Ryan Sessegnon has been impressive on his loan to Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga.
The 20-year-old … who joined Spurs from Fulham for £ 25 million in the summer of 2019 (signed by Mauricio Pochettino) – moved to Hoffenheim in the summer transfer window on loan.
The Spurs highly value the young left-back (who can play as a left-back) and want him to get regular matches and return to the North London club next season as a revitalized player.
Spurs have a large number of attacking midfielders, and following the arrival on loan of Gareth Bale from Real Madrid, Sessegnon was always going to struggle to gain playing time this season. Similarly, the Spurs have Ben Davies and Sergio Reguilon as left-back options, and he would have struggled to land a regular starting job in defense as well.
His move to Germany is proving successful. He has made nine appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal and providing an assist. The youngster won the player of the month award for November at the Bundesliga club, and has sparked excitement among Spurs fans.
These are some of the selected tweets from Spurs fans:

This is fantastic news. I said if he went to a club that knows how to play with him, he would be a great player.

Sessegnon has said (via Twitter) that he appreciates the support of the club and that it means a lot to him to be voted the player of the month by the fans.
The youngster played in all four of Hoffenheim’s Bundesliga games last month. He scored his first goal for the club against Stuttgart and recorded an assist against Mainz.
He is a fantastic young talent, and Spurs fans will expect him to return to the club next summer as a mature and well-rounded player who can make an impact on the first team.
Spurs boss José Mourinho also likes young Jack Clarke, who has appeared in Europa League games this season. In Clarke and Sessegnon, the Spurs have two high-quality talents who could become key players for the senior team for years to come.
