Leeds United centre-back Joe Rodon is shining on loan with the club at the moment, and a permanent deal has to be in the pipeline if the Whites can afford it.

The start of 2024 has been sensational for Leeds at both ends of the pitch, scoring plenty of goals while conceding just once in six Championship games.

At the heart of these performances has been Joe Rodon, never breaking stride despite his equally reliable partner Pascal Struijk being absent through injury.

Joe Rodon price tag revealed for summer deal

Football Insider are reporting that Leeds could be met with an asking price between £10-15million for the Wales international in the summer window.

Rodon is seemingly surplus to requirements under Ange Postecoglou despite showcasing superb form in the Championship this term, and Leeds will want to be at the front of the queue for his signature.

It is claimed that multiple Premier League clubs wanted to sign the defender in the January window,but were put off by the valuation – which is insight that doesn’t really tie up with the fact that Spurs don’t have a recall option on Rodon’s contract to have orchestrated his permanent exit in January anyway.

Rodon’s price likely dropping from the summer of 2023

When Leeds initially tried to sign Rodon back in August ’23, they were greeted by a permanent asking price from Spurs.

The Athletic claimed that Leeds’ first approach was met by Daniel Levy asking for £15million, before accepting a loan proposal.

With Rodon’s contract winding down towards 2025 expiry, his valuation seems to be set to drop, as the above report suggests could be close to £10million.

Leeds need to be prioritising Rodon

Rodon’s form here is arguably the best of his career, and he will surely be thinking this is his long-term home.

However, that only looks to be likely if we can stump up an eight-figure offer to Spurs, which isn’t viable if we’re still in the EFL.

Promotion makes it a formality, staying down doesn’t make it at all easy, as not only will it be expensive to navigate, but he’ll still have top flight offers.
