The Welsh international emerged as Spurs’ prime target after the international window shut earlier this month and talks have been ongoing for the past few weeks.
And, a breakthrough was finally made today as the clubs agreed a deal which is thought to be starting at £11m and it could rise to around £15m if add-ons are triggered over the course of his contract.
Perhaps understandably, the Swans fans are not at all happy with the sale, even though the club have secured Ryan Bennett as a replacement.
Obviously, Rodon will be missed on the pitch as he excelled in recent weeks but a big issue for the support is the lowly fee that they have got for the academy graduate in today’s market.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter to the transfer…
I'm off to throw up. All the best to Joe and I really mean that. He deserves it.
But our owners can take a swift dive off a very high bridge into a landfill

Shame the club couldn’t get the fee he is worth. Good luck to the Joe but the owners and chairman should be ashamed of themselves.

Truly one of the most disappointing transfers in the club's recent history. Not why the player went, but for how much he went for. Spineless.

We have developed an unerring knack of selling gold at silver prices. Muppets!

Couldn’t afford Harry Wilson on a loan deal and now this. Aspirations of The owners appear to be lower league football

Absolutely pathetic from winter and the yanks. How can we go from demanding £18m last week to accepting £11m today!
