We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Former Tottenham keeper Paul Robinson has said that Ryan Sessegnon “needs to get out of Spurs” and said a loan move to Leeds would be much better for the youngster.
Sessegnon, 20, was signed by Mauricio Pochettino last summer for a big fee of £24m.
However, he only made six Premier League appearances last season and hasn’t played in the new campaign.
Athletic journalist David Ornstein has said that Sessegnon is expected to leave in the last week of the window and that Leeds are in the hunt for his signature.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News Robinson said, “Ryan Sessegnon needs to get out of Spurs. He’s not going to get much football, he didn’t get much football last season and he’s at an age now where he needs to get game time.
“Spurs paid a lot of money for him. At his age, when someone’s paid that much and he’s not playing… He’s not going to play, he needs to get out, he needs to get out on loan.
“Sessegnon is at the back of a long queue. At Fulham he was playing higher up the field, he was playing as a wing-back.
“The way Jose [Mourinho] plays, with the amount of attacking options he’s got, Sessegnon is not going to play and with Sergio Reguilon signing he’s not going to play at left-back.
“A loan move to Leeds would suit him.”
Leeds do have issues in the left-back position, with Stuart Dallas playing there out of position.
However, Dallas was one of the best players of the 19/20 season and put in a brilliant performance against Sheffield United at the weekend.
We don’t think a loan player is the answer for Leeds.
