Why West Brom should sign David Sesay in the summer window

According to a report in Sun, Championship hopefuls West Bromwich Albion are tracking the highly-rated Crawley Town defender David Sesay. The 20-year-old arrived at the Broadfield Stadium from Watford on a two-year deal back in September of 2018. He is rated around £350,000.

Since then, he has made 13 appearances for the League Two side and his performances at fullback has caught the eye of a host of Championship clubs. West Brom is one of them.

The Baggies have been tracking Watford’s Academy product since he started playing senior football. However, Crawley Town would be eager to keep hold of the youngster, as they aim to play League One football next season. (Sun)

Though, Sesay has only one year of contract left in the summer, and with interests from big clubs, namely West Brom, the west Sussex side would struggle to keep him ahead of the start of next season. (Sun)

Here’s why Darren Moore’s men should do everything to sign the 20-year-old when the window re-opens:

West Brom’s need of quality at right-back

David Sesay predominantly a right-back, who can operate at centre-back or left-back. He has terrific pace and stamina to make runs up and down the field and impact a game of football on both ends as a fullback. His crossing in the final third is improving on a weekly basis, which is always a sign of a good player who is eager to learn and get better.

In terms of defending, the 20-year-old is good at making tackles and getting close to the opposition wide player when they are getting set to deliver the balls into the box. He still has few areas of his game to improve, but for a 20-year-old, Sesay is in the right place and ready to kick on in a team of a better quality. (with all due respect to Crawley Town)

Henceforth, West Brom mustn’t hesitate and sign him in the summer. From the Baggies’ point of view, they have Mason Holgate who is starting at right-back on a regular basis, but he is on loan from Everton. Thus, there is a rave possibility that he would go back to Goodison Park once this season gets over.

So, Darren Moore’s would anyway require a player who can take up that right-back slot and make it his own next season. David Sesay could be that man.
