On Friday evening, it was being claimed that Tottenham Hotspur were now close to agreeing a £30million transfer fee with Fulham for starlet Ryan Sessegnon.
The rumour mill has long linked us with an interest in the 19-year-old left sided talent this summer and even though Fulham manager Scott Parker has spoken confidently of keeping the player beyond the transfer window, the Daily Mail suggested that Parker would be leaving him out of the matchday squad on Saturday as they opened their campaign up against Barnsley given how close a deal now was.
Parker did in fact leave him out so plenty will be hoping that the Mail have actually got something right for a change.
Their original report stated that negotiations were now closing in on a £30million fee and talks are now at the final stages, so we could soon expect movement.
Interestingly they also claim that manager Mauricio Pochettino has rejected three incoming deals suggested by the Board, instead, wanting the club to focus on his preferred targets despite his recent words about the level of control he has.
