Many are waiting to see what additions Tottenham Hotspur makes this January window to improve the squad, but there will be some departures too. One name that could be leaving north London is Joe Rodon, who could be acquired on a loan deal.
In an interview with This Is Futbol, former Tottenham defender Graham Roberts stated that he would like to see the 24-year-old leave temporarily this January on a loan deal to a club like Leeds United or Burnley.
“Leeds United, yes, maybe Burnley or somebody like that, who are powerful,” Roberts said. “I think it will make him grow up and make him become a better player.”
Rondon arrived from Swansea City last year and hasn’t been able to solidify a role on the Tottenham squad. Furthermore, Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, and Davinson Sanchez are all ahead of Rodon. There’s also talk of Spurs adding a central defender either this January or in the summer.
A loan move would be ideal for getting playing time for the rest of this 2021-22 season and bumping up his stock that could spark interest from a club to purchase him in the summer.
