RYAN SESSEGNON is giving few clues away over his Fulham future despite talk growing over a summer transfer.

Sessegnon, 18, could fetch around £40million even though the Cottagers slid into the Championship.

The youngster’s contract expires next summer and he finds himself at a bit of a crossroads in his career.

SunSport revealed last week that Mauricio Pochettino is trying to persuade Sessegnon to join Tottenham.

Manchester United have also been monitoring his services, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set to completely overhaul his squad at the end of the season.

SunSport also cited other reports suggesting that Juventus are also interested in striking a deal for the highly-rated left-back.

But Sessegnon has kept his cards close to his chest and didn’t want to speculate too much over whether he will stay or go.

He said: “I’m still a Fulham player, contracted until 2020.

“So I’m still a Fulham player and in terms of that, that’s all I can say at the moment.”

PREM PROBLEMS

While Sessegnon was firing last term, hitting 16 goals in the Championship, his return has dropped off this season, managing just two goals and supplying six assists.

After losing his place under Claudio Ranieri, Sessegnon has worked his way back into the first team under Scott Parker.

And Sessegnon is convinced Parker should be allowed to bring Fulham back up to England’s top flight.

He added: “When he [Parker] was a player he was such an intelligent player.


“And he’s just brought his knowledge of his playing time into management really.

“Everyone just wants to play for him. Everyone respects him highly at the club and when you respect someone so highly it’s easy to get everyone motivated for games.

“I think he’s the right man to bring this club back to the Premier League.”
