Antonio Conte suggests that 'another good player' is going to leave Tottenham soon

Antonio Conte has commented on Joe Rodon amid speculation he may leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

In a press conference (via Football London) Conte talked about a number of topics including the Welsh centre-back’s future.

Rodon has previously been linked with a move to Fulham, but Fabrizio Romano has reported that a loan with an option to buy has been agreed with French side Rennes.

Conte said: “Yeah Joe Rodon is another good player and don’t forget that in November there is the World Cup and many players want to play and play regularly”.

“I think that when the thoughts from the club and the players are the same we try to find the best solution for both.”

Rodon was a key player for Wales as they qualified for their first World Cup since 1958, lining up alongside teammate Ben Davies.

Davies is facing a battle of his own, with reports suggesting he’s facing a race against time to be fit for Tottenham’s pre-season match against Roma.

The Italian manager’s comments are interesting as they suggest Rodon and Spurs agree that the defender’s future doesn’t lie in north London.

The move makes sense for Rodon, with his game time limited to just three Premier League appearances last season.

The signing of Clement Lenglet on loan from Barcelona provides further cover at centre-back, meaning the Welshman would probably be knocked another step down the pecking order.

Rodon has hardly been given the opportunity to prove his worth at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and Spurs may live to regret letting the defender go if he succeeds in France.
