Man City eye Joe Rodon transfer

Joe Rodon has been told to ignore Manchester City’s interest and stay with Swansea.

The 20-year-old local lad has had an impressive start to his first full season in the Championship and City boss Pep Guardiola has already looked at the 6ft 4in centre-half.

But Swansea manager Graham Potter has urged both Rodon, who has made just nine first-team appearances for the club, and Wales international wing-back Connor Roberts, 23, to continue their progress under him.
The players are both set to be out of contract in the summer but have begun talks with Swansea over new deals.

Potter said: “We need to do this quickly and that’s something we’re working on as a club behind the scenes.
“Joe is a young player who is still at the start of his career. He’s clever and mature enough to know he’s only played nine matches. He knows he’s in the best place for him and in an environment which suits him.

“We want Joe and Connor to be top players for Wales and they both have the potential to play at the very highest level, but let’s give them a chance to play and enjoy their football.”
