Spurs: Update reveals Tottenham stance on new Sessegnon agreement

Tottenham Hotspur have not opened ‘talks’ over a new contract for wing-back Ryan Sessegnon, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The 21-year-old’s existing deal doesn’t expire until the summer of 2025, but he has been enjoying a mini resurgence under the tutelage of new manager Antonio Conte.

What is the latest news involving Sessegnon?

Sessegnon was one of the most promising and highly-rated youngsters in English football prior to his move to Tottenham after excelling with boyhood club Fulham.

Throughout 2017/18, the England Under-21 international racked up 16 goals and provided a further eight assists across 49 Championship appearances as the Cottagers won promotion via the play-offs.

Despite Fulham’s immediate relegation from the Premier League, Sessegnon still registered eight goal contributions the following season in his maiden top-flight campaign.

The versatile youngster’s impressive exploits clearly caught the eye of the Spurs hierarchy who splashed out £25 million to secure his services, but things haven’t gone to plan since then.

Injuries and a drop-off in form limited Sessegnon to just 772 minutes of action in all competitions during 2019/20, leading to a season-long loan spell at Hoffenheim last term.

In Germany, the left-sided dynamo got his career back on track with two goals and three assists in 29 outings, and he’s slowly becoming an influential figure for Conte.

What has Jones said about Sessegnon?

Sessegnon featured from the off in just two of Conte’s opening 10 Premier League games at the helm for a variety of reasons, yet he’s working his way back into the side of late.

The 5 foot 10 ace has overtaken previous first-choice left-back Sergio Reguilon in the pecking order, starting Tottenham’s last three fixtures in a row, although Jones has revealed a fresh contract is not on the table at this moment in time.

He told GiveMeSport: “I don’t think they have offered him a new contract, to be honest. From what I understand, there are no active talks on this.”

Does Sessegnon deserve a new deal?

If Sessegnon starts against Everton on Monday, then it will be his longest run in the Tottenham starting lineup since his switch to north London, and there’s every chance that that could happen.

Did Tottenham Hotspur sign Moussa Sissoko on transfer deadline day in 2016?

As per WhoScored, Sessegnon put in his best performance of the season last time out against Leeds, achieving a match rating of 7.77 after notching his first assist of 2021/22.

Nevertheless, with just over three years left to run on his £53,000-per-week deal, Spurs will surely want to see similar displays on a far more regular basis before offering fresh terms.
