Sessegnon says he never asked to leave Sunderland â€“ but when the Black Cats accepted West Bromâ€™s offer, he knew he was on his way out.
He said: â€œI didnâ€™t sense that I was going to leave Sunderland, but thatâ€™s the life of a footballer. If a club wants you and they accept an offer, then thatâ€™s what happens. Thatâ€™s football.
â€œI never asked to leave the club, but the club accepted the offer and then I had the choice to come to West Brom.
â€œItâ€™s football and I had the chance to continue playing in the Premier League. Itâ€™s a good opportunity for me."
