Leeds United have “agreed a deal” with Tottenham Hotspur over the signing of centre-back Joe Rodon, who will reportedly join the Whites on a loan for the rest of the season.
That is according to The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, who claimed that a deal between Leeds and Spurs has already been agreed, with the formalities of the transfer set to be finalised in the following days.
The development comes after today’s confirmation that club captain Liam Cooper – Daniel Farke’s first option at left-centre back – is set to be sidelined for up to two months after picking up a plantar fascia injury in the Whites’ season opener against Cardiff City last Sunday.
Rodon joined Tottenham from Swansea City in 2020 and has not enjoyed a significant amount of game-time with the London club, having only made 24 appearances since his arrival.
And, with boss Ange Postecoglou having recently brought in Wolfsburg defender Micky van de Ven in for a fee of £43m, it is clear that Welsh international Rodon does not factor into the Australian’s plans.
Rodon spent last season on loan at French side Rennes, making 22 appearances during his time at Roazhon Park.
McGrath, writing on X (formally known as Twitter) wrote: “Tottenham have agreed a deal for Wales centre-back Joe Rodon to join Leeds on a season-long loan. Formalities of deal to follow in coming days.”
Rodon’s move to Elland Road would see him link up with fellow countrymen Dan James and Ethan Ampadu, both of which made Farke’s starting XI in Leeds’ draw with Cardiff at the weekend.
