The 17-year-old last week became the first player from outside the top flight to be shortlisted for the Professional Footballers' Association young player of the year award.

Sessegnon has been instrumental for Fulham in the second half of the season helping them build an impressive 21-match unbeaten run in the league but the winger was keen to praise his colleagues and manager for his progress, after his success at the EFL Awards.

Ryan Sessegnon has taken to Twitter to share with supporters his delight at winning the Championship Player of the Year award, while rival fans have extended their congratulations. "It is the team that has made me a professional and it's the team that has given me a chance".

According to a piece in the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing his signature with a £40 million-plus move for the wonder-kid but, to Sessegnon's credit, he has remained focused on his football with Fulham. I don't think you can tell until you play in the Premier League.

As well as the big prize, the teenager was also named EFL Young Player of the Year, as well as the Championship Apprentice of the Year, as well as being named in both the EFL Team of the Season and the EFL Club-Developed XI of the Season. The Fulham academy graduate then picked up the final award of the night, as he beat off competition from Cottagers team-mate Tom Cairney, and Ruben Neves to win the Championship Player of the Season.

"The gaffer has put a lot of confidence in me, as someone so young, he can only improve me as a player".
