Having been released in July 2016 by West Bromwich Albion after three years at The Hawthorns, the pacy attacker who can play as a wide forward or as a striker, Sessegnon had been linked with moves to Burnley and Sunderland during the 2016 summer transfer window. Born on 1st June 1984, he began his career with Requins in his homeland before moving to France with Ligue 2 club Creteil in July 2004 and then Ligue 1 side Le Mans in July 2006.

He swapped Paris for Sunderland in a £6m deal in January 2011, scoring 18 goals in two years, before a club-record fee – in excess of £6.5m – took him to West Bromwich Albion in September 2013, where he scored eight goals in 92 matches.
