- Brighton keeping tabs on Spurs defender Joe Rodon should they sell Dan Burn
- Burn is a transfer target for Newcastle in the January transfer window
- Spurs are also looking to offload Giovani Lo Celso and Bryan Gil on loan
- Lo Celso is close to finalise move to Lyon, while Gil is wanted by Valencia
Levante also like Rodon, who signed for Spurs from Swansea in a £10.9 million deal in October 2020.
The 24-year-old started eight of his 12 Premier League outings last term, but has found opportunities harder to come by this season and has made only seven appearances, with just one of them coming in the Premier League.
Joe Rodon has emerged as a transfer target for Brighton, should they lose Dan Burn this month
Burn emerged as a target for Newcastle earlier this week, but the Magpies are still shy of Brighton’s valuation, despite improving on their initial £8 million offer.
A boyhood Newcastle fan, Burn has 18 months remaining on his contract at the Amex Stadium.
Meanwhile, Lyon and Tottenham have agreed terms on a loan deal for Giovani Lo Celso and are waiting on the player to accept the deal and Valencia are closing on a loan agreement with Spurs for winger Bryan Gil.
Newcastle are falling short in their bid to sign Brighton centre back Dan Burn
Lo Celso joined Spurs on loan from Real Betis in the summer of 2019, before making his move permanent in a £29.8 million deal a year later.
After playing regularly in his first season in the Premier League, the Argentine has struggled to force his way into Antonio Conte’s plans this term.
Gil, meanwhile, arrived from Sevilla for £22.5 million this past summer but has played just 86 minutes of Premier League football so far.
