Fulham are reportedly keen to bring Ryan Sessegnon back to Craven Cottage after sealing their return to the Premier League last night.

Scott Parker’s side secured a 2-1 victory against Brentford at Wembley to ensure they have booked their place in the top flight following their relegation to the Championship last year.

The Telegraph claim that the Cottagers want to bring their former player back to the club on a season long loan deal, with Spurs said to be reluctant to allow him to leave despite the winger’s desire to play regular first team football.

The 20-year-old moved to North London last summer for an initial £25million fee which also saw midfielder Josh Onomah head in the other direction as part of the deal (Guardian).

Sessegnon began life at Spurs injured following the hamstring injury he picked up while on international duty with the England Under-21 side which forced him to miss the opening three months of the season (Daily Mail).

The left-sided player has struggled to break into the starting eleven under Jose Mourinho, with his brightest moment coming when he scored an impressive goal during the Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich (transfermarkt).

Sessegnon did not play a single minute of football following the lockdown and is said to be open to returning to the club where he came through the academy ranks.
