Newcastle United is contemplating a potential move for Joe Rodon.

Newcastle United has shown interest in Joe Rodon.

The club’s challenges worsened just before the international break due to Sven Botman’s ACL injury, significantly impacting their European aspirations. With a subpar season, the Magpies face slim odds of securing a European spot, and Botman’s injury has added further complications to their plans.

Botman’s absence for the rest of the season and a significant part of the next one necessitates Newcastle United to acquire a defender to fill the void. Joe Rodon has emerged as their latest target. Despite financial constraints, which have led to speculations about potential sales of top players, the club explored options like Leny Yoro and Antonio Siva, yet none were viable financially. Consequently, Newcastle United may have shifted their focus to 26-year-old standout Joe Rodon, who has impressed during his spell with Leeds United in the Championship.

With his Tottenham contract set to expire in 2025, the London club is willing to offload him for a fee ranging between £10-15 million. Given Rodon’s lack of prospects at Spurs, especially following the arrival of Radu Dragusin in January, a move to Newcastle United appears promising, although the defender may have already made his decision regarding his next destination.

Joe Rodon expresses interest in remaining with Leeds United.

As Leeds United aims for a Premier League return, Joe Rodon has been a pivotal figure in their Championship campaign. Tottenham has already informed him of their intention to sell him in the summer, but Rodon is inclined towards staying with Leeds.

He seeks a permanent move to Elland Road, where he could secure a guaranteed starting position in the team if they achieve promotion to the Premier League. Should the 26-year-old opt to rejoin Leeds United, it would deal a significant blow to Newcastle’s aspirations, as they had hoped to attract the defender, primarily due to the financial implications associated with such a transfer.
