While it was all about the incomings at Tottenham this summer, there were also several departures and among them was Ryan Sessegnon.
The left-back joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim on loan on deadline day, electing to leave White Hart Lane in search of regular playing time.
The youngster will be hoping the move to Germany can get his stuttering career back on track, and work out as well as it has for the likes of Jadon Sancho.
This week saw Sessegnon making his full debut in the Europa League, starting at left-back in the 2-0 win over Red Star and earning himself positive reviews from Fussball Transfers.
They say his full debut was a ‘first indication’ of how his loan spell with the club could go, essentially saying it was mostly positive.
They say the Tottenham loanee’s ‘skills flashed’ in the ‘small moments’ in the game, such as a decent run with the ball or an ‘elegant flowing movement’ that saw him have a shot on goal.
According to the website, Sessegnon showed that he could ‘maintain the reputation of an exceptional talent’ which he earned in England with his displays for Fulham.
There were some moments where ‘efficiency fetishist’ José Mourinho wouldn’t have been happy, so it wasn’t a complete display by any means but FT describe his debut as ‘decent, albeit inconspicuous’.
That will presumably come as good news to Tottenham, who could really do with Sessegnon shining in Germany and rediscovering the form that made him such a hot commodity a few years ago.
