Ryan Sessegnon has completed his move to Tottenham on the final day of the summer transfer window – and some Fulham fans have responded with plenty of good luck messaged following his exit from their club.
The 19-year-old has come through the club’s academy and become an important first-team player at Craven Cottage, but has now departed for an undisclosed fee.
Fulham have confirmed (official website) that the teenager has joined Spurs and sealed an instant return to the Premier League.
He’s a highly-rated talent that is seen as one of England’s best rising stars, which is why he’s been snapped up to remain in the top-flight.
The versatile ace can play as a left-winger or a left-back and will now continue his development with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Sessegnon departs after playing 120 senior games for Fulham, scoring 25 goals and supplying 18 assists in return.
He enjoyed a Championship promotion with his boyhood club, while also playing in the Premier League with them last year despite ultimately suffering relegation.
A selection of Fulham supporters have responded on social media to Sessegnon’s departure and there is certainly no bad blood between the parties.
There has been a lot of thankful messages to the wide player and they are hoping he goes on to fulfil his potential at Spurs.
Here are some of the Fulham fans responding to the Sessegnon transfer:
All the best Ryan! Absolute top lad! Will miss you! And see you in a spurs kit will be disgusting but wish you all the best fella! Go and smash and get in the England squad so we can go back to supporting you! #OneOfOurOwn #legend

All the best @RyanSessegnon. What a player. Showed just how much #FFC & the fans meant to him on countless occasions & made his mark in the promotion season. A reason to go visit Spurs new stadium now.
