Danny Mills has claimed Tottenham should cut their losses on Joe Rodon and feels the defender needs to secure a move away from the club.
The 24-year-old joined Spurs from Swansea in October last year, but has seen opportunities in North London come at a premium.
He has made just six appearances in all competitions this season with just one coming in the Premier League, while he has seen just 78 minutes of action under Antonio Conte.
The lack of minutes has allegedly prompted Rodon to make a decision regarding his future at Spurs, with reports emerging claiming the defender has set his sights on a January exit.
Former Leeds and Manchester City defender Mills believes the signing of Rodon was not planned out well enough by Spurs and claims the Wales international should now ‘accept it’s time to move on’.
He told Football Insider: “I think we’ve seen a few signings like that, panic buys which haven’t quite worked out.
“Ben Davies going to Liverpool from Preston is another one, you just wonder what the point of signing them was in the end – what was the long-term thinking?
“There are some clubs who were like: ‘We need someone in quickly, who’s available? Let’s get someone in’.
“Those types of players are rarely a good long-term fit and can’t really play the right type of football.
“He’s been there a year. He hasn’t managed to establish himself in any way and Conte clearly doesn’t fancy him. He has to accept it’s time to move on.”

The signing of Rodon hasn’t exactly panned out how people expected it to, even though he has been decent performance-wise when needed. A loan instead of a sale could benefit him, however, but he has reached an age where he needs to be registering secured minutes.
