Tottenham are reportedly still yet to pay Swansea the full transfer fee for Joe Rodon, according to the Mirror. 

Rodon, 24, completed a move to Tottenham in October last year and was the final signing made by Jose Mourinho before his dismissal just six months later. 

The Wales international defender was part of six incomings through the door at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in what was expected to be a big refresh at the club in the quest to end the infamous trophy drought. 

However, the Mirror claims Spurs have not yet paid Swansea the full £11 million transfer fee for Rodon, with half of the amount still outstanding. 

The report claims a charge registered by the club at Companies House revealed the figure this weekend, and two separate £2.75 million payments have been scheduled for a point in 2022. 

Rodon has struggled for game time in the Spurs line-up since completing the move to North London last year and has subsequently been tipped for an exit in January.

Transfers have typically been structured this way in recent seasons to make it an easier process for the buying club. Fortunately for Spurs it is a pretty small fee to pay, and they are in a position where half has been paid already.
