Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has been sent a warning over Ryan Sessegnon with his future in the balance. The former Fulham star signed for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga on loan for the season in the summer transfer window.
Tottenham star Sessegnon has told the club he is prepared to move away if he does not get the chances he feels he deserves.
It comes after being shipped out on loan to Hoffenheim for the season after failing to impress Mourinho.
Under the Portuguese coach, the youngster barely got a look in and was largely left out of the matchday squad altogether.
But the club rate him extremely highly and did not want to lose him for good, but were prepared to let him garner first-team experience elsewhere.
And he has done exactly that in the Bundesliga, playing every league match for Hoffenheim before suffering an injury in January that has ruled him out since.
Regardless, Sessegnon already has his sights set on a return to north London with the view of making it or moving on.
The 20-year-old said: “Of course, my aim is to go back to Spurs and try and break into that team and play, make myself a figure in the team.
“But if that isn’t possible next season or in the future then I want to come back to a league or a club to regain that experience.
“If Tottenham want to play in a four of a five, I see myself in a five as a left wing back or in a four I want to fight for that left back spot as well. That’s always the aim, never changed.
“My defensive side of the game in terms of one-on-ones and being aggressive on the front foot have improved since being out here.
“But English clubs need to be prepared that if they don’t play their young players that there will be clubs like Hoffenheim who will take them on loan.
“And then if they come back to their clubs and England and they think they are still not ready then be prepared for an offer for other clubs to come get them.
“When the time is right to go back we will see.”
A number of youngsters from England have taken the bold step to move to Germany to further their developments, including Arsenal pair Reiss Nelson and Emile Smith Rowe.
But during the pandemic, it has been tougher for Brits abroad being so far away from their families but Sessegnon has made it work.
He added: “I like where I am living at the moment. It is a nice peaceful area by the river. I like to take a walk down by there. I am just a cool, calm person.
“It is a bit different to London where it is more hectic with a lot of people but here there are a lot of peaceful things like the trees, the snow, everything.
“I am with my girlfriend. My family haven’t been able to come out, but if I was here by myself I think my mind would have went a long time ago. To have her here is good.”
