Joe Rodon, a Tottenham Hotspur loanee, is still improving at Leeds United this season.


So much so, in fact, that Daniel Farke has hinted that the Whites may already be putting finishing touches on a long-term relocation for Rodon.


The 26-year-old was supposedly worth up to £15 million when he joined with Tottenham in 2020, but he had trouble making an impression at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.


Last season, Spurs loaned Rodon to French team Rennes; however, they chose not to exercise their option to purchase the player at the end of the campaign.


The Wales international, who signed with Leeds this season, is at last displaying the playmaking ability that made him a Swansea City star.

This season, Rodon has made 24 Championship appearances for the Elland Road team, keeping the Whites in the running for promotion.


The Evening Standard reports that Leeds is not required under the conditions of the loan to purchase Rodon from Tottenham.


Leeds must attempt to reach a deal because the Welshman is now expected to return to Spurs after his loan expires.


Leeds is “much overjoyed” with Loanee from Tottenham In an interview with the Yorkshire Evening Post, Joe Rodon Farke stated that Leeds would want to keep Rodon, and it appears that they have already started the process.


“We are working behind the scenes,” the Whites manager stated. “There’s no denying this. We couldn’t be happier with Joe’s performances.


“You can see him becoming more and more of a leader at this club and that his progress is excellent.


“You can tell how important it is to him to wear and defend this white shirt when you watch him at work every day.

“During the games, he is only content to be present and plays a vital role in our progress and achievements.


“We are extremely grateful for that, and while we would definitely prefer him to stay a little while longer, it is not an urgent matter at this time.


He’ll be here with us to the season’s conclusion. That is the most crucial factor.


Leeds’ use of Joe Rodon’s loan is double because there is no purchase option available from Tottenham.


Leeds will undoubtedly regret missing out on Rodon’s purchase option.


The Tottenham player has been performing incredibly well, but there may be a catch to this.


Now, Rodon has the chance to contend for his starting spot in the first squad when Spurs bring him back in the summer.


This is obviously conjecture. Tottenham might also choose to take advantage of the situation. However, Spurs’ hand wouldn’t be as strong now if the Whites had chosen to exercise their option to buy.


It’s wonderful news for Tottenham, but it’s bad news for Leeds. Radu Dragusin has strengthened their defense even more, but if Rodon keeps improving, they may want to consider him as a backup.
