Danny Mills said on Sky Sports News on Wednesday evening (8:11pm, August 7, 2019) that Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon will be a squad player at Tottenham Hotspur.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham are interested in signing Sessegnon from Championship club Fulham in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that the Premier League outfit have agreed a £30 million with the Cottagers over the transfer of the 19-year-old left-back.

 

Former Manchester City right-back Mills has given his take on the speculation, and he believes that the teenager - who can also operate as a left wing-back - is a long-term prospect at the Whites.

Mills said about Sessegnon on on Sky Sports News on Wednesday evening (8:11pm, August 7, 2019): “He is a squad player, isn’t he? That’s what he is going to be. He is one for the future.”

Mills added: “He will have to be patient. He will clearly not go straight into the first team. A player that they will develop, and worst case, Tottenham will increase his value over the next couple of years. If he doesn’t quite make it at Tottenham, they will be able to sell him on for profit.”

Good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?

Sessegnon is one of the best young players in England, and there is no doubt that the Fulham left-back will be a good signing for Tottenham in the summer transfer window.

True, the English youngster did not have a great time in the Premier League for Spurs last season, but he can only improve and develop working under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
