Despite a poor start to life in France, Rennes could still sign Tottenham Hotspur loanee Joe Roden on a permanent basis.
That’s according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who often white lily rose social media channels.
Roden’s The move to the Rennei Stadium is comfirmed On August 1, it is understood that clubs that will play in the Europa League this season can choose to make a permanent transfer for 18 million pounds.
After a poor start to life in France, failing to win his first three games, Roden has now secured a starting spot and has scored for the club in his seven league appearances.
Wenham hopes the format will continue.
“To be fair, Roden has been back in the lineup in recent weeks,” Wen Han told Football Insider Reporter Ben Wilder.
“For the first time I saw him start in the 3-1 win over Brest (31 August) and score a goal for himself. It’s a big improvement for him and should strengthen his confidence and hopefully he can stay in the team.
“It would be ideal if he could stay in the starting line-up now because we want him to do well and I hope that at the end of this, Rennes will activate the £20m option to sign him permanently.
“I said before that it can’t happen, but you never know, things can change. Hopefully he continues to impress and can get a deal that works for everyone.”
Roden has made just three Premier League appearances in the 2021-22 season.
Two of those came in the last three games of the season, but he only played nine minutes in those games.
