After a long drawn out summer transfer window saga, Tottenham Hotspur finally got their hands on Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon, and despite being announced very late on Thursday evening given the 5pm deadline, he is now ours as the paperwork sailed through.
Having paid a reported £25million which could rise to £30million for the 19-year-old’s services, it’ll be interesting to see how the England youngster now fits into manager Mauricio Pochettino’s plans and everyone wonders when we’ll get our first sight of him in the shirt.
With the deal finally going through last night, Sessegnon took to social media to speak about his delight at finally signing on the dotted line for us and I think plenty of fans will find his opening comments very positive.
I am absolutely delighted and buzzing to have signed with @spursofficial. A club with a fantastic fan base and a place where I feel I can learn and improve as a player to take my game to the next level. I can’t wait to get started! ???? #COYS pic.twitter.com/A0jL4pMnG9

Good to see him saying ‘learn and improve’ so quickly as Poch will certainly be demanding that from him as he’s a long way to go before he can be considered a finished product, despite how highly rated he already is.
