Premier League transfer news: Tottenham sign youth sensation Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham on a five-year contract with an option to take out for an extra year.
Tottenham have chased exciting prospects all summer especially in the last few days. Names such as Phillipe Coutinho and Paulo Dybala were discussed. However, neither of the deals have come to fruition. It’s not all bad news for Spurs though as reports have emerged that they have completed the signing of Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon.
The exciting left back has been on Mauricio Pochettino’s wanted list for quite a while. A deal between Tottenham and Fulham seems to have finally been agreed upon. BBC Sport’s David Ornstein has reported that Tottenham have signed Ryan Sessegnon on a five-year contract with an option to take out for an extra year.

Ryan Sessegnon: One for the future
Ryan Sessegnon has 25 goals and 20 assists from 120 games in a Fulham shirt, and he is still only just turned 19. He is a very promising, productive player, regardless of what his stat lines said last year.
If he was a Liverpool/Chelsea/Arsenal player sent out on loan to Fulham and he achieved those numbers as an 18-year-old, people would be hailing him as an outstanding prospect. The fact that he is from an unfavourable side make people second guess his performance level. However, this has proved to be favorable for Tottenham who can now develop another exciting young talent.
Sessegnon will most definitely be their last signing of the summer. An unbelievably young talent heads to a side that specializes in developing youngsters. This is exciting news not just for Tottenham or the Premier League but the game of Football in general.
