Former Tottenham Hotspur star Paul Stewart has been left disappointed by Ryan Sessegnon’s time at the club thus far.
Spurs paid £25m to sign Sessegnon from Fulham back in 2019 but he has struggled to find his way into the club’s first team.
Indeed, he was signed under the management of Mauricio Pochettino but his sacking and the appointment of Jose Mourinho saw him fall even further down the pecking order.
Should Spurs consider selling Sessegnon permanently?
No, he's got such a bright future
In total, the 21-year-old, who can play as a left-back or as a left winger, has made just 12 appearances for Spurs.
He was sent on loan to Bundesliga club Hoffenheim at the beginning of the season and has played 29 times for the German club, scoring twice and laying on three assists.
It remains to be seen what the plan for the youngster will be upon his return to north London, given that the club are continuing to search for a new manager following Mourinho’s sacking back in April.
And Stewart insists he has not seen enough from Sessegnon during his time at Spurs.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “I think he plays on the same side as (Sergio) Reguilon, he’d be on the left side.
“I watched him at Fulham, and he did very, very well, and I thought he was going to be a great acquisition, but he never quite worked out.”
