🚨JUST IN : According to journalist Ben Jacobs, this move puts Leeds at a “bit of a disadvantage” in their pursuit of the player


Journalist Ben Jacobs has revealed that Leeds United’s hopes of signing Joe Rodon from Tottenham have been dealt a blow after the defender’s contract was extended at Spurs ¹.

Rodon had a strong season on loan at Leeds, and Daniel Farke was keen to sign him permanently. However, Tottenham’s decision to extend his contract has given them the upper hand in negotiations.

According to Jacobs, the extension was likely a “protection mechanism” driven by Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou, who has been impressed by Rodon’s performances and wants to keep his options open ¹.

With Rodon’s contract extended, Tottenham can now dictate the terms of any potential transfer, leaving Leeds at a disadvantage.

Rodon was a key player for Leeds last season, forming a strong defensive partnership with Ethan Ampadu and Archie Gray. He played 50 games and accumulated 4384 minutes of game time, highlighting his importance to the team ¹.

However, despite his impressive form, it seems unlikely that Postecoglou will use him in Tottenham’s first-team, with the likes of Christian Romero, Micky van de Ven, Radu Dragusin, and Ben Davies ahead of him in the pecking order.

At 26, Rodon is in his prime years and will likely want to start regularly, making a move away from Tottenham a possibility. Leeds United will have to wait and see how the situation unfolds over the summer transfer window.
