Biography

Local lad Ryan Sessegnon joined Fulham, alongside twin brother Steven, in the summer of 2008, joining up with the Under-9s.

A left-sided defender with attacking instincts, he's risen through the ranks quickly, and was a regular for Steve Wigley's Under-18 side in 2015/16, despite being just 15 years of age.

His good form in the Academy did not go unnoticed by Slaviša Jokanović, who called Sessegnon up for First Team duties ahead of the new season, and he promptly scored his maiden senior goal in a 3-0 friendly win against Brighton & Hove Albion.

A debut was not far away as he started against Leyton Orient in an EFL Cup victory, and he made his first league appearance in the 1-1 draw at Leeds United shortly after.

Sessegnon is also a regular in the England Under-17 side, and competed alongside Fulham teammate Dennis Adeniran at the European Championship in the summer of 2016.
