Ryan Sessegnon – Player Profile
Ryan Sessegnon made his long-awaited move to Tottenham Hotspur on the last day of the 2019 summer transfer window.
The English wonderkid started his career at London neighbours Fulham aged just 9 and made his professional in August 2016 aged 16. He scored his first goal for the Cottagers not long after in a league match against Cardiff City. That season Ryan made 30 appearances for Fulham, scoring seven goals and was the youngest ever player to be named in the Championship Team of the Year. A fantastic feat for the young man.
The 2017/18 season was no different as he was named in FourFourTwo magazines top 100 wonderkids in the world. He scored six goals in January 2018 leading to him being crowned the Championship Player of the Month. At the end of the season, the Englishman scooped Championship Player of the Season, Young Player of the Season, Apprentice of the Season and was named in the Team of the Season. It’s fair to say Sessegnon was destined for greatness as a young age.
Sessegnon featured heavily for Fulham in their 2018/19 campaign but they were relegated from the Premier League.
It was then that Sessegnon made his move across the capital to sign for Tottenham Hotspur. He signed a five-year-deal in a transfer worth around £25 million. Still at a young age, Ryan has heaps of potential as is sure to appease the Tottenham supporters for years to come.
