Dutch giants have missed out on signing Ryan Sessegnon from Tottenham Hotspur after Sky Sports have reported that the English winger has agreed to join 1899 Hoffenheim on a season-long loan. The Dutch giants were interested in signing the 18-year-old on loan with an option to make the deal permanent next summer. However, Tottenham are keen on keeping the winger as they are still convinced of his potential.
