Ben Davies, a defender for Tottenham and Wales, has stated that Joe Rodon, who is currently on loan at Leeds United, has found a home there and may now pursue a permanent transfer.

 

According to Davies, Rodon can perform better when he is given a regular schedule of games and feels appreciated, which is what Daniel Farke is doing at Leeds.

 

This occurs just days after Phil Hay revealed that, despite Spurs chairman Daniel Levy’s demand for a £50 million fee, a permanent transfer may be in the works for the summer. [Nov. 9, The Square Ball]

 

“Sometimes people forget how challenging it is to go somewhere and then have to move every nine months to a new place,” Davies said in an interview with Wales Online on November 13. However, it appears that he has settled down in Leeds.

 

Joe is an excellent player. He is always very reliable, skilled with the ball, and I believe our communication is strong. I play with him for Wales every time. It really does cheer me to see him succeed at Leeds.

 

He is the kind of player who, in a situation where he feels appreciated and is having a good run of games, excels at defence. In my opinion, he is showing that right now.”

 

Since Leeds knows how valuable Rodon is to their team and the defender is obviously happy with his loan spell thus far, a permanent move might be the best option for all parties.

 

Leeds may not be able to afford the £50 million price tag Spurs have placed on him, especially if they don’t win promotion this year, but he is proving his value, and they may be inclined to make a major move in an effort to retain him at Elland Road for the upcoming campaign.

 

A permanent transfer for the defender will obviously need to be the best option for all parties, as evidenced by the blatantly ridiculous asking price Rodon reportedly received from Tottenham in the summer.

 

Rodon may try to push for a deal if he wants to move permanently to Elland Road, which is conceivable considering his strong performances, suitability for the playing style, and lack of opportunities at his parent club.
