Sessegnon 'to STAY at Tottenham in January after Davies injury'

Ryan Sessegnon ‘to STAY at Tottenham in January’ with Jose Mourinho sweating over his left back options after Ben Davies suffers ligament damage in victory over West Ham

  • Ryan Sessegnon is reportedly set to avoid being sent on loan in January 
  • Ben Davies’ injury leaves Jose Mourinho short on left back options at Tottenham 
  • The Welsh full-back suffered ligament damage in the 3-2 win over West Ham
  • It was believed Sessegnon would leave on loan in January to get more games 

Plans to send Ryan Sessegnon out on loan in January are reportedly set to be shelved with Jose Mourinho said to be concerned about his lack of left back options. 

The Sun report that Mourinho is having to rethink his treatment of youngster Sessegnon after it was announced Ben Davies faces an ‘extended period’ out on the sidelines having sustained ligament damage in the 3-2 win over West Ham. 

It was believed that Mourinho would send Sessegnon, 19, out on loan in January to allow him to get more first-team opportunities.

Jose Mourinho is concerned for his left back options after a serious injury to Ben Davies

The teenager is yet to start in the Premier League for Spurs having joined the club last summer under Mauricio Pochettino, arriving in a £25million switch from Fulham. 

His two appearances for the north London club have arrived from the bench – in the 1-1 draw against Everton and again as a substitute against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League. 

It is believed that the England Under-21 star will go on to be a regular for the club in the years to come and Davies’ spell out injured could see him thrust into the first team as his replacement.

Mourinho has been criticised in the past for his treatment of young players but he is said to be keen to work closely with Sessegnon to maximise his potential. 

It has been a 100 per cent start for Mourinho in his opening two games in charge since he came in to replace the axed Pochettino. 

Victory over West Ham, the game which saw Davies struck down with the serious injury, was followed up by a thrilling 4-2 win over Olympiacos in midweek. 

That was Mourinho’s first home game in charge and saw Tottenham book their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League, as they look to mirror their success last season and reach the final.
