Fulham is not planning to sell Ryan Sessegnon according to vice-chairman and director of football Tony Khan, who described the teenager as "key" to the Cottagers' squad.

Sessegnon enjoyed a superb season as Fulham clinched promotion to the Premier League in 2017-18, making 48 Championship appearances and scoring 16 goals for Slavisa Jokanovic's side.

The 18-year-old has been linked with a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur but Khan posted a message on his Twitter account to refute suggestions that Sessegnon might be allowed to leave Craven Cottage.

"We're not selling Ryan Sessegnon," said Khan, adding, "We've never considered it! I couldn't sit back and read these false rumours anymore, had to say something. Ryan's key to this Fulham squad; he's one of the top young talents worldwide and in our plans for Premier League success. Come on Fulham!"
