Steven's Pro Deal

Wednesday 28 June 2017 16:03

The Club is delighted to confirm that Steven Sessegnon has signed a professional deal with Fulham.

A versatile player, Sessegnon has been at Fulham for nine years, having joined alongside twin brother Ryan back in 2008.

He has now agreed a three-year deal that ties him to the Club until June 2020.

Like his brother, he has received international recognition for England, most recently helping them qualify for this summer’s Under-17 European Championships.

After recovering well from a knee injury suffered whilst representing England Under-16s some time earlier, Sessegnon went on to make 21 appearances for Fulham’s Under-18 side in 2016/17.

He also made his debut for Peter Grant’s PL2 outfit towards the latter stages of the campaign.

“It feels very good to sign, I’m very happy to get it done,” Sessegnon told fulhamfc.com. “Fulham is a family club, and I have it in my heart a lot.

“I think about the success this Club has had and where we used to be, and I hope we can get back to it. I’m hoping this year I can have an injury-free season. The more I play, the better I can get.”

Tony Khan, Vice Chairman and Director of Football Operations, said: “Steven brings immense promise to Fulham and has a very impressive skill set of his own.

“He follows in the example of his twin brother in his maturity, his loyalty to his teammates, and his overall commitment to football. 

“Steven is developing rapidly, and while he has a lot of hard work ahead of him, the Club believes in Steven. We are confident that he’s up to the challenge and will take advantage of this opportunity that he’s earned.”
