Tottenham confirm Ryan Sessegnon deal

Football FanCast’s News articles summarise the biggest stories in world football, based on information from other sources.

Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham, the club have announced.

What’s the word?

The left-back, who can also play as a winger, has been a target for the club throughout the summer transfer window, sources have confirmed.

The 19-year-old has penned a deal until 2025 with the club and has been assigned the No.19 shirt.

Sessegnon played in a Fulham team that were relegated last season but he still managed to score two goals and provide six assists, with one of the latter coming against Spurs.

The north London club have also confirmed that they have sold Josh Onomah to the Cottagers in a deal linked to the one bringing Sessegnon to north London.

Chase bears fruit

Sources have always maintained that Spurs were confident of getting this deal over the line after Mauricio Pochettino identified the versatile full-back as a target.

However, it has been a long and drawn-out process, with talks taking months to actually reach a resolution.

Sessegnon reportedly informed Fulham at the start of the window that he would not be signing a new contract and wanted to move to Spurs.

And they have finally got their man, with reports claiming the deal will cost the club an initial £25m with the potential to rise to £30m.

Pochettino will be a happy man.
