Ryan Sessegnon could make a sensational return to Craven Cottage as Fulham are considering taking the young winger on loan from Tottenham following their Premier League return.

Scott Parker is known to be a huge admirer of Sessegnon, whose meteoric rise through the youth ranks at Motspur Park, culminated in assist at Wembley as the Whites beat Aston Villa to win the Championship play-off final two years ago. Fulham’s subsequent relegation from the top flight saw the former England under-21 international move to north London for a deal thought to be worth £25m plus Josh Onomah.

But Sessegnon’s career has stalled in a disappointing first season at Tottenham, where he originally struggled to overcome a knee injury and saw Mauricio Pochettino sacked. He made just two appearances under Pochettino, who was reportedly a big factor in persuading Sessegnon to move to Spurs, and didn’t feature at all under Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho is apparently keen to keep Sessegnon at Tottenham for the forthcoming campaign, with Barcelona’s rumoured speculative interest swiftly rebuffed, but a loan back to his boycott club could help the young winger resurrect both his career and confidence at the highest level. Sessegnon, who made his senior debut for Fulham at just sixteen, made 120 appearances for Fulham and could provide competition for the club’s latest Wembley hero, Joe Bryan, at left back as well as featuring further forward.
