A fresh insight into both the fitness of, and season plans for Tottenham’s Ryan Sessegnon has been forthcoming on Thursday afternoon.
Versatile left-back Sessegnon has of course been on the books in North London since the summer of 2019.
After lighting up the Championship with boyhood club Fulham, the now-21-year-old was sought out by a whole host of clubs, with Spurs, in the end, having clinched a deal worth a rumoured £25 million.
It is safe to say, however, that the years since have proven something of a disappointment for club and player alike.
Sessegnon, to this point, has managed just six Premier League appearances in Tottenham’s colours, all of which came in his debut campaign with the club.
Such struggles, in turn, resulted in the winger/full-back being loaned out last summer, when Sessegnon linked up with Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim.
And, across his German stint, the Cottagers youth product went on to remind onlookers of his unquestionable talents, notching two goals and three assists across 23 league appearances, and even securing Hoffenheim’s Player of the Month award for November:

It is also worth noting that Sessegnon’s upward trajectory was only halted by a lengthy spell on the sidelines following the turn of the year.
Sessegnon to miss out?
As such, ahead of the new campaign getting underway, widespread chatter has understandably surrounded where exactly Sessegnon will be plying his trade over the season to come.
There is of course a new tactician on the bench at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, after Jose Mourinho was replaced by fellow countryman Nuno Espirito Santo earlier this month.
Those of a Lilywhites persuasion hopeful of seeing their young wide-man back in the club’s colours over the coming months, though, need not fret.
After being first reported three weeks ago, the news has today been reiterated that Sessegnon remains firmly in the plans of Nuno for the season ahead.
The info comes courtesy of the reliable Alasdair Gold of football.London, who has assured that the gifted youngster’s future under his new boss is set to be ‘bright’.
Unfortunately for Sessegnon, however, he will be forced to wait in his efforts to prove his true worth to the Portuguese, amid a hamstring problem which could well rule the ex-Fulham man out of Spurs’ opening fixture of the new season:
Ryan Sessegnon is touch and go to be fit for #Tottenham‘s opening match of the Premier League after a minor hamstring injury but his future under Nuno Espirito Santo looks to be bright.
