It’s always nice to hear a potential target of Newcastle’s talk in such glowing terms about our club, and that’s exactly what Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko has done today, after there was news a few days ago that Newcastle may have already wrapped up a deal for the 6’2″ box to box midfielder, who has been compared to Patrick Vieira, the former Arsenal and France player.
Moussa Sissoko – Newcastle are a fantastic team
The 5 times capped French international is due to become a free agent next summer, when his contract runs out at the only club he’s ever played for, and Newcastle may try to bring him to Tyneside in January for a nominal fee.
Graham Carr and the Newcastle scouts have watched Sissoko on a number of occasions over the last couple of years, and it could be that a deal to bring the Frenchmen has already been struck between Newcastle and Toulouse.
Certainly Moussa seems pleased with the recent links to the Premier League and in particular with the reports saying the Newcastle are interested in the player:
“To play in the Premier League would be a dream come true.” “It is a fantastic league and I enjoy watching it. Newcastle are a fantastic team and would be attractive to any player. I am no different.”
The name of Newcastle over the last couple of seasons has skyrocketed in Europe and especially in France, where Newcastle get a lot of their players from.
And according to Graham Carr, Newcastle is thought to be one of the best clubs in England, giving our links over the years to the many great French players who have worn the famous black and white striped shirts.
We really hope that Moussa Sissoko is the next one to land on Tyneside - he’s an excellent player.
