Report: Southampton want Spurs wide-man; Brighton and Burnley also keen

Southampton are amongst a number of Premier League clubs keen on signing Tottenham Hotspur’s Ryan Sessegnon on loan, with The Telegraph reporting that Brighton and Hove Albion and Burnley also want the 20-year-old.

Sessegnon has been on the periphery of Jose Mourinho’s squad in the early stages of the campaign. He has not featured in the Premier League so far.

TBR View: Sessegnon needs to leave Spurs on loan for this season

It is too soon to make any assumptions about Sessegnon’s long-term future at Tottenham. But it does seem imperative that he gets minutes under his belt this season.


He only featured in six Premier League games last term.

In fairness, Spurs are currently gearing up to battle on four fronts this season. So there may well be plenty of opportunities for the youngster should he stay.

But you could certainly understand why some Tottenham fans may feel that he would benefit from a loan move. And fortunately for Spurs, it appears that they have plenty of options to pick from.
