The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are delighted whenever a young player gets a chance…
White Hart Lane has become a real hub of young talent in recent years, with players including Dele Alli moving to the club and getting a real chance in the first team, often to devastating effect.
Fortunately for the fans in the pub, it doesn’t look like they will have to wait very long to witness another young player get a chance – with the Times reporting that the Lilywhites are the favourites in the race for Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon. Now able to sign a professional deal, Tottenham are seemingly looking to steal a march on both their rivals and Fulham this summer by signing the defender, leaving the fans in the pub very excited indeed.
Sessegnon, of course, burst onto the scene for the Cottagers earlier this season, performing spectacularly despite being just 16-years-old at the time. He ended the Championship campaign with 17 starts to his name, with his proficiency both defensively and offensively shining through.
He scored 5 goals and earned 3 assists during that time, highlighting his excellent ability going forward. A strong tackler and passer, our landlord certainly isn’t surprised that a top side like Tottenham are eyeing him up.
