David Sesay
David Sesay

David Sesay is attracting interest from a number of Championship clubs and it’s easy to see why, with the 21-year-old a model of consistency for Crawley Town in his first full season as a professional.

The exciting youngster joined the Red Devils following his release from Watford in 2018 and David impressed immediately, excelling when used at the back and even netting the winning penalty against Tottenham Hotspur U23s in a penalty shoot-out in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Able to play at right or left back, Sesay boasts a presence and calmness that belies his years. The youngster was called up to the Kenyan national team in March in 2019, though he turned down the offer to focus on Crawley’s relegation battle.
