Target Rodon Set For Leeds
Monday, 1st Jul 2024 12:05

Reported Blues target Joe Rodon is expected to join his former loan club Leeds United from Tottenham Hotspur on a permanent basis.

Yesterday, Town were reported to have made a verbal offer for the Wales international centre-half.

However, it’s widely reported this morning that Rodon has been part of the discussions as Spurs and Leeds discussed Archie Gray’s £40 million switch to North London.

Rodon, 26, is now expected to join the Championship Whites, with whom he spent last season on loan, in a separate deal understood to be worth £10 million.

A centre-half is on Town’s summer wishlist with Hull City’s Jacob Greaves another player they have approached.

The Blues are believed to have made contact, although offering a sum below the reported £10 million, while the Tigers are said to have put a £20 million price tag on the 23-year-old’s head.

Maybe it was never a runner for us as he was happy at Leeds, but I think £10m is not unreasonable for the best centre half in the Championship, who plays the way the manager wants, & at 26 is a great age for someone in that position. Coming in with an offer when discussions were already well advanced due to Archie Gray link, is too late; perhaps a verbal offer a couple of weeks ago might have tipped the prospect more our way.
We move on.

We need to target clubs that need to sell for a centre half

We only want players who want to come here and commit to the cause.

Happy in the Championship! No ambition, we’ll do better.

Bluespeed225 It's not fair to say no ambition. He may be ambitious for Leeds and he is settled there. It just goes to show what an achievement it was to finish above Leeds, because really they should have bettered us considering the money they have. They just sold a player for 40 million!
Are we interested enough to offer more money? Or is the deal set in stone?

Archie Gray at £40m is ridiculous compared to Omari at £20m.
And Rodon may be going to a club who may have trouble holding on to their best players and with no guarantee of going up again.

Joe Rodon always looks like he has Covid, let him spread it through the Leeds squad instead.

I think we need two centre backs in,I'm not entirely convinced any of our 3 are up to premier league standards.
Salah,Haaland,Isak etc will have a field day.

Teden Mengi has just had a great season at Luton, proven he can do it at Premier League level.

Having spoken to some Leeds fans who are regularly at their matches he was decent in the Championship but not outstanding. They were of the opinion that the PL would be a step too far. I think there are better options out there.

Leeds/Championship is more his level.

His loss not ours if true i'm sure Mr Ashton has things in hand and it will be announced when done and dusted re defenders and keeper( If correct and we are looking at the Luton keeper then why not a swap and cash adjustment as Edwards was very keen on Walton a few short months ago).

Town_Jewells added 18:32 - Jul 1
Mengi could be a good shout. He was excellent in an otherwise poorish Luton defence, and McKenna will be well familiar with him having come through the Man Utd youths.
