Tottenham ‘insider’ John Wenham, has predicted that Joe Rodon could join Nottingham Forest on loan this summer.
Rodon is expected to depart Tottenham this summer in search of regular game time (The Evening Standard), two years on from arriving from Swansea City
Football.London’s Alasdair Gold revealed two weeks ago that interest in the centre-back was building, which is not surprising considering how well the 24-year-old has performed for Wales this month.
According to journalist Ekren Konur, three Premier League clubs in the form of Fulham, Nottingham Forest and Wolves have expressed an interest in signing the Wales international this summer.
Wenham believes it would be in Tottenham’s best interest to loan Rodon out rather than cashing in on him.
He suggested that a reunion with Steve Cooper at the City Ground could be on the cards for the centre-back following Forest’s promotion to the top flight.
When asked if Spurs could loan Rodon out, Wenham told Football Insider: “That could be an option for Joe Rodon. He is a player who, if he went out on loan, he would impress. You just have to look at how well he plays for Wales.
“He just needs a run of games somewhere. It isn’t going to be Tottenham. Three, four, five managers have had a look and decided he isn’t for them.
“I think the interesting one is Steve Cooper at Forest. They have worked together before and Forest need players with Premier League experience.”

Rodon has not been given too many opportunities since arriving at Spurs. So, it is not clear if he is good enough for the Premier League level.
The centre-back’s performances for Wales are not enough evidence as Premier League football is a whole different ball game compared to internationals.
The fact that three different managers have been reluctant to give the 24-year-old opportunities, suggests that he does have some flaws in his game.
