Tottenham loanee Ryan Sessegnon open to another loan spell following Hoffenheim success
The youngster was one of the highly-rated teenagers in England and joined Spurs in the summer of 2019. However, he struggled with form and injuries and endured a largely forgettable debut season in North London.
He made just 12 appearances for Spurs last season, scoring one goal and assisting another. With the club bringing in the likes of Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Matt Doherty, Sessegnon was always going to struggle for regular game time at the Lane.
This led to him joining Bundesliga side Hoffenheim. He has thrived in the Bundesliga and has scored two goals and assists apiece in just 11 appearances. His performances also saw him get voted as the club’s player of the month for November.
While loan deals could prove tricky, it is fair to say that Sessegnon has benefitted from his decision to leave Tottenham. Having reaped the benefits, he is not averse to taking a similar course for next season.
“If [first-team football] is not going to be possible next season or in the future, of course I want to go back to a league or a club to regain that experience, and when the time is right to go back, we will see from there.”
Despite being just 20, Sessegnon has already made over a 100 first-team appearances at the senior level. He believes young players should not pass up an opportunity to garner regular game time and come back having improved facets of their game.
“Try a different culture, a different league, a different language and don’t be afraid, because it is a great opportunity. You will come back a different person and a better player.”
Change can be good and Sessegnon is proof of just that.

With Reguilon’s future far from secure and Bale failing to make much of an impact, Sessegnon’s rise could not have come at a better time. If the worst comes to pass, we will have the 20-year-old ready to step up and take his opportunity.
