Joe Rodon prepared to go out on loan in January

After yet another successful night in a red shirt which put ex Swansea City player Joe Rodon in the spotlight again, speculation is mounting on his immediate Spurs future. Playing alongside other former swans Dan James, Ben Davies, Joe Allen and Connor Roberts on a very successful night for Wales certain quarters are indicating he isn’t against a loan move come the transfer window.

Bar Roberts who is new to his role at Burnley his fellow ex swans players have all seen more recognition in the premier league at the very best clubs in the division. A perfect display last night for Wales once again put him in the spotlight. It has been mentioned already Rodon’s continued absence from the Spurs side isn’t good for his development, especially when in an International shirt he excels so,often. Rodon played forty league games for the swans in a fifty four game total. Nowadays he reflects only on thirteen appearances for Spurs in fourteen months, and only nineteen in total. Since Rodon arrived at Spurs he has been pretty much overlooked by Jose Mourinho, Ryan Mason, Nuno Espírito Santo and now Antonio Conte. All four managers speak highly of Joe but it isn’t being reflected in appearances.

Speaking to sources close to Joe a move away from Spurs on a temporary basis isn’t something he would dismiss out of hand. The issue is would Spurs allow a player of his calibre move to a Premier League rival ? On that situation we believe they would, dependent on the club. Graham Potter at Brighton is an admirer, and clubs towards the lower end of the league would be interested in his services for sure. Rodon needs game time and even a Championship move isn’t something he would fear.

Limited opportunities at Spurs for Joe Rodon

In an ideal world a move back to the swans would be perfect, but it’s highly unlikely, albeit Joe clearly holds the club close to his heart. Bournemouth have the cash, Fulham would offer game time close to Spurs, and the other alternative is a leaky West Brom defence. To join a club looking to return to the Premier League would be considered.

Rodon hasn’t played that many games for a professional who is now twenty four, only seventy seven league appearances to his name, and that includes twelve at Cheltenham isn’t where he wants to be at this stage of his career. He comes from a football family as well, it’s in his DNA to play football, but a succession of managers have ignored him. Come January it has to be likely Rodon will consider a loan move away from Tottenham. Swans fans can dream, but more realistically it will be a Premier League move in six weeks time.
