Ryan Sessegnon has ended speculation around his future, at least in the short-term, by signing a three-year deal to remain with Championship side Fulham.
The 17-year-old burst onto the scene last season and was heavily linked with a Premier League club thsi summer as a result of performances in the first-team.
Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal were all rumoured to be interested in his services but Sessegnon has committed his future to the Cottagers.
Speaking to the club’s official website, via the Daily Mail, Sessegnon said: “I’m excited to see what’s in front of me at this club, hopefully we can all push on now. Last year I got a lot of opportunities from the gaffer, and I just want to continue that.”
Sessegnon made 30 senior appearances, including 25 in England’s second tier as he surprised many by quickly becoming a regular in Slavisa Jokanovic’s side.
However, it’s not a surprise the hot prospect has opted to remain in west London as his career development will improve significantly with Fulham, instead of the pressures that come with a lucrative switch to a Premier League side.
Sessegnon was named as part of the England U19s squad ahead of the European Championships, which start next week.
