Reports claim Fulham are resigned to losing Ryan Sessegnon in the summer after being relegated from the Premier League.

A 4-1 loss to Watford on Tuesday sealed the West Londoners’ fate and they will be back playing Championship football next season just one year after the euphoria of promotion.

It has been a tough campaign for both players and fans alike, with Scott Parker the third manager of the season as Slavisa Jokanovic and Claudio Ranieri were both sent packing after failing to inspire their charges.

It is thought that a number of Fulham stars will be seeking an exit to try and keep playing top-flight football, and there will be no shortage of suitors for Sessegnon, with Tottenham said to be keen on the England Under-21 midfielder.

Fulham put a £50million price-tag on the 18-year-old last summer to ward off and potential raiders and it appeared to do the trick, but it remains to be seen if his value has remained so high after a season of woe by the Thames.

The youngster has bagged two goals from 33 appearances in all competitions but it is tough to gauge just how effective he has been in a team devoid of confidence.

If Parker keeps the job, he will want a strong squad to push for immediate promotion but knows he will lose a few stars, with midfielder Jean Michael Seri also expected to quit at the end of the season.

He was a surprise £18m capture from French side Nice last summer but has been largely ineffective and the vultures will be circling to see how he fares in a better side. Fulham are 6.50 to finish bottom of the table, with Huddersfield 1.10.
