Born: 22 October 1997 (Llangyfelach, Wales)
Joe Rodon joined us from Swansea City in October, 2020.
A strong, cultured centre-half, Joe helped us keep a clean sheet on his full debut at Stamford Bridge in November, 2020, and went on to make 14 appearances in all competitions in his first season. That included eight starts in the Premier League.
Still only 23, Joe was part of the Welsh squad at Euro 2020, playing every game as, like in Euro 2016, they progressed into the knockout stage of the European Championships, this time bowing out in the last 16.
Born in Llangyfelach, a village just outside Swansea, the Welsh international central defender progressed through the youth ranks to become a key member of the first team at the Liberty Stadium.
He made his debut in the third game of the 2018/19 Championship campaign against Preston on 17 August, 2018, and went on to make 28 appearances that term.
He followed up with 21 appearances during the 2019/20 season and earned his first cap for Wales in a 2-1 victory against Azerbaijan in European Championship qualifying on 6 September, 2019. He then featured five times for Swansea at the beginning of the 2020/21 season before completing his move to north London.
Following his exploits in Euro 2020, Joe is now up to 18 senior caps for Wales.
