Fulham have issued a hands-off warning to potential suitors of Ryan Sessegnon and insist the wonderkid won't be for sale in the summer transfer window.
Liverpool have been heavily linked with the 16-year-old, who GetWestLondon understand will sign a professional contract on his 17th birthday in May , as have many others including Sevilla and Tottenham.
But manager Slavisa Jokanovic insists he has assurances from the board that the young prodigy won't be for sale in the summer transfer window - something that is sure to be a blow to Liverpool's hopes of signing Sessegnon.
He said: "I am confident Ryan Sessegnon will be a Fulham player next season.
"For his age he is very talented player, it's a great project for the player and we all believe in front of him he will be brilliant and shine in the future
"At the same time I believe he’s in the right place to grow up and improve himself and he has many years in front of him in this profession and if he can follow him after a few years it's possible he will be better without us.
"If this is personal question I am sure we will resist and I'm fully confident, I have information from the board of the club that we are not thinking about this step and this player will not be in the transfer window what is in front of us.
"I didn't see so many players in this age with this condition, for one side we try to manage himself in a better way what we believe is better for us and for him too.
"His mind is clear and he is open to learn he understand very well there are many interested in him but at the moment he's managed the situation in a fantastic way
"I am sure he will continue in the same direction."
