Tottenham and Rennes ‘close to agreement’ over Djed Spence joining team-mate Joe Rodon at French club on loan transfer

DJED SPENCE is reportedly “close” to joining Tottenham teammate Joe Rodon on loan at Rennes.

The right-back, 22, joined the north London side from Middlesbrough for £20m in the summer.

But boss Antonio Conte made clear it was a deal struck by the club and not one he was demanding.

And since then England U21 international Spence has been restricted to just six appearances off the bench for Spurs.

A host of clubs, including Leicester, Brentford and Crystal Palace are all keen on a loan deal this month.

But we exclusively revealed how his exit was being held up due to Spurs’ refusal to include an option to buy.


Spurs do not want to risk losing Spence for good at the end of the season, especially with Conte’s future in doubt.

And chief Daniel Levy is not currently entertaining permanent deals or any loan offers with an option or obligation to buy.

That has caused negotiations to drag, but now there seems to have been a breakthrough regarding the ex-Fulham trainee.

However, now Sky Sports News are claiming that Spence “is set to join Stade Rennais on loan for the remainder of the season”.

Should he move to the Ligue 1 club, then Spence will link-up with fellow Spurs loanee Joe Rodon.

The 25-year-old Welsh international centre-back headed there last summer for the 2022/23 campaign.

He has made 16 appearances for Rennes, who are currently fifth in the French top-flight, so far in all competitions.
