Jokanovic accepts Sessegnon talk

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has admitted that talented teenager Ryan Sessegnon could leave the club in the near future.

The 17-year-old is being linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

He signed his first professional contract with Fulham in the summer but Jokanovic is unsure whether Sessegnon will still be at Craven Cottage this time next year.

"It's nice for him and for the club too," Jokanovic said of the speculation concerning the player. "And if you want to say, it's nice for myself, I must be satisfied because big clubs are interested in our player.

"I wish he is going to stay with me, but it's not in my control. I believe he's a clever man, believe the people around him are clever enough, he's played more than 50 games, he's 17.

"I know in the past in the last summer there's been interest around him but he took the decision to stay with us - a fantastic decision in my opinion."

Fulham are 4/6 to be promoted from the Championship this season, while Leeds United are 1500/1 to go up and Middlesbrough 9/1.
