Midfield Target Talks Again About Fantastic Newcastle?

Moussa Sissoko is on the radar screen of Newcastle United for a possible January move, although he is also being tracked by both Juventus and Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala, who are owned by Billionaire Suleyman Kerimov.

Moussa Sissoko – praises Newcastle again?

The 23 year-old has been talking to Yohan Cabaye about the Newcastle team and the local area, and he has (again?) come out and said he is flattered by interest from the Tyneside club:

“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.”

This is news today in the Daily Express, and we assume this is a new quote from the 5 times capped french International, who a few days ago said he was uncertain of where he would be moving to, when his contract runs out at Toulouse in the summer.

Sissoko has played almost 200 times for the French club with 23 gals since making his debut back in August of 2007, as a 17 year-old.

We have to hope that Newcastle are negotiating a deal with Toulouse to bring this 6’2″ central midfielder to Newcastle, and he can play in either the attacking or holding role in central midfield.

We need some new players at Newcastle in January, and this lad would be a terrific buy for the Magpies, but this quote seems suspiciously like the one we reported back on November 2nd.

So this could be old news being regurgitated by the Daily Express – but we suppose it’s worth showing it again – especially when there seems to be growing negativity in some quarters surrounding Newcastle right now, and especially directed towards the manager – Alan Pardew.

What do you think?

    Drowning in his own sorrows is too good for Ashley

    Ive seen him and he would add much needed pace and ability to a flat, misfiring Toon midfield. He is a very good player, whom I hope we sign in January.

    Somehow I just think NUFC will get outbid by other teams.
    according to goal.com, Marveaux is leaving in January. Thomas Ince in?? 😀

    Moussa is an absolute beast, would love it if we got him.

    Just about the previous thread, maybe the Europa league is winnable if we really went for it. I ‘d take mid-table obscurity with a European Cup win 😀

    Hope Sissoko has some success with Geordie gals as well ! He’d be a good buy. We need top quality Cabs cover, esp now we’re missing Guthrie.

    we all have our rolls in this blog 😉 i guese it is to open our minds to different views and different ways of thinking,,

    some look to the players for answers

    some look to the manager for answers

    some look to the chairman for answers while others look to the owner,,,

    now as fans, the 2 key ones we should concentrate on is the players ( are they good enough)
    then the manager, is he getting the best out what he has availible to him at that moment,,

    in my opinion, the manager does not get the best out of the players he has had up until now,, and now for the next 8 games he has excuses as his better players are out

    i must admit if the rumours was true and he did arrive at the toon i would definatly not be disapointed and even if he turned out not to be so good i would hold my hands up as what i’ve seen of him playing he looks awsome good def/pass and shots by the looks of him
