There’s no doubting that the 2017 / 2018 season has been a remarkable one for our very own Ryan Sessegnon.
Still just 17-years-of-age, Ryan has become a regular in the starting eleven, at Craven Cottage, impressing week-in and week-out, as Fulham look towards promotion to the Premier League, from the Championship.
His form has also seen him called up for the England U21 squad with the suggestion also being mooted he could be a surprise contender for a place in Gareth Southgate’s 2018 World Cup squad this summer.
But perhaps the cherry on the cake is the announcement that the teenager is one of the six-nominations for the 2018 Professional Footballers Association Young Player of the Year, with the full nomination list reading:
• Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)
• Leroy Sane (Manchester City)
• Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)
• Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)
• Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)
• Ederson (Manchester City)
What makes Sessegnon’s inclusion even more remarkable is that he is the first-ever nomination for the award from outside the top-tier of English football.
The last two seasons have seen Tottenham’s Harry Kane claim the award could the name of Ryan Sessegnon be on the trophy this time around?
