that aligns with their future ambitions.
