​Fulham owner Khan confident Sessegnon will reject Man Utd, Spurs overtures

Fulham owner Shahid Khan says Ryan Sessegnon will not be leaving the club this summer.

Despite being only 17-years-old, Sessegnon is a first-team regular within the Fulham side and has established himself as one of the most in-demand young talents in English football.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham have all tracked the progress of the left-sided player.

"We don't want Sessegnon leaving," Khan said to TheTimes. "I don't think he wants to go.

"He's going to be at Fulham for the coming year, leading us into the Premier League.

"Frankly, if we had not been promoted, well, we have a responsibility to our players.

"He's been there since he was eight. We want to do the right thing for him and he is Fulham through and through. He is going to be there next season."
