Ryan Sessegnon has been “close” to a move to Tottenham Hotspur for what feels like years now, and although there’s less than two weeks left in the transfer window it doesn’t appear as though the wheels have been greased at all. Speaking to West London Sport, former Spurs midfielder and current Fulham manager Scott Parker says that he “fully expects” Sessegnon to stay at the Championship club as they try and achieve promotion back to the Premier League this season.
Sessegnon is currently in rehabilitation for an injury he picked up in the European U21 Finals this summer but is close to a return.
“He’s rehabbing back to a point where he can feature. We’ll try everything we can [to keep him].
“We’ll see what will happen from there but at this present time, with 10 days [of the transfer window] to go, he’s a Fulham player and we fully expect him to rehab back from his injury and play a big part.”
Scotty P’s comments don’t mean that a transfer won’t still go through, only that he’d be quite content if the clock ran out while all parties were trying to come to an agreement. Sessegnon reportedly wants to come to Tottenham, but the details of the transfer are still in limbo even as reports over the past few weeks have repeatedly said a deal was near completion. It sounds as though this one could go down to the wire.
