Spurs warn Barcelona off starlet Sessegnon

Tottenham are determined to keep hold of Ryan Sessegnon.

The Daily Star says Spurs will reject all offers for Sessegnon this summer.

Barcelona are leading the chase for the out-of-favour Spurs wing-back, who rarely figures in Jose Mourinho's starting eleven in N17.

However, despite being stuck on the sidelines under the Portuguese coach, Sessegnon, 20, is not for sale, according to sources close to the club.

Spurs paid £25million to land the England Under-21 international from Fulham last summer.

But he has endured a frustrating first season with the North Londoners making just six league starts to date - and was not even among the subs in the recent draw against Everton.

Spanish giants Barcelona want both Sessegnon, who made his first-team debut with Fulham at 16, and another of Spurs' big-money outcasts, Tanguy Ndombele.
