Sources: Tottenham tell Joe Rodon to find new club
Tottenham will listen to offers for Joe Rodon this summer after failing to break into Antonio Conte’s team, Football Insider can reveal.
The Wales international, 24, has not had a single Premier League minute of action since the Italian took over despite him fielding a three-man defence.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that the club are ready to sell Rodon this summer and have told him he is free to find a new club.
Recouping the £11million fee, rising to £15m with add-ons, paid to Swansea City in 2020 will be difficult for Spurs.
Rodon has remained stuck on the fringes and has just one Premier League appearance this season despite being regularly named in the matchday squad.
He had been willing to leave in January and was on the target list of the likes of Newcastle United and Brighton.

But potential permanent and loan options did not get off the ground and it meant him staying at Spurs.
A Spurs source told Football Insider on 5 March that Rodon has “100 per cent” made up his mind to leave this summer.
The club have now given him the green light to leave at the end of the season.
Rodon has only made three appearances since Antonio Conte’s arrival, none of which have come in the Premier League.
He featured twice in the FA Cup and once in the Europa Conference League.
However, the Wales international has been on the bench for 20 of Conte’s 22 league games in charge.
The Italian has preferred the likes of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez.
