Some Spurs fans on social media have been left divided over whether or not loaning out Ryan Sessegnon would be in the club’s best interest next season.

After showing glimpses of his undoubted potential during his first taste of the English top-flight with Fulham during the 2018/19 season, Sessegnon was snapped up by Spurs in a deal worth £25 million last summer.

However, the 20-year-old has had a disappointing first season in North London as he has found game time hard to come by.

While the England Under-21 international did get a few opportunities before the lockdown, he failed to play a single minute after the restart.

Reports indicate that Spurs are considering loaning Sessegnon back to Fulham next season after Scott Parker’s side won promotion to the Premier League through the playoffs (Telegraph).

It has been suggested that Jose Mourinho is happy to sell Danny Rose and use academy graduate, Dennis Cirkin as Ben Davies’ main understudy next season (Guardian).

While some Spurs fans insisted that was disrespectful to Sessegnon, others felt that a loan move could benefit the youngster:


Spurs Web Opinion

I see Sessegnon evolving into a left-back rather than as a winger or a wide forward. I suspect Jose also sees him as a wing-back but feels he has to improve defensively before he can be trusted in the position. I believe that a loan move to Fulham would be ideal for him as I cannot see the 20-year-old getting too many minutes at Spurs next season.
