Tottenham Hotspur have been frustrated with their inability to call upon summer signing Ryan Sessegnon so far this season.

Spurs signed the 19-year-old from Fulham for £25m during the transfer window prior to the start of the Premier League campaign, however he has been unable to make his debut as of yet.

Sessegnon picked up a hamstring injury while on England Under-21 duty, which has left Tottenham unable to unleash the big-money signing.

The Spurs youngster can play at left-back and on the left-wing, with his pace making him a dangerous attacking threat in either position.

Sessegnon has returned to Tottenham training now though, and the club’s former goalkeeper Paul Robinson wants to see the 19-year-old utilised as soon as possible.

“He’s going to be a big boost to them,” Robinson told Football Insider.

“Obviously he was signed with the intention of playing him and not being able to do that has been difficult for the manager and probably more so for him as well.

“He’s going to be a huge boost to the squad and the starting XI in what is a difficult time at the moment for Spurs.

“I don’t think he’s a young player that needs any kind of introduction into the first team. 

“He’s proven himself, is a proven player and Spurs have bought a player that’s ready to play in the first team.”

Tottenham have endured a disappointing start to the season, with just one win in their last six outings in all competitions, including a 3-0 loss to Brighton in the Premier League prior to the international break.

Whether the introduction of Sessegnon would make a huge difference to the fortunes of Mauricio Pochettino’s side is yet to be seen, however his return fitness would be a boost to the squad as a whole.
