Tottenham star Ryan Sessegnon wanted by old club Fulham on season-long loan transfer after tough first year at club

FULHAM are interested in re-signing Ryan Sessegnon from Tottenham on loan, according to reports.

The 20-year-old sealed his £25million move to Spurs last summer.

But having been injured for the majority of Mauricio Pochettino's final months in charge - the England youth international found game time hard to come by under Jose Mourinho.

In fact, Sessegnon hasn't appeared at all in any of Spurs' last 14 Premier League games - dating back to the 2-1 victory over Norwich on January 22.

And according to The Telegraph, the left-sided player is open to returning to Craven Cottage on loan - after his former team-mate Scott Parker led them to promotion via the play-offs.

Sessegnon carved his reputation as one of English football's hottest young talents while at Fulham, having become a first-team regular at just 16.

Highlights included bagging a brace in a 3-1 win at Newcastle as a 16-year-old - as well as scoring 15 goals in Fulham's last promotion-winning campaign two years ago.

Sessegnon only managed 12 appearances in all competitions this season, however, scoring his one and only goal away at Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

And the youngster, desperate for his development not to stagnate any further, is eager to play first-team football next season - whether that's at Spurs or somewhere else.

Barcelona have also shown "tentative" interest in Sessegnon, however their financial difficulties brought on by the coronavirus pandemic will likely prevent them from making a move.

Speaking after his side's 2-1 play-off final victory over Brentford, Scott Parker addressed his side's need to get their recruitment right this summer.

He said: "There were some clear errors made last time.

"We will learn from that. We need to learn from that.

"We're going into the best league in the world, the best players, the best teams. It's a brutal league and I realise the challenge ahead.”

Jan Vertonghen says he is ‘considering the options’ regarding transfers after leaving Spurs
