Tottenham Hotspur announced the signing of Fulham teen, Ryan Sessegnon, right at the end of deadline day this evening.
However, Fulham are said to have been left frustrated by the deal and Sessegnon’s actions this summer, as it made for a rather tricky situation (Telegraph).
Sessegnon only had one year left on his Fulham contract before signing for Spurs, meaning that the Championship club were forced to either sell up or risk losing him on a free.
The 19-year-old was apparently clear from the start of the window that the only club he wanted to sign for was Tottenham.
This made it difficult for Fulham to attempt to drum up some buzz around the player to increase his price tag, as Spurs had no real competition for his signature.
Sessegnon has signed with Spurs on an initial contract that runs until 2025 and he will wear Mousa Dembele’s old number 19 shirt this season.
