Sergio Reguilon and Pierluigi Gollini react after news coming out of Tottenham yesterday

Sergio Reguilon and Pierluigi Gollini have taken to Instagram to react to Tottenham Hotspur defender Joe Rodon‘s loan move to Rennes.

The 24-year-old central defender has joined the Ligue 1 side on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy.

The Welsh international struggled for game time last season, playing just three Premier League matches for Antonio Conte’s side.

His prospects of breaking into the first team this season were dampened even further by the loan signing of Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet.

Rodon was linked with a move to newly promoted Fulham, but has instead made the switch to Stade Rennais, who will be competing in the Europa League.

Gollini and Reguilon were full of praise for their former teammate on Instagram, wishing him all the best for his new club, saying:

“All the best my brother” and “All the best big Joe”

Gollini was at Spurs on loan from Atalanta last season, but struggled for playing time after Conte’s side were knocked out of the Europa Conference League and is now on loan at Fiorentina.

Reguilon is another player who could be on his way out of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with new signing Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon appearing to be ahead of him in the pecking order.

Reports suggest that he has been offered to Inter Milan, and the 25-year-old did not travel with the squad on their pre-season tour to South Korea.

Rodon has been brought in to replace West Ham’s new signing Nayef Aguerd, and will be looking to hit the ground running when Ligue 1 kicks off this weekend.

The centre-back isn’t the only member of the Welsh national team to make the switch to France this week, with Aaron Ramsey joining Nice on a free transfer.
