Tottenham could loan out youngster amid fears that development may stall under Mourinho



Tottenham could loan out youngster Ryan Sessegnon

According to a report from the Daily Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur could be forced to loan out promising youngster Ryan Sessegnon this summer amid fears that his development might stall under Jose Mourinho.

Sessegnon signed for Tottenham from Fulham last summer in a deal worth £25m, but has struggled to establish himself as a regular in the first-team. Injuries had hampered his development early in the 2019/20 campaign.

And while he is completely fit and available now, the 20-year-old has been overlooked by Jose Mourinho since the restart of the season last month. Indeed, the left-back last featured in our final game prior to lockdown in March.

In fact, the youngster wasn’t even picked in the 20-man matchday squad for the last two matches by Mourinho. The Portuguese, instead opted to pick up academy prospect Dennis Cirkin in the roster for the game against Everton last time out.

Tottenham continue to rate the youngster very highly, but understand that he needs more minutes in order to continue his development, something which Sessegnon is clearly not getting under Mourinho at the moment. (h/t Daily Telegraph)

As a result, the club are now open to the possibility of loaning Sessegnon out for the next season in order for him get minutes and experience under his belt. (h/t Daily Telegraph)

The report adds that chairman Daniel Levy would sanction a loan move only if he is certain that the youngster would get regular first-team action. It further claims that the Spurs’ chairman wouldn’t let the left-back join any club that can be considered as a direct rival.

Sessegnon was only 17 when he was named the Championship Player of the Season in 2018. Following his exploits there were calls for him to be included in England’s squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. However, his struggles at Tottenham have seen him completely drop out of the picture as far as national team selection is considered.

The prospect of winning a place in the squad for next summer’s European championships could motivate the youngster to consider a loan departure as well.
