Alasdair Gold has revealed that interest in Tottenham defender Joe Rodon is growing as we approach the summer transfer window.

Rodon has hardly had any game time since Antonio Conte arrived through the door at Tottenham but the centre-half continues to impress for Wales.

On Sunday, the 24-year-old put in another solid display for his country alongside Ben Davies at the back as the Dragons defeated Ukraine to book their place at the Qatar World Cup.

The former Swansea man might have already played his final game for Tottenham, with reports indicating that he could depart the club this summer in search of regular game time (The Evening Standard).

Gold has now confirmed that Rodon is seeking regular football and clubs are showing interest in the centre-back.

The journalist also revealed that Emerson Royal and Giovani Lo Celso have no shortage of interest from La Liga, while Bryan Gil will also attract offers from Spain if Spurs decide to put the winger in the shop window.

When asked if there are any outgoings in the pipeline for Tottenham, Gold responded in a Q&A on Football.London: “Bergwijn has now come out publicly and said he wants to leave and Ajax will try to make that happen. 

“Both Lo Celso and Emerson Royal have interest from La Liga clubs and Bryan Gil certainly will have if Spurs decide he needs to head out again this summer, either on loan or permanently. 

“Harry Winks will not be short of offers as he seeks regular football next term and interest is building in Joe Rodon as he wants the same.”

We have not really seen enough on Rodon to tell whether he can cut in the Premier League. Given how little football he has played since he arrived at the club two years ago, one cannot blame the centre-back for pushing for a move this summer.
