Tottenham Hotspur have yet to see recent signing Ryan Sessegnon in action due to the hamstring problem he sustained prior to joining the club.

It was hoped that the former Fulham player would have returned for consideration to be selected ahead of the trip to Leicester City last month only for him to complain of irritation in his hamstring put a stop to his first team chances (Spurs official).

The Mail report that Tottenham are planning to phase the 19-year-old’s involvement in the first team by giving him a run out in two upcoming Under-23 fixtures to allow him to build his match fitness.

Sessegnon has trained with the Spurs first team this week and could be in line to play in the upcoming Premier League 2 fixtures against Wolves on October 26th, followed by a North London derby on November 1st.

The highly-rated youngster completed a deadline day move for an upfront fee which was said to be in the region of £25million (Guardian).


Once fit and available, Sessegnon will provide a much-needed option to the left side of Mauricio Pochettino’s side with his ability to play as a left-back or further up the pitch.
