Tottenham Hotspur announced the signing of Ryan Sessegnon during yesterday’s transfer deadline day, with the deal confirmed on the official website.
Spurs have paid £25 million (BBC Sport) for the versatile youngster and he looks set for a bright future.
As part of the deal midfielder Josh Onomah has signed permanent terms at Craven Cottage.
During his time at Fulham, Sessegnon made 120 appearances, scoring 25 goals and registering 19 assists.
He was part of the team that won promotion to the Premier League during 2017/18, but despite 35 appearances last term, he couldn’t help the Cottagers to safety.
Following his move to Tottenham, Sessegnon took to Twitter to speak of his delight at signing for the club:
I am absolutely delighted and buzzing to have signed with @spursofficial. A club with a fantastic fan base and a place where I feel I can learn and improve as a player to take my game to the next level. I can’t wait to get started! 💙 #COYS pic.twitter.com/A0jL4pMnG9

Sessegnon should play a part in the first-team this season and has been given the squad number 19.
He is a decent acquisition and can play in any role on the left-hand side, whether it be left-back of left-wing.
The deal has been a long time coming. It seems as though the saga has rumbled on throughout the summer and the England under-21 man will be delighted to get it over the line.
Following his arrival, Tottenham supporters were mightily impressed to see the club get their man.
Here is a selection of tweets in response to Sessegnon’s message:
Welcome to the best club in the world, Ryan! Can't wait to see you flourish under Pochettino. #COYS
