Tottenham defender Rodon: Bale, Ramsey convinced me about Rennes

Tottenham defender Joe Rodon says he's happy on-loan with Rennes.

Rodon has revealed that Wales teammates Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, who himself is now in France with Nice, played a part in his decision after conversations with them.

"I speak to them a lot and they give me advice and guidance along the way," explained Rodon. "I am thankful for that. I can always reach out to them because they are top professionals and brilliant senior players.

"I can only look up to them and whatever advice they give can only benefit me along the way. Of course, no player wants to be going to a World Cup, having hardly played a minute of football. As everyone is aware, I haven't played that much over the last two years.

"I think it was really important for me and my development to be exposed and be put in a position where I play a lot of games. That will improve me and give me more confidence."
