Tottenham have completed the signing of Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon on a five-year contract for a fee that could rise to £30m.
The 19-year-old, who completed his medical at Hotspur Way earlier today, becomes Mauricio Pochettino’s third signing of the window and ends a summer of speculation about the England Under-21 international’s future.
The Argentine has been a long-term admirer of Sessegnon, who scored two Premier League goals and added six assists in his debut campaign in England’s top flight last term.
Sessegnon had just one year remaining on his Fulham contract and it looked like the teenager could be staying at Craven Cottage until January or even next season, but Spurs completed the paperwork in the final hours on deadline day and finally got their man, who can play on the wing and also at left-back.
He is currently out injured with a hamstring problem he suffered at the European Under-21 Championships earlier this summer and will therefore miss Tottenham’s opening-day game against Aston Villa on Saturday.
Official announcement is expected before the 5pm deadline, but here is Sessegnon at Spurs’ Enfield-based training ground today.
