Gold says Nottingham Forest are interested in Spurs' Joe Rodon
Alasdair Gold has told his YouTube channel that Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Joe Rodon from Tottenham Hotspur, with the centre-back likely to leave in some capacity this summer.
Rodon endured a frustrating campaign, making only 10 appearances in all competitions. He only made two substitute appearances in the Premier League following Antonio Conte’s appointment.
Tottenham are looking to sign a new centre-back this summer. And reports in January claimed that Conte wanted to let the 24-year-old leave. So it is no surprise that he now looks set to move on in this window.
It remains to be seen if Tottenham loan him out or sell him permanently this summer. But interest is building, with Gold suggesting that Forest have their eye on Rodon following their promotion to the Premier League.
“I think there’s interest from Forest, certainly,” he told his YouTube channel. “Obviously Steve Cooper was his former Swansea manager, Welsh as well. He knows him very well. I’d be stunned if Forest don’t show some real interest in him in the weeks ahead.”
Nottingham Forest interested in Rodon
Cooper looks to be building something special at the City Ground. He masterminded their turnaround following his appointment. They were in the relegation zone when he came in.
They look to have an amazing team spirit. But obviously, they will want to add quality to their ranks before their top-flight return.
And, as Gold suggests, Cooper knows how good Rodon can be. He once claimed that it was an ‘honour‘ to work with the defender. And he labelled him ‘fantastic’.
A loan move could work out brilliantly for all parties. Rodon would get the chance to prove himself in the Premier League, while Forest would get a very good centre-back through the door.
Meanwhile, Tottenham can take their time before deciding what Rodon’s long-term future holds.
But perhaps, it may not be a loan move Forest are after.
