Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Swansea City and Wales defender Joe Rodon for a fee believed to be in the region of £11m rising to a potential £15m.

The 22-year-old has signed a five-year deal with Spurs, joining the London club just before the domestic transfer deadline following extensive negotiations between the two parties.

Spurs first started talking to Swansea on the international deadline day last Monday but it took a further 10 days for a deal to be struck.

Rodon, who played against England for Wales last week, joins international team-mates Gareth Bale and Ben Davies in north London. However, he has not joined in time to play against West Ham United on Sunday and will not be eligible for any of Tottenham’s Europa League group games.

Rodon made his Swansea debut against Preston in August 2018, and went on to make 28 appearances during the remainder of that campaign. He followed that up with 21 appearances last season and earned his first Wales cap in the 2-1 victory against Azerbaijan last September, going on to earn a further six for Ryan Giggs’s men.
