As we said earlier this morning we need some good news these days, after Newcastle have gone into a terrible slump of results in the Premier League. And it seems like French newspaper L’Equipe is trying to oblige Newcastle fans (that’s so nice of them), because they are reporting today that Moussa Sissoko is on his way to Newcastle in January, and we wouldn’t be too surprised if that turns out to be the case.
Moussa Sissoko – please can I join Newcastle
We hope it’s the case- and it may even be that Newcastle have already done the deal with Toulouse for the French international box to box midfielder, who has often been compared to the great Patrick Vieira.
And it could also explain why Alan Pardew appears to be so confident that Newcastle will have a stronger squad come February.
Yohan Cabaye is out until February, although there was some good news this morning that he could be back in mid-January, as could Steven Taylor, but we need another creative central midfielder in our ranks as soon as possible - there’s no doubt about that.
Sissoko is 23, and his contract at Toulouse runs out in the summer, so he would be available for a reasonably small fee in January, although some other big clubs are also said to be interested.
We have to hope this news is true, because we need to pull out of the relegation zone as soon as possible and start heading up that league table.
However, our game on Saturday is at home to Manchester City, and 70% of our readers think we will lose that game – so things could get a little worse before they start to get better.
Howay the Lads!!
