Joe Rodon is attracting interest from fellow Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion this summer, according to The Sun.

Seagulls boss Graham Potter, who managed the 23-year-old during their time together at the Liberty Stadium is keen to be reunited with Rodon whether on a loan or permanent basis, along with another former Swan, Dan James.

Manchester United’s capture of Jadon Sancho is likely to see James’ game time limited at Old Trafford with Potter hopeful of recruiting the pair of Welsh internationals.

Rodon made the move to North London last summer on a five-year deal for an initial £11m fee plus add-ons (BBC).

Having seen his game time limited after not being included in Tottenham’s 25-man Europa League squad and unable to feature in their Carabao Cup campaign after featuring for Swansea earlier in the competition, his only chance of first-team football came in the Premier League and FA Cup (transfermarkt).

The report claims that Rodon could be made available with the club ‘closing in’ on Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Potter was heavily linked as a candidate to take over from Jose Mourinho, but the club instead decided to appoint Nuno Espirito Santo following a ten-week search (Football.London).

It would not make sense to sell or loan Rodon at this early stage of his Spurs career when the likes of Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez have been given opportunity after opportunity yet are still making silly individual errors.
