Swansea legend Alan Curtis suggests Tottenham underpaid for Joe Rodon

Swansea City legend Alan Curtis believes Tottenham have gotten themselves a bargain in Joe Rodon.

The Wales international became the north Londoner’s final signing of 2020 on domestic transfer deadline day.

It was believed Spurs had wanted to sign Milan Skriniar, but the Slovakian was ultimately too expensive.

The club instead plumped for the younger Rodon, who is being tipped to develop into a top centre-half.

He’s cost only a fraction of the price it would have taken to land Skriniar, and in the eyes of former Swans forward Curtis, Spurs actually underpaid.

He told BBC Sport: “I think £11 million maybe rising to £15 million is a little bit below what Joe is worth,” Curtis said.

 

“He’s certainly worth a lot more money than that.”

BBC Sport say Swansea had actually hoped for nearer to £20 million for the 22-year-old.

TBR’s View – Levy strikes again

Rodon obviously hasn’t played for Tottenham yet, but by all accounts his performances in the Championship have been so good that £15 million has been deemed a steal.

It’s now up to him to prove how good a deal this is for Spurs.

Given the concerning way the club threw away a three-goal lead against West Ham United on Sunday, Rodon’s chance to prove he’s another Daniel Levy bargain may come sooner rather than later.
