Some Swansea fans on social media are apoplectic at the reports that Tottenham’s deal to sign Joe Rodon was worth around £11m.

There have been contradictory claims made in the British press over the past week about how much a potential deal for Rodon was likely to be worth.

The Athletic initially claimed that Spurs were hopeful of getting the transfer done for a little more than the £7m fee that the club initially had in mind, while Alasdair Gold suggested that Swansea were demanding close to £20m.

It looks like the two clubs reached a midway compromise, with Spurs paying an initial £11m upfront with performance-related add-ons bringing the deal to £15m (BBC Wales’ Gareth Vincent).

Swansea fans are absolutely livid that their owners decided to let the 22-year-old go so cheaply.

While many said that they would not begrudge Rodon a chance to play at the highest level, they insisted that the club should have demanded a much higher fee.

Spurs Web Opinion

One of the best ways to judge if a transfer deal constitutes good business is by looking at the reaction of the fans who are losing the player. Based on the reaction of Swansea fans, one cannot help but be excited at Joe Rodon’s arrival as looks like a huge bargain for us. Daniel Levy seems to have pulled off a deadline day masterclass once again.
