Newcastle line up transfer move for Tottenham forgotten man Ryan Sessegnon as Steve Bruce eyes British bargains
STEVE BRUCE will offer Ryan Sessegnon a way out of his Tottenham limbo as he pursues a plan to buy British – and in bulk.
The Newcastle boss will be working on a very tight budget this summer.
He is likely to have only have around £30million spare cash to spend – a far cry from the riches that would have been available had a £300m Saudi-backed takeover gone through.
Bruce believes there are bargains to be had amongst home – grown players this summer.
Sessegnon, 20, tops his list of targets.
And he wants to take the wing back who played only a dozen times for Spurs last season on loan.
Bruce has already joined Southampton and Leeds United in a £20m battle for winger Harry Wilson.

Striker Callum Wilson who was his name sake’s team-mate at Bournemouth last season is also high on his list of targets.
Especially now that he looks like he will lose out to Sheffield United who are hot favourites to sign Wigan front-man Antonee Robinson.
Norwich’s Ben Godfrey, who can play centre back and in midfield is another name high on his list.
But Bruce faces stern competition from Bayer Leverkusen and AC Milan for the England Under-21 star.
Godfrey was one of the few successes of the Canaries’ doomed Premier League campaign.
Price could also be an issue, with Norwich looking for £30m.
That fee would wipe out Bruce's whole kitty – although he could raise some cash with the sales of Ciaran Clark and Christian Atsu.
