Manchester United target Ryan Sessegnon signs new contract with Fulham – report

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United target Ryan Sessegnon has ended all speculation surrounding a potential move to the Premier League by signing a new contract with Fulham, according to reports.

It was reported back in August that, following a goal on his debut and a promising start to life in the Championship, the then 16-year-old had emerged on Jose Mourinho‘s radar. 

The Portuguese was reportedly considering a bid for the youngster earlier this month in light of a season hallmarked by 30 appearances and six goals from left back.

But according to the Telegraph‘s Sam Wallace, the teenage prodigy has signed a three year contract with the Cottagers.

Sessegnon deserves immense praise for cementing his place in the Fulham starting XI at the age of just 16. The left-back, whilst diminutive, has an unmistakeable air of tenacity embedded in his approach, mixed with bucketloads of energy, that has clearly impressed manager Slaviša Jokanović.

And you can hardly blame him for wanting to continue pulling in the same direction, further cementing himself in the Championship and, perhaps eventually, making a step up to the Premier League.

He may be a Fulham player for now, but that won’t stop Mourinho and other Premier League from monitoring the youngster’s progress.
