Danny Mills has suggested Ryan Sessegnon leaving Tottenham Hotspur on a permanent deal “could be good for all parties”.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Manchester City full-back suggested the lack of game time for Sessegnon last season would have been “soul-destroying”.
Football Insider revealed last week that Spurs had made a U-turn on the 20-year-old and are willing to listen to loan offers after they completed the capture of Sergio Reguilon.
Reguilon arrived from Real Madrid on Saturday after completing a £28million transfer including add-ons.
The Spaniard will battle it out with Ben Davies to be Jose Mourinho’s first-choice left-back with Danny Rose being deemed surplus to requirements in north London.
And now Mills believes Reguilon’s arrival could also spell the end for Sessengon’s time at the club.
He told Football Insider: “When you make these big moves and don’t play it can be soul-destroying at times.
“There’s a lot of excitement and you’re thinking ‘oh, I am going to a big club and I am a part of this’ but after a season or so you realise you’re not really a part of it anymore.
“You’re on the periphery, you’re on the fringes, you’re not really playing football.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if definitely a loan deal happened or if Spurs can do a permanent deal to get him out before the window shuts. That could be good for all parties.”
Sessegnon started just four Premier League games for Spurs 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.
