Moussa Sissoko Announces His Move to Tottenham Before Club

Moussa Sissoko Announces His Move to Tottenham Before Club

Moussa Sissoko is officially a Tottenham player – according to the French midfielder.

Fans would have been waiting for news of his transfer from Newcastle to Spurs breaking on Sky Sports News or the club’s Twitter account before the transfer deadline.

But the news has came from Sissoko himself, with the former Toon Army man sharing a picture on Twitter holding the Spurs shirt and confirming he’s signed a five-year contract at White Hart Lane:

It looked like Sissoko was heading for Everton after the Goodison Park club agreed a £30million fee for his transfer.

But Tottenham matched that bid late in the night, leading to Everton withdrawing their interest and Sissoko hammering out personal terms with Spurs.

The transfer still hasn’t been announced by Spurs, but Sissoko’s tweet is a clear indication that confirmation will come within the next two hours.

He’s been linked with a move away from Newcastle ever since his strong performances for France at Euro 2016.

Sissoko played in six games as Les Bleus went to the final before losing out to Portugal 1-0 in extra time.

This switch to Tottenham might not be the Real Madrid move he reportedly wanted, but it’s a return to the Premier League for Sissoko and gives him the chance to prove he’s not a dud after suffering relegation with Newcastle last term.
