Sessegnon shortlisted for PFA Young Player of the Year award

Ryan Sessegnon has received yet more recognition for his fabulous season with Fulham by being shortlisted for the PFA’s Young Player of the Year award – becoming the first nominee from outside the top flight since the awards began in 1983.

The seventeen year-old, who has fourteen goals in 45 appearances for Fulham this season, has been nominated alongside Manchester City trio Ederson, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford as well as Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Sessegnon, who has been linked with a whole host of leading European clubs, is expected to feature for Fulham in tonight’s crunch local derby with Brentford as they continue their push for automatic promotion back to the Premier League. The teenage winger has already scooped a double at this year’s London Football Awards and made his England under-21 international debut during a stunning season.

Sessegnon wins PFA Championship player of the month award

Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon has won the PFA’s Championship player of the month award for January after earning the votes of football fans up and down the country.

The 17 year old, who was the subject of fevered speculation during last month’s transfer window, receives the accolade after scoring six league goals – two more than anyone else – as Fulham made a 100% start to 2018.

Sessegnon, who along with his twin brother Steven came through the Fulham academy after joining the club aged nine, comfortably won the PFA’s online vote – taking 27% of the total votes and finishing nine percentage points clear of his nearest challenger, the Norwich City midfielder James Maddison.

Sessegnon, who signed a three-year contract with Fulham in the summer after rejecting interest in his services from across Europe, has recently moved into the left wing position after the Whites completed the signing of Southampton full back Matt Targett on loan until the end of the season a fortnight ago.
