Tottenham transfer news: Ryan Sessegnon joins Hoffenheim on loan

Ryan Sessegnon had only been named in one Tottenham squad this season

Tottenham’s Ryan Sessegnon has joined German club Hoffenheim on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old, who has played as a left-back and a winger, joined Spurs from Fulham for £25m in August 2019 but has struggled to make an impact.

The Englishman has made 12 appearances for the Premier League club and had not featured during 2020-21.

Hoffenheim are sixth in the Bundesliga after three games and will also compete in this season’s Europa League.

Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson – Sessegnon’s fellow England Under-21 international – had a successful loan spell with the German side during the 2018-19 season, making 29 appearances and scoring seven goals.
