Town Make Rodon Offer - Report
Sunday, 30th Jun 2024 22:48

Town are reported to have made an offer to Tottenham Hotspur for central defender Joe Rodon.

According to, the Blues have made a verbal offer for the Wales international but are yet to put anything formally in writing.

Rodon, who is currently said to be away at a training camp ahead of the new season, has been linked with the Blues throughout the summer.

The 26-year-old came through the ranks at his hometown club Swansea, spending time on loan at Cheltenham while with the Swans.

The ball-playing centre-half’s form with the Welsh club in the Championship led to Spurs signing him for £11 million in October 2020 on a five-year deal which is up next summer.

Since then, he has made 14 starts and 10 sub appearances for Tottenham and has spent spells on loan at Rennes and then last season Leeds, where he made 49 starts and one sub appearance as the Whites missed out on promotion in the play-offs.

The Elland Road club are keen to sign him on a permanent basis, while Leicester and Southampton are also believed to be interested.

Earlier in the week, Town made an approach to Hull City regarding another central defender, Jacob Greaves, but with the clubs appearing a long way apart in their valuation. The Blues are understood to have offered a figure approaching £10 million with the Tigers said to be looking for nearer £20 million.

Rodon & Greaves would be a fine partnership to have.

I don’t think it’s both, I think it’ll be Greaves or Rodon. I don’t think we will rip up the team that much. It’ll be interesting to see which two of our CB options step out against Liverpool on the first day! Wow, it feels really good saying that out loud!

Rodon or Greaves I would be happy with either on the left, Johnson possibly on the right and Axel maybe in the middle? (sorry Wolfy, Cam and Harry) If we go for Rodon then maybe thats a hint we are going for Philogene?

If we get both Rodon and Greaves we will be set for years to come. I am sure that K McK will give Woolfy and Cam every chance to stake their claims for a starting role but I suspect that Rodon and Greaves might have an edge. Also let us not forget Fridge and Tuanzebe. The latter also good cover for Johnson at right back.
If this all comes to pass I think that we will have a much stronger starting back line with Leif on the left and decent back up from the bench. Just need to find another left back to keep Leif on his toes.
Overall things are shaping up nicely coyb.......

Am also interested to see what happens in relation to goalkeepers.
I guess all will be revealed over the next week or two.

Burgess is the best CB we have so I expect I new partner for him opening day

Excellent news. Our defence has needed strengthening for a long while now. FINALLY we appear to addressing this.

I'm sure big Keiffer, our Wesley and Nathan are already on the case for us if KM & MA really want him.
With KM's past Spurs positive links, question is, does Rodon have loyalties now from last season towards Leeds & our negative relationship with them and their team from last season. Hopefully Rodon is bigger than that though.

Verbal offers are not worth the paper they are not written on !

Rodon & Burgess in the middle with Woolf & Edmundson as back up..i'd be happy with that.

ArnieM added 11:53 - Jul 1
Could we possibly be able to hijack Rodonsvrdported move to Leeds as a make weight fir Grey to Spurs? Spurs would get cash for Rodin from us and I'm sure the player would rather be playing regular PL footie snd not championship, even if it is with the " mighty" Leeds!

Ain’t happening! He’s off to Leeds if you believe the talk!
