Swansea City are bracing themselves for a deadline day offer from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur which could see Joe Rodon leave the club.
22-year-old Welsh international Rodon first arrived at Swansea as an eight-year-old and he has since developed through the club’s academy to become a first-team regular.
With the domestic transfer window now coming to an end in England, speculation is mounting about the youngster’s future at the Liberty stadium with Spurs said to be interested in signing him.
Swap deal reported for defender to join Spurs
Football Insider have looked into Spurs’ interest in Rodon, claiming that the North London club have offered a number of fringe players to the Championship club as part of the deal, which is said to be worth around £15m.
The report goes on to add that Cameron Carter-Vickers is one of the players that has been offered by Jose Mourinho’s side with a further statement claiming that Spurs officials are confident they can seal a deal before Friday’s 5pm deadline.
Swansea are said to be keen on gaining a transfer fee of around £18m for Rodon but that could now drop to £15m if a player or two arrives on loan from the Premier League club as part of the deal.
What will Rodon offer Spurs and how much will Swansea miss him?
The central defender may not be handed first-team chances straight away with Spurs but his efforts for Swansea thus far have seen him become one of the most wanted youngsters around with Manchester United said to be admirers too.
Certainly, a centre back arriving on loan from Spurs would soften the blow of losing Rodon but that will only be sufficient if it is a player who can come in and perform to the standard Rodon has over the last 12 months.
