Biography

Twin brother of Ryan Sessegnon, Steven is a versatile youngster who is capable of playing full-back, centre-half or holding midfield. Suffered a very unfortunate knee injury playing for England Under-16s alongside Ryan in America in 2015/16, but battled back to make his comeback for Fulham U18s early on the following season.

The following season he was a mainstay in the team, often selected to captain the side. He was also called up to the PL2 side by Peter Grant, and helped England Under-17 qualify for the Euros being held in the summer. 

In the summer of 2017 he signed his first professional contract alongside his brother, a three-year deal, and subsequently went on to make his senior debut in the 2-0 Carabao Cup victory over Wycombe Wanderers in August.

In October 2017, he played a key role in England's Under-17 World Cup win, featuring five times - including in the Final - and laying on a number of assists as the Young Lions brought the trophy home from India.

Sessegnon later earned a new deal at Fulham, committing his future until the summer of 2022, with a Club option to extend by a further 12 months.
