Tottenham Hotspur believe that they have their left-back position sorted for the next decade following the arrival of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid.
The Spanish international has joined this week and is expected to battle Ben Davies for the starting sport in North London.
That means Ryan Sessegnon is not currently likely to be playing first-team football at Spurs.
However, as reported by Football.London, the long-term plan remains to have Sessegnon become a major player in the Tottenham first-team.
The report claims that Sessegnon will be loaned out this season, with clubs across England and Europe already clamouring for his signature.
But long-term, Tottenham still see Sessegnon as a potential top player and will hope a loan move away provides him with the game time to sharpen his game.
It is suggested that with Davies as a guiding veteran, Reguilon the main star, Sessegnon coming good in years to come and high hopes for academy prospect Dennis Cirkin, Tottenham have their left-back position sorted for the next 10 years.
The hope, it seems, is that Tottenham will eventually have two of the best left-backs in the world in Reguilon and Sessegnon fighting it out for the starting role.
Exciting times for Tottenham fans and, hopefully, this does indeed prove the case.
