Spurs £25m bid for Fulham’s 17 year-old wonder kid rejected

COVETED: Ryan Sessegnon

TOTTENHAM'S £25million bid for Ryan Sessegnon has reportedly been rejected by Fulham.

The Craven Cottage star, 17, committed to Slavisa Jokanovic’s on a three-year deal in June.

England Under-19s star Sessegnon has attracted huge Premier League interest during the summer transfer window.

He is in the Fulham squad to face Leeds at Elland Road tonight despite Spurs’ interest, according to the Telegraph.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are also said to have an interest in Ryan’s twin brother Steven.

He made his first team debut in the EFL cup against Wycombe in August.

The siblings, who are from South West London, are reportedly happy at Fulham and have put no pressure on the club to sell.

Spurs’ offer for Ryan, however, would be close to the £25.5m Manchester United paid for Wayne Rooney in August 2004.

That fee for 18-year-old Roo remains the most ever paid for an English teenager footballer.
