Former Tottenham defender Graham Roberts has told This Is Futbol that he would like to see Joe Rodon join a club like Leeds United or Burnley on loan.

Tottenham signed the 24-year-old from Swansea City last October, but he has barely played since making that move from Wales to England.

Last season, Rodon made just 12 appearances in the Premier League, while he is yet to make a single league start this term.

Does Rodon need a loan move?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Bearing that in mind, Roberts believes a loan move would be good for him, with the Spurs legend naming Leeds and Burnley as ideal destinations.

“Leeds United, yes, maybe Burnley or somebody like that, who are powerful,” Roberts said to TIF. “I think it will make him grow up and make him become a better player.”

With Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez all at the club, Rodon does seem to be quite low down the pecking order.

There has also been talk about Antonio Conte bringing in a new central defender, with Inter Milan rock Milan Skriniar one name that has come up, which would complicate things further for the Wales international.

Taking all of that into account, a loan move to another Premier League club probably is in his best interest.
