Tottenham set to loan out Ryan Sessegnon this summer
The 20-year-old joined the club from Fulham last year in a deal worth £25m. However, the young Englishman endured a difficult debut campaign in London.
Injuries have hampered his progress a great deal, while Jose Mourinho also did not provide him a lot of opportunities when fit either. In the end, Sessegnon finished the 2019/20 campaign with just 12 appearances across all competitions, scoring and assisting a solitary goal apiece.
Heading into the new season, there had been expectations that the youngster would be more involved in the scheme of things. However, Sessegnon was not part of the matchday squad for either of Tottenham’s first two Premier League outings, whereas he was an unused substitute against Lokomotiv Plovdiv.
Mourinho has stuck by Ben Davies as his first-choice left-back. And now that the club has signed Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid, Sessegnon’s chances will take a further hit.
And hence, the club has made the decision to send him out on loan for the current season, in order to help continue his development. (h/t Football.london)

The Athletic claimed last month that Barcelona had made an enquiry to land the versatile full-back on loan, while the likes of Ajax, AC Milan, Bayer Leverkusen, Brighton & Hove Albion, Newcastle United and Celtic had all expressed interest as well.
So, there shouldn’t be any shortage of suitors for the 20-year-old, if the club actually push ahead with the idea of loaning Sessegnon out. Given his current situation, spending time at a club where he will be a regular could be the best possible option for the youngster.
