Championship sides West Bromwich Albion, Swansea City and Brentford are interested in signing Crawley Town right-back David Sesay, according to reports from The Sun (print edition, 25th July, page 57).
The 20-year-old has only been on the Red Devils’ books for a year, with the Sussex club signing him on a free transfer after his release from Premier League side Watford last summer.
It was a hugely disappointing campaign for Crawley in League Two last season, but Sesay really stood out at right-back, making 21 appearances in all competitions and displaying real athleticism down the flanks.
Brentford will also be looking to provide a back-up option to Henrik Dalsgaard, with Moses Odubajo leaving to sign for Sheffield Wednesday earlier on this summer.
It was only a matter of time before Sesay attracted interest from higher profile clubs up the footballing pyramid.
Having watched him on more than one occasion, you can tell that he has a massive future ahead – he often reads the game quite well, and going forward he is like lightning.
West Brom and Brentford definitely need to add back-up at right-back, and for a fee of only £350k, it’s surely worth a punt.
