Ryan Sessegnon has suggested that he is enjoying his time on loan at Hoffenheim.
In the summer 2019 transfer window, the Spurs signed Sessegnon from Fulham for a £ 25 million fee from Fulham.
The 20-year-old is a versatile left winger who can also play as a left back.
He struggled to gain playing time with José Mourinho last season and was sent on loan to German club Hoffenheim this summer.
Mourinho wanted him to play regularly, with limited match opportunities at Spurs following the arrival of Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilón.
Sessegnon has been impressive for the German club. He has made 16 appearances for the Bundesliga team, scoring two goals and providing two assists thus far.
Speaking of his time in Germany, he said it has been “eventful” and added that it has been a “great opportunity” for him.
“I am learning more about myself as a person and as a player.” he told Hoffenheim’s social media channels (h / t Football London).
“It has been a great opportunity. In a word, it was an event, because, of course, I was playing games regularly and I think that in most of the games I also played well, with some games not so well. “
Sessegnon suffered a thigh injury and missed most of Hoffenheim’s games in 2021. He missed seven straight Bundesliga games, but the youngster now hopes to return soon.
“I’m progressing very well and I think the next time they see me on the pitch it will be maybe next week, hopefully in the Europa League.”
Sessegnon is a highly valued young talent and Mourinho will be pleased with his effort thus far. He will be looking to finish the season strong and then impress Mourinho in the preseason.
The Spurs have enough depth in their offensive midfield ranks, and unless they send in some of the players like Gareth Bale, Dele Alli or Erik Lamela, it’s hard to see players like Sessegnon or Jack Clarke playing regularly for North Londoners next. season.
