Sessegnon has impressed in behind Steven Fletcher so far this season but could be asked to play on the left flank once more with the January arrival of Danny Graham.
However, he insists that he is happy to help out wherever he is required.
"When you're playing out wide, you have more of the chance to run with the ball and you have a bit more space in which to operate," he told the Sunderland Echo.
"It's somewhere where I haven't played regularly for a while, but I'm happy to stay there if the manager wants. He's the one who picks the team.
"It's true that the signing of Danny has given us more options and he's done well in his two appearances so far. Hopefully he can continue to do well for us, but it's a decision for the manager over how he uses Danny and Fletch."
Sunderland are currently 13th in the Premier League.
