Nottingham Forest hold interest in Tottenham defender Joe Rodon this summer, according to Football London journalist Alasdair Gold.

The reputable Spurs correspondent took to his YouTube channel to claim he’d be stunned if Forest didn’t move for Rodon in the coming weeks.

Steve Cooper knows all about Rodon. He was the man in charge at Swansea when the club decided to sell him to Tottenham for £11 million.

His move to Spurs hasn’t quite been the dream it was supposed to be just yet.

In 18 months he’s made just 24 appearances for the club and during 2021/22 he featured just three times in the Premier League.

Antonio Conte led Tottenham into the Champions League earlier this month.

With that in mind, he will want more players and Rodon’s chances of earning a chance next season look slim.

Gold believes that Forest will be acting in the coming weeks.

He said on his latest YouTube video: “For Rodon, Spurs have a choice to make. Do they loan him out or do they sell him?

“There is interest from Forest. Steve Cooper is his former manager from his days at Swansea. He knows him very well.

“I’d be stunned if Forest don’t show some real interest in him in the coming weeks.”

Forest hold interest in Rodon and Cooper is a big fan

The Reds manager raved about the central defender during his time managing him at Swansea.

Speaking in August 2019, Cooper said: “I think Joe is a big player for us.

“He has had a very good start to the season and the exciting thing with Joe is he is only going to get better.

“I really believe in his potential.”

Rodon fits the profile of a Forest signing under the new regime down to the ground.

At 24 he has bags of time to continue fulfilling his potential and some Tottenham fans feel he deserves more of a chance.

He’s been pretty decent when called upon but it does seem likely that Conte would consider selling him this summer.

Rodon picks up £24,000-a-week at Tottenham and that would make him pretty good value for money.

Forest will hope to be competitive next season and Rodon could be a remarkable signing for the club to make.
