If you haven’t already stopped moving for another potential transfer, you may not want to start for a while. Sky Sports is reporting that Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham are hammering out the final details on a transfer agreement that would (finally) bring Ryan Sessegnon to Spurs.
Spurs are expected to complete the signing of full-back Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham on #DeadlineDay, Sky Sports News understands— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) August 7, 2019
This has been one of the most protracted obviously-it’s-going-to-happen transfers Spurs have been involved with in a while. He’s been linked to Spurs for the past two seasons, but Tottenham weren’t able to land him last summer because Fulham promoted to the Premier League. Now they’re back in the Championship, they really can’t keep ahold of him, he wants to come to Tottenham, and the rest is just horse trading.
Sky doesn’t say what the deal is but the Mirror (lol I know) says that it could be £25m, with Josh Onomah heading the other way. That’d be a pretty spendy deal when all’s said and done, but Joshy would get to play at a club with first team football options and Spurs would get their man.
It’s not a done deal yet, obviously. But there are a lot of ducks that look like they’re getting into a straight line formation. Stay tuned.
