Tottenham Hotspur left some of their business until the death in the last transfer window, as they brought in Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham and Giovani Lo Celso on loan from Real Betis on deadline day.
While Sessegnon has now made cameos under both Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho, he has yet to start a match for Tottenham.
However, that could all change this week as Spurs face Bayern Munich in the Champions League group stage away from home.
While this would normally be the last fixture to throw a new young player into for their full debut, both teams have already qualified for the knockouts and there is nothing riding on the fixture at all.
Sessegnon was selected by Mourinho to join him on the pre-match press conference, which would tend to suggest that he has a chance of starting tomorrow night.
The teenager has now revealed that Champions League football was one of the main reasons he joined the club.
He said (Football London): “You can see how it’s changed for me. I’ve come to a bigger club, bigger expectations. It’s a bigger step for me to play at a higher level. Last season wasn’t a good one for me. I felt it was time for me to go to another level.”
