Fulham expect Ryan Sessegnon to stay this summer rather than join Tottenham, according to the Mirror.
Sessegnon, who has one year left on his contract, has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs this summer. The 19-year-old has reportedly been identified as a long-term replacement for Danny Rose.
Tottenham have apparently come close to agreeing a £25 million deal for Sessegnon, although Scott Parker has suggested he expects the left-back to still be a Fulham player come the end of the transfer window.
Parker may have just been toeing the line when he made those comments, but the Mirror is now claiming the transfer looks set to fall through.
The report claims Spurs are waiting until Rose’s sale has gone through before making their move for Sessegnon, but it seems increasingly likely Rose is going to stick around having failed to secure a move away from north London.
Indeed, Rose played against Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in the Audi Cup after initially being left out of Tottenham’s pre-season tour of Asia. Perhaps Spurs will keep him and try to sign Sessegnon on a free transfer next summer instead.
