Ryan Sessegnon joined Tottenham Hotspur on transfer deadline day, with Josh Onomah heading to Fulham.
Josh Onomah has told Fulham’s official website that he is expecting Ryan Sessegnon to be a success at Tottenham after completing his deadline day move to join Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Sessegnon’s future at Craven Cottage seemed to be permanently on the agenda from the moment that he burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old, and it appeared more than likely that he would move after Fulham were relegated after just one season back in the Premier League earlier this year.
It was Spurs who won the chase to land the 19-year-old, with his move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium being confirmed on the final day of the summer window. The deal also saw Onomah head in the opposite direction having come through the ranks with Tottenham.
And Onomah explained that he would love to see Sessegnon thrive and succeed with his now former club.
“I wish Sess the best as well. I know him, I know he’s going to settle in quickly and do well, and I wish all the best for him,” he told the club’s official website.
“He told me how great a club Fulham is, a massive club with great fans. He knows me, he knows my style of play, and he said I’d fit right in. That made me look forward to joining even more.”
It would not be a surprise if Sessegnon proved to be a fantastic signing for Tottenham. He left Fulham with a tremendous record considering that he can either play at left-back or further forward down the same flank.
He averaged better than a goal every five games for the Cottagers, and he should certainly find it easier to score for Spurs than he did for Fulham at the highest level given the quality of the players around him.
