Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge has predicted Ryan Sessegnon to go out on loan in January.
Sessegnon joined Tottenham from Fulham in 2019 for £25m, but has endured a stop-start career in north London and desperately needs to get out and start playing regular football.
What’s the latest news with Sessegnon?
The 21-year-old has made just 14 appearances in a Spurs shirt but is remarkably already playing under his fourth manager in a little more than two years since he made the trip across the capital.
He did score against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, which led to Danny Rose calling him a “big threat” but Sessegnon’s first campaign was overshadowed by Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking, which led to a lack of opportunities.
He got himself back on track following a productive loan spell in the Bundesliga last season but has only made two European outings this term and doesn’t appear to have found out his best position.

Getting in ahead of the likes of Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura appears a difficult task in the forward areas, whilst Sergio Reguilon and Ben Davies have nailed down the left-back spots.
Sessegnon is currently out injured, but if he were fit and available, the majority of his chances would most likely be coming in the Europa Conference League.
Therefore, something has to give, and Bridge reckons that a temporary move away from Tottenham in the January window is the likeliest outcome.

What did Bridge say?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “I’d imagine he will go out on loan in January if he’s fit. That would be my prediction.”
Does Sessegnon have a future at Tottenham?
It’s easy to forget that he’s just 21-years-old and still has his whole career ahead of him.
However, it does feel like Sessegnon is chasing a lost battle at Tottenham. Granted, his chances at the club have not been often enough, but it feels like he’s some way down the pecking order in almost every position.
Unless something changes drastically, it doesn’t appear like he’s going to end up ever making the grade at Tottenham and should therefore be looking for a fresh start elsewhere.
