TOTTENHAM have completed their move for Swansea defender Joe Rodon.

The North London side have been locked in talks hoping to convince the Swans to lower their £18million asking price.

And Jose Mourinho has finally got his man after having a £7m bid for the Wales international rejected by the Championship club two weeks ago.

The Swans insisted they valued the 22-year-old at £18m and have been holding out hoping to get top price for the centre-back.

But Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was reluctant to go to that price.

He has already splashed out big this summer bringing in Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty.

Levy was hoping to agree a package which sees an up-front payment in the region of £10m with further instalments of £5m.

The centre-half is regarded as one of the best talents outside the top flight.

Jose Mourinho has made it clear he wants to strengthen his options in the centre of his defence after Jan Vertonghen left North London at the end of last season.

Should the two clubs find an agreement over the next few hours then it is unlikely personal terms would be an issue to sort out.
