Tottenham complete £25m signing of Sessegnon from Fulham


Tottenham have clinched the signing of Fulham wing-back Ryan Sessegnon with just minutes remaining for the window to close.
In a race against time, Spurs wrapped up the £25 million signing which could be their final of the season after a deal for Juventus Paulo Dybala collapsed.
The fee for the 19-year-old could rise to £30m with add-ons, while the defender has signed a five-year deal at the club after undergoing a successful medical on Thursday.
Spurs midfielder Josh Onomah will move in the opposite direction as part of the deal, which was finally struck on Wednesday after months of negotiations.
Sessegnon has been recovering from a hamstring injury during pre-season so won’t be available for the opening games of the season after completing his Spurs switch.
Juventus are reported to have abandoned the Dybala deal after deciding to keep hold of one of their prized assets because they believe there is a lack of alternatives of suitable quality and value.
