Spurs late swoop for West Ham target

Spurs swooped in and signed former West Ham centre-back target Joe Rodon from Swansea on a five-year deal for an initial £11m plus add-ons.

The 22-year -old made 54 appearances for the Championship club having made his Swans debut during the 2018-19 campaign.

He started all three of Wales’ matches during the international break to take his tally to seven caps.

Rodon impressed in the Championship last season, helping them reach the play-offs.

ClaretandHugh was told representatives of West Ham contacted the player and his agent last month but decided the player was at least a year away of being ready for the Premiier League and David Moyes passed on the option deciding to opt for experience in the form of a short term loan for Craig Dawson from Watford.

At the time West Ham senior club source said ‘We know the player very well and he could be good in 12 months time but the manager needs cover for now’

  1. If it’s true that DM made the decision not to proceed, then I trust his judgement 100%. Still not impressed that we had a poor transfer window regarding our defence, it takes nothing away from the fact that we have a solid and professional management set-up.
