Jose Mourinho’s first summer transfer period with Tottenham took place quite busy. The North London team has just welcomed one more rookie, from the English First Division.
Although the summer market has closed with the top 5 European leagues, in the UK Premier League clubs can still buy, sell, or loan players to under-ranked teams until 5 pm on October 16. And with an old coach like Jose Mourinho, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
Tottenham has rookie Joe Rodon from Swansea
Therefore, in the final moments of the internal transfer window in England, Tottenham was the only big man who was active in strengthening his forces until the end. This team has completed the 7th contract called Joe Rodon.
On the homepage, Tottenham announced that it had bought Joe Rodon from Swansea. This contract is worth 11 million pounds, in addition to some additional terms. The midfielder on October 22, 1997, signed a 5-year contract with the Tottenham Stadium home team and wore the No. 14 shirt.
Possessing the ideal height with a midfielder of 1m93, the Welsh player is very strong in aerial combat and is expected to significantly add strength to the Tottenham defense. Although the name is not a digital star, Joe Rodon possesses the growth potential.
Not yet at the age of 23, the midfielder has had 66 official matches in the colors of Swansea and Cheltenham Town clubs, with 7 matches with Wales.
Coach Jose Mourinho has two hard midfielders
After the departure of Jan Vertonghen, coach Jose Mourinho only has two hard midfielders, Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez and many times had to pull Eric Dier down to “fire”. Rodon will therefore be a quality choice to help the Portuguese strategist feel more secure when rotating the force.
Rodon is the seventh rookie to join Tottenham in the summer market of 2020. Before that, the North London team welcomed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (from Southampton), Matt Doherty (from Wolves), Joe Hart (free transfer), Sergio Reguillon, Gareth Bale (both from Real Madrid), and Carlos Vinicius (from Benfica).
On the last day of the British internal transfer, Liverpool confirmed that young striker Harvey Elliott join Blackburn on loan for the rest of the season. Also, Harry Wilson’s move to Cardiff is also on loan to help Liverpool earn 1 million pounds. And the last person to leave Liverpool was young midfielder Ben Woodburn on loan to Blackpool.
