Bristol City to Secure Steven Sessegnon Loan
Chance for First Team Action
Sessegnon broke into the senior side last season. However, the newly-promoted Premier League club is keen for its talented right back to gain more first-team experience.
The 20-year old was handed his league debut by Scott Parker in a 2-1 victory at Huddersfield last August. He made 15 club appearances last season. Yet, was mostly used as a replacement in the closing months of the campaign
The London club intends to balance their books ahead of their return to the Premier League. Resulting of this is a move for the youngster on loan. The Robins are claimed to have defeated a number of other clubs in the race to sign him.
With new manager Dean Holden preparing to play 3-5-2 this season, Sessegnon will step in well as a fresh right wing-back should they complete the move. Now that the Pedro Pereira loan has finished, the Robins will be prioritizing the right-back position ahead of the season.
Sessegnon will want to emulate brother Ryan’s success after he achieved a move to Tottenham last summer. Now becoming out of favour, he’ll be eagerly waiting for the progression of the deal.
Bristol, a club constantly looking to strive towards the premier league, could be the ideal place for Steven Sessegnon to gain more experience as they push for promotion.

New Boss Holden has continued adding to his squad despite not officially sealing the signing of Sessegnon as of yet.
The capture of Alfie Mawson has been confirmed. Experienced goal poacher Chris Martin has also joined the fold ass well as tenacious midfielder Joe Williams from Wigan. Sessegnon’s determined and persistent displays will not go a miss at Ashton gate and could see him become one of the championship’s stand out players.
Fulham will be eagerly anticipating Sessegnon’s performances to see whether he is ready for the step up to the Premier League.
