Exclusive: Mills drops Salah claim after Tottenham star agrees 20/21 exit

Ryan Sessegnon still has a big future at Tottenham despite his move to Hoffenheim, according to Danny Mills.

The former Whites and Manchester City defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, pointed to Mohammed Salah and Kevin de Bruyne’s time at Chelsea as reasons why the 20-year-old can still succeed at Spurs.

The London club today confirmed that the wide-man had joined Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim on a season-long loan deal.

Mohammed Salah and Kevin de Bruyne failed to establish themselves in the Premier League after big-money moves to Stamford Bridge.

The pair were eventually sold abroad by Chelsea but have since returned to England and  enjoyed great success at Liverpool and Manchester City respectively.

When asked by Football Insider if Sessegnon still has a future at Spurs, Mills said:

“I think it is a good move for him. He has had a taste of regular first team football with Fulham and once you have had that you need to play.

“Sessegnon needs to keep playing because if you don’t you can fall by the wayside. It can then become a problem. Once that happens your career starts heading backwards.

“I still think he has a big future at Spurs. Players have up and downs. Look at Mo Salah and Kevin de Bruyne, they left Chelsea. Sometimes a move like this can be the making of a player.”

Sessegnon started just four Premier League games for the Lilywhites last season after completing a £25million move from London rivals Fulham.

Across all competitions he played 12 games for Tottenham, scoring once and providing one assist.
