Tottenham and Swansea City are still £5 million apart in their valuation of Joe Rodon with just hours to go until the transfer deadline, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.
It is believed Swansea want £15 million if they are to sell the 22-year-old centre-back, who featured for Wales during the international break and is now back with his club.
Swansea want around £15m for Wales centre-back Joe Rodon if they‘re to sell. Tottenham want to pay about £10m for him. If clubs can agree fee, personal terms would be a formality. Discussions ongoing ahead of 5pm domestic transfer deadline @TheAthleticUK #Swans #THFC #DeadlineDay

But Spurs only want to pay £10 million after spending more heavily than many expected in the current transfer window.
Premier League and EFL Clubs can still do business until 5pm today despite the main transfer window closing last week.
Ornstein claims an agreement on personal terms between Tottenham and Rodon will not be a problem if the clubs can settle on a fee.
And so it looks like Spurs fans face a nervous wait to see if chairman Daniel Levy can turn a 9/10 window into 10/10 window.
Tottenham require further cover at centre-back given Jose Mourinho still doesn’t seem to know his best partnership and the fact there will be plenty of rotation in the Europa League this term.
But will the Londoners get Rodon over the line? We think there’s a good chance it will happen – let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
