Tottenham make strategic decision to extend 26-year-old’s contract

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are set to extend defender Joe Rodon’s contract by another season, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2025.

Despite not being part of manager Ange Postecoglou’s plans, this strategic move aims to secure a transfer fee for the Welsh international, who is anticipated to leave this summer.

According to Football.London’s correspondent Alasdair Gold, this decision follows Rodon’s impressive loan spell at Leeds United.

The 26-year-old had a standout season, playing a crucial role in helping Leeds finish third in the Championship with 90 points and reach the play-offs final.

Rodon made 46 appearances in the English second tier, starting 45 of those games. His reliability and defensive prowess were pivotal, contributing to Leeds keeping 20 clean sheets throughout the campaign.

Leeds United were keen to secure Rodon’s services permanently, specially after their bid for promotion to the Premier League.

However, their failure to secure promotion might impact their ability to fund the transfer, opening the door for other clubs to express interest in Rodon.

Rodon’s Strategic Contract Extension

Ange Postecoglou is focused on bolstering Tottenham’s defence, and the funds from Rodon’s transfer will be pivotal in this effort.

The extension of Rodon’s contract ensures that the Lilywhites can capitalize on his market value, preventing a potential loss of a valuable asset for free.

Rodon, who has made only 24 appearances for Spurs since joining from Swansea in 2020, may not have had a significant direct impact on the North London outfit on the pitch.

However, his successful loan spell and subsequent transfer could provide a substantial financial boost for the club.

As the transfer window approaches, Tottenham will look to leverage Rodon’s successful season at Leeds to negotiate a favourable deal. The extension not only secures Rodon’s value but also aligns with Spurs’ broader strategy to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.
