Rennes sign Joe Rodon on season-long loan from Spurs

Tottenham defender Joe Rodon has joined Rennes on loan for the 2022/23 season, with a €20million option to join the Ligue 1 side on a permanent basis.

The 24-year-old defender made nine appearances in all competitions for Spurs last campaign, and will look to earn more playing time with the French outfit ahead of Wales' historic World Cup appearance - their first since 1958.

The Swansea native was a critical cog in Wales' qualifying campaign and has earned 27 caps for his national side, who sealed their tickets to Qatar with a play-off victory over Ukraine in June.

Rodon has appeared 24 times for Spurs since joining from Swansea in October 2020 and will be familiar with his new club having played against them in the Europa Conference League last September.

Spurs signed Rodon from Swansea City for £11m during the Jose Mourinho era, and a permanent move to Rennes would bring in a small profit.

Spurs defender Japhet Tanganga could also leave the club this summer on loan, which could see Antonio Conte bring in another player to increase squad depth.
