On-loan Hoffenheim full-back Ryan Sessegnon has said that he would be willing to find a transfer elsewhere if he cannot get into the Tottenham team next season.
The 20-year-old moved to Germany in October after struggling for game time since his 2019 move from Fulham.
Indeed, his decision has proved a wise one to date, the Englishman earning a regular role in the team. He made eight 90-minute stints in his first 10 games, but has not played since due to a thigh injury.
Sessegnon hopes to return for next week’s Europa League second-leg match against Molde (as per football.london). However, he has designs over a role in the Spurs first-team in the longer-term.
Speaking to DW, though, he insisted that he would not endure a snub similar to what Dele Alli and Gareth Bale have experienced this season.
“Of course my goal is to return to Spurs and try to get into this team,” Sessegnon said.
“But if that is not possible in the next season or in the future, I would, of course, like to play in a league or a club where I can gain even more experience. And then we’ll see.
“Try a different culture, a different league, a different language and don’t be afraid because it’s a great opportunity!
“You will come back as a different person and a better player.”
Sessegnon moved to Spurs in the summer of 2019 after a meteoric rise with Fulham. He announced himself as one of England’s brightest young talents in the 2017/18 campaign, leading the Cottagers to Premier League promotion.
In fact, he scored 15 goals and assisted eight others, including by setting up Tom Cairney’s goal in the play-off final. He earned 35 Premier League appearances in the following campaign.
