Tottenham’s quiet transfer window is set to continue that way after Ryan Sessegnon committed his future to Fulham.
Goal report that the 17-year-old has signed a four-year contract – his first as a professional – with the Cottagers following links to both Spurs and Liverpool.
On paper, it will keep him in west London until 2020, though it seems likely he will attract plenty of interest before that.
The England under-19 international scored seven goals and assisted three last season as Fulham made a late push for the play-offs. Of course, they ultimately missed out on promotion following defeat to Reading in the semi-finals, but Sessegnon has opted to continue his development in the Championship.
Mauricio Pochettino has an incredible track record with full-backs and may have viewed the starlet as a long-term back-up option for Danny Rose and Ben Davies.
Sessegnon would fit into Spurs’ system too, given his ability to play higher up the field as a wing-back.
Any such plans will have to wait, however, until he is ready to move on from Fulham. Had he not signed the contract, he would have been available for a simple compensation fee, but all this ultimately means is that the price has gone up.
