Tottenham Hotspurs have pulled a sensational transfer deadline coup by signing France international Moussa Sissoko from relegated Newscastle just in time before the transfer curtain dropped.

Sissoko signed a contract which keep him a Hotspur until at least 2021. The 27year-old was fantastic at Euro 2016 and had been linked with possible moves to Real Madrid and Arsenal.

Newscastle wrote in a statement on Wednesday night: “Midfielder Moussa Sissoko has completed his transfer to Tottenham Hotspurs for an undisclosed fee.

“The 27-year-old France international arrived Tyneside in January 2013 from Toulouse and made 133 appearances in all competitions for the Magpies during threeand-a-half years at St. James Park scoring 12 goals.

“Sissoko’s final outing for United came in a 5-1 victory over his new side, Spurs, on the last day of the 2016-17 campaign.”

The Frenchman had pushed to leave Newcastle, arguing that he will be unable to keep his place in France national team if he played only Championship football.
