Moussa Sissoko set to join Spurs

This deal has moved very quickly on Wednesday morning and the French National Team have now given Moussa Sissoko permission to leave in order to complete his transfer from Newcastle United to Spurs.

Sky Sports News recently reported that Tottenham had submitted a bid of around £16m for the 27-year-old Euro 2016 star.

Relegated to the Championship last season, Moussa Sissoko is yet to feature for Newcastle this season after stating his desire to play for a bigger team.

The French national team confirmed Moussa Sissoko’s departure on Twitter this morning. It is widely believed that Tottenham are his next destination.

The tweet reads: “Moussa Sissoko was given authorisation by Didier Deschamps to leave Clairefontaine at 9am to finalise a transfer”.
