Pundit raves about ‘proven international’ as Leeds agree deal for signing

The club announced the Welshman’s one-year loan move from Tottenham to Elland Road on Thursday (10 August) after having a minimal impact at the North London club since his arrival in 2020.

Now, he has been tipped for a good spell at Leeds and could be set for immediate game time considering captain Liam Cooper’s eight-week spell on the sidelines following a foot injury and the club’s “frightening” injury list.

Robinson claims that Leeds needed to address this area of the pitch due to Cooper’s absence and that Rodon is a very suitable option for Daniel Farke’s side to fill this void.

Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said: “He’s a good player but he’s had limited chances at Spurs. It looked like he was going to get an opportunity towards the end of last season when he came into the side.

“That proved that he can play at the top level. He’s a proven international player and I think for the way that Daniel Farke plays and he played with the back four at the weekend.

“The most important thing is that they got cover in that area with Liam Cooper out injured. He’s going to be injured for a long time. You look at the injury list that the club’s got, I mean, it’s frightening to think the amount of injuries that they’ve got one week into the season.

“With Liam Cooper injured for a good long time, I think it was imperative that they got cover in that area. I think Rodon is the ideal fit.

“He’s got Championship experience, he’s got Premier League experience and for him personally, there’s a call for him that he needs to restart his career again.

“Somewhere like Leeds is the perfect opportunity for him to do that.”
