Ryan Sessegnon has agreed terms on a new contract with Fulham, according to the Times.

Tottenham have reportedly been chasing Sessegnon since he broke into Fulham’s first-team at the age of 16.

The 18-year-old established himself as a regular at Craven Cottage last season, moving from left-back to the left wing and scoring 16 goals in 46 appearances as Fulham achieved promotion to the Premier League.

Spurs had been expected to make a move for Sessegnon if Fulham failed to win their Championship play-off final against Aston Villa.

But Sessegnon’s assist for Tom Cairney’s winning goal saw Fulham return to the top-flight for the first time since they were relegated to the Championship in 2014.

Now, the Times claims both Sessegnon and Cairney have agreed to sign new contracts with the Londoners, ending the chances of the duo moving to Tottenham and West Ham United respectively.

The report also reveals Sessegnon turned down Manchester United in January, although it’s unclear whether Spurs made an official move for the teenager.

It will be interesting to see how Sessegnon performs in the Premier League – perhaps Tottenham will reignite their interest at a later date.
