Official: Tottenham Hotspur have signed the 22-year-old Welsh international Joe Rodon from Swansea City
Tottenham Hotspur have signed Swansea City central defender Joe Rodon.
Spurs had been linked with a move for the 22-year-old Welsh international for much of the transfer window and have acted late in the day to sign him before the English deadline shut.
Inbound transfers between English clubs and other countries were last allowed on 5 October, but 16 October was the deadline for transfers between Premier League sides and clubs below in England.
Rodon has impressed for Swansea City and Spurs need a new central defender after Jan Vertonghen joined Benfica on loan after his contract at Spurs ended.
Jose Mourinho’s side were able to rush through the paperwork to complete the signing for a deal reportedly worth around £12 million.
