City secure Sessegnon loan

Steven Sessegnon has joined the Robins on a season-long loan from Premier League outfit Fulham.

The 20-year-old right-back arrives ahead of the Robins’ 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship campaign, which kicks off against Coventry City this Saturday (September 12th, 3pm KO).

Sessegnon, an England Under-21 international who won the Under-17 FIFA World Cup three years ago, becomes Dean Holden’s fifth signing of the summer transfer window, following the arrivals of Joe Williams, Chris Martin, Alfie Mawson and Chris Brunt.

Bristol City CEO Mark Ashton said: “Steven is a highly thought of, exceptional young talent, who has had a glowing reference by Paul Simpson and Keith Downing, and we’re pleased to have secured him.”

City Head Coach Dean Holden said: “We have been tracking Steven for a while and we are excited about what he will bring to the squad. He will fit into the way we want to play and give us an attacking option down the right side.”

Sessegnon has spent his entire career with Fulham, where he progressed through the Academy before making his debut in a 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Wycombe Wanderers in 2017.

The West London side won promotion in that 2017/18 campaign but he wouldn’t make his Championship debut until last season, where he played 14 times to help secure Fulham’s successful promotion bid.

Sessegnon has represented England age groups from Under-16 to Under-21, lifting the Under-17 World Cup in 2017.
