Fulham's teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon ready for Premier League

Aston Villa vs Fulham

GETTY Aston Villa vs Fulham Who will come out on top at Wembley

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce is prepared to extend his managerial career into a 21st season - if the Championship club still want him.

This is a manager whose teams play flowing football, usually passing out from the back, but equally one with the pragmatism to realise that sometimes a more direct approach can be useful too.

Sessegnon inspired Fulham to victory at Wembley on Saturday. "We deserved it. It's not easy to play at Wembley, there is a lot of pressure", said Jokanovic.

Khan purchased Fulham in 2013 while the club was still in the Premier League, but the London-based Cottagers were relegated to the second-tier League Championship the following season after 13 years at the top level.

Fulham held off Aston Villa to win the play-off final 1-0 and return to the Premier League for the first time since 2014.

The 18-year-old has earned rave reviews for his performances this season, with speculation rife about which top-flight side would secure his signature in the close season.

Teenager Ryan Sessegnon received the ball midway inside Villa's half, evaded a tackle, and turned to play a through ball that Cairney calmly slotted past keeper Sam Johnstone.

Midfielder Cairney is confident the side will not be broken up. But football won today.

It is understood, as is the case for most teams chasing promotion, that Villa had drawn up two lists of potential targets depending on where they would be playing next season.

They were perfectly capable of time-wasting and utilising other dark arts, just like the rest of them. For a team that froze on the final day of the regular Championship season, in turn forcing them into the play-offs, they displayed enormous steel, fight, and plenty of personality here.

Manchester United want him, so do Tottenham, while Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked, but Ryan Sessegnon is going to remain at Fulham next season.

A central defender, a right winger, central midfield reinforcements and at least one striker in addition to Mitrovic, should be top of Fulham's shopping list.
