Tottenham are reluctant to meet Swansea’s City £18 million valuation of defender Joe Rodon, according to the London Evening Standard.

Yesterday we relayed word from the Athletic claiming Spurs are interested in signing Rodon, who will be available until October 16 when the EFL’s transfer window closes.

But with Spurs needing to register their squad for the Europa League group stages by Tuesday evening, they could be forced to pursue a deal for the 22-year-old centre-back today.

However, the Standard says Tottenham are unwilling to pay the £18 million Swansea want for Rodon for two reasons.

For one thing, they apparently believe the fee is too large for a player who has made just over 50 appearances in the second tier of English football.

And secondly, Rodon has a history of ankle injuries which could obviously limit his game time.

If his ankle is a genuine cause for concern, Spurs might be best advised to avoid a deal altogether – but there is clearly some interest from the Londoners regardless.



  1. The guy will be worth a fortune soon. Stay at the Swans, keep fit for a season and next summer sell him for 25 million with add ons

    • Rodon is far from over rated the boy is class , with 12 million your just about half way there for what’s he’s worth to Swansea

  2. If I was Levy I would pay up to 12 million. There is a gamble when these kind of players come along. People make them overrated and they must be reasonable in their price. They will be damaging the players future like that.

  3. There is no way Tottenham should get him on the cheap which is Daniel Levy’s MO ! The lad is a class player & will only get better. I’d rather he stayed or go to a club that recognises his true value.
