“He might have to move on” – Wales manager discusses the possibility of Spurs defender leaving in January

By Eddie Razo -

The January transfer window will allow Tottenham Hotspur the opportunity to bid farewell to players who might not have a long-term future with the north London club. 

One of the players that could be on their way out is defender Joe Rodon, and Wales national team manager Robert Page believes that the 24-year-old has to depart for playing time. 

“Joe is an unbelievable talent and rightly so got a move to a big Premier League club in Tottenham,” Page said, whose words were relayed by the Daily Mail.

“But now he understands he might have to move on and play games of football because we want our best players playing week in, week out.”

Wales finds itself in the playoff round if they hope to qualify for the FIFA World Cup, which is less than a year away. Page would like to have a Rondon that’s fit and playing regularly, not a player that’s seeing sporadic time out on the pitch ahead of their matchup against Austria. 

When it comes to possible destinations for Rondon, Newcastle United is a reported possibility along with Brighton & Hove Albion FC. The Wales international has only made six appearances this season for Tottenham, with four of those coming in the UEFA Conference League. 

Barring injury, it doesn’t seem as though Rodon will get much playing time, considering they’re not out of Europe and now in the latter stages of their domestic cup competitions.

Every manager that’s worked with Joe including Conte, have spoken very highly of him, but he has to play and a loan or permanent move looks likely. I think he’s better than Sanchez and would not make the howlers Dier seems unable to eradicate from his game, however everyone has an opinion and I hope he goes to Brighton with Potter as they know each other from Swansea.

Yet another ultimately pointless transfer, a waste of both the club’s and the player’s time. Seems to be a reoccurring theme under Levy…

From a player who barely gets a kick since he joined. Levynomics at its finest.

Mourinho wanted Skriniar, we all wanted Skriniar, we agreed terms with him, then Levy interfered in his normal annoying way probably saying something like “I’m not paying that, I can buy some punt of a kid for a fraction and save money which is my reason for living”, and pulled the plug on a world class CB that would likely have given us CL football and millions into Levy’s bottomless coffers. The little bald man’s stupidity knows no bounds. Will he ever learn? If he pulls that stunt with Conte he’ll be off.

Pretty much sums it up GCTM.

Although, he won’t see it as stupidity. He will see buying Skriniar as stupidity, stupidly reckless, when we all know what the team needs in the present. Levy cares about money, and not none jot about football yet the irony is the amount of money he’s squandered in the name of saving it. It’s boarding on comedic…
