Fulham full back Steven Sessegnon is poised to join Bristol City on a season-long loan, according to reports this afternoon.

The newly-promoted Premier League club are keen for their promising right back to gain further first-team experience after breaking through into the senior side last season. The 20 year-old, who was handed his league debut by Scott Parker in a 2-1 win at Huddersfield last August, made fifteen appearances for the club last season, but was largely used as a substitute in the closing months of the campaign.

Several Championship sides were keen to take Sessegnon on loan, but it appears that Bristol City have won the race to sign the England youth international. Fulham are targeting bringing in a new right back ahead of their return to the top flight and Sessegnon, who won the World Cup with England’s under 17 side in 2017, would not be assured of regular football at Craven Cottage.
