Despite the recent upturn in performances, the Irons have still been linked to players in the domestic transfer window, with Swansea’s Joe Rodon chief among those. However, a lot of Hammers fans were not too pleased with the latest update on this possible transfer – one supporter sarcastically alluded to the “Sullivan masterplan” of another fruitless defensive pursuit, following the owners’ recent near-miss for Burnley’s James Tarkowski.
Should West Ham be attempting to sign Rodon?
He would have been a nice addition as he averaged one successful tackle and 1.6 interceptions per game for Swansea in the Championship last season, via WhoScored. This, plus the fact Spurs are keen, highlights the potential and talents of the 22-year-old.
Here is how West Ham fans reacted to the transfer update on Joe Rodon:
West Ham have also cooled their interest in Joe Rodon, who appears to be set to join Tottenham.

The Sullivan masterplan in action again where he is determined to bid less for players than clubs want, last their week Swansea wanted £18m we were interested but only if the bid was below £15m, now the price is dropping to £10m, if Salthouse was his agent we would have bid £50m

That’s my pick. But he will be over £5m, so Craig Dawson instead
