OFFICIAL | Spurs land Swansea defender, Butland signs for the Eagles and Benrahma completes West Ham move


After signing full-backs, Jose Mourinho gets his hand over Swansea and Wales’ center-back Joe Rodon.

It seems that former Chelsea boss has the full support of Chairman Daniel Levy as Spurs complete another signing on domestic deadline day with Welsh international Rodon securing an £11m transfer to North London Club.

The 22-year-old signed a five-year contract with Spurs which will keep him at the club until 2025 after impressing with the national team and Championship side Swansea.

Rodon has marked himself as a regular first-team player with Wales and started all three UEFA Nations League games in the recent week taking his international caps tally to seven. The 6 ft. 3-inch defender will join teammates Gareth Bale and Ben Davies at Tottenham.

Before moving to Spurs, Rodon made 54 senior appearances for the club and the Swansea youth academy product may start in Sunday’s London derby against West Ham United.

Top News 2: Butland signs for the Eagles

Jack Butland returns to Premier League with Crystal Palace
Jack Butland returns to Premier League with Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace secure Stoke City’s Jack Butland after Wayne Hennessey picked up a heel injury with Wales.

As we reported last week, Butland was linked with a shock move to Liverpool as a temporary replacement for injured Alisson, but London side won the race for the England international.

Butland, who was rated as one of England’s best, is having a nightmare at Stoke City and the 27-year-old hasn’t feature for the Championship side since 5-0 hammering against Leeds United back in July.

The youngest ever goalkeeper to play for England lost his place to Wales’ Adam Davies since that and is now desperate to play again as his promising start to the career seeing a constant decline.

Former England goalie will replace Crystal Palace No. 2 Wyne Hennessey, who picked up a heel injury during the later stages of Wales’ win over Bulgaria, and will compete with Vicente Guaita who is expected to keep his place against Brighton on Sunday.
