RYAN SESSEGNON will be given a shot in the Spurs side next season after Jose Mourinho reportedly rebuffed loan interest.

Barcelona and Celtic both came calling in search of a temporary move for the 20-year-old, according to The Athletic.

Ryan Sessegnon is set to stay at Spurs and be given a go under Jose Mourinho

Sessegnon made a £25million switch from Fulham after they were relegated last summer but failed to have the desired impact in his first season at Tottenham.

The English youngster made just 12 first-team appearances after struggling with injury.

He saw the manager who signed him, Mauricio Pochettino, sacked and replaced with Mourinho in November.

Sessegnon is comfortable anywhere on the left-hand side and will be given more of a chance to shine in Mourinho’s starting XI in the upcoming campaign.

Spurs have had plenty of interest in a loan move for the highly-rated England Under-21 international.

Reports suggested he could be in line for a return to old club Fulham after Scott Parker’s side won promotion back to the Premier League in the Championship play-off final.

Sessegnon made his name at Craven Cottage after bursting onto the scene as a 16-year-old.

And his twin brother Steven still turns out for the West London side.

But the report states Spurs also fielded interest from European big-hitters AC Milan, Ajax and Bayer Leverkusen.

However, Spurs have got him on a strength and conditioning plan to try and bulk up and show he can excel under Mourinho this year.

The club are not thought to be entertaining the thought of letting him leave.

And he made a flying start to preparations for the new campaign after notching Spurs’ first goal in pre-season today.
