Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has confirmed that Joe Rodon will leave the club this summer as the defender seeks regular playing time ahead of Wales’ World Cup campaign.

Rodon made just one Premier League start last term and has not travelled with the rest of the Spurs squad to Israel for their friendly against Roma as he closes on a loan switch to French side Rennes.

“Joe Rodon is another good player and don't forget that in November there is the World Cup and many players want to play and play regularly,” Conte told reporters at Friday’s press conference.

"I think that when the thoughts from the club and the players are the same we try to find the best solution for both.”

Having made six first-team signings already this summer, outgoings are now the priority for Spurs, with Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks, Sergio Reguilon and Giovani Lo Celso also left out of the trip.

“The players are informed about the plans for the next season, Conte added. “We are talking about really good players and the club and I, we think they deserve to play games regularly.”
