Fulham have opened talks with versatile English teenager Ryan Sessegnon about a new long-term deal.

Negotiations are understood to be at their early stages, although there is confidence they will be resolved without any major issue.

Sessegnon, 18, is one of the most highly-rated young players in England.

He is coveted by a number of leading clubs, including Tottenham, but, at the moment, has no interest in leaving Craven Cottage.

Sessegnon has made 89 appearances for Fulham since making his debut in August 2016 when he was 16.
