QPR To Hijack Newcastle’s Move For Moussa Sissoko


News today that both Newcastle and QPR are going head to head again, this time for French International Moussa Sissoko, and that’s according to French daily L’Equipe, and if money has anything to do with it – Newcastle will again miss out to the London club – who are willing to pay huge wages to players and good money to agents, to get players to join them.

Moussa Sissoko – QPR to hijack the deal – again

That’s what happend with Loic Remy when he was offered a massive £85K/week to join them, and after speaking with the owner Tony Fernandez, he signed on at QPR and scored for them on his debut, in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at West Ham.

The Toulouse midfielder is set to leave his club this week with the fee being around £3.5M for a player who has just six months left on his contract at the French club.

L’Equipe is reporting  that Sissoko is keen on a move to Newcastle, where the Tyneside club already have a large contingent of good French players, and he could settle in very quickly, but news today that his agents will meet with the London club.

If it’s like the Remy deal his agents will be told there’s big money in it for them, and they will also offer Moussa big wages to join QPR’s relegation battle, and they offer to put a release clause in his contract, so that if they end up being relegated in May – he can leave for a stated transfer fee.

Moussa Sissoko is still only 22, and he is one of the best defensive midfielders in France, and he can also play as an attacking midfielder, and has been capped five times by France.

If QPR beat out Newcastle again, then it could have some impact on the relegation race if QPR keep beating us to our top targets in January – this is not good.

    It’s a case of who ever Carr watches we will just move in and offer more money, I bet West ham didn’t even look at Maiga just thought if he is good enough for Carr then we shall take him…same case here.

    It’s only a hijacking if QPR nabs him when we almost have him.
    It’s a level playing field atm and we’re having talks with him later this week.
    It is said though that Sissoko prefers Newcastle over QPR.
    Fingers crossed!

    How can they be ‘Hi-jacking’ a deal when they are speaking to the player before we do. If it is because we scouted him before them, then we are hi-jacking him from lots of clubs who looked at him before us.

    From what I’ve read, he wants to come to us, but his agents want the best deal. Fair enough I say, at least this way we will know what QPR offer him, and it gives the board a chance to show that transfer policy isn’t rigid and they are willing to negotiate. Let’s wait and see what develops before getting too wound up.

    Let’s not forget, we nicked Cisse from Sunderland after they thought he was on his way to them last January.

    Not quite sure what the fuss is all about. It’s not our divine right to get any player.

    Yes we play in front of a 50,000 strong crowd with great away support and a respectable history, a decent record in the prem league, only not featured on year but we are still a standard english team.

    Players will go where they think is best, where they will get game time, a good wage and a nice area to live in.

    the balance on those 3 things is different for each player, some players go russia which isn’t the best place to live but you get huge wages.

    Others take wage cuts to stay in and around the area they live and enjoy being in.

    Neither is right or wrong, just everybody has different motives.

    Hopefully he will choose us as we need a player like him and he could really help us.

    torq — from previous

    Had a little chat yesterday, they have told me even in their side of the club (office not training ground) that there is a negativity seeping around the place, people just feel down but they have stressed that the club are working very hard to get players in and that pardew has been around a lot more than usual to try and push things through…he is demanding players, might not say it in public but behind the scenes he is banging doors..well not literally but you get my drift.

    They expected to announce remy last week along with haidaira but things have been held up and obviously remy went elsewhere.

    Not sure what will happen but there’s a lot going on and our business is far from done. Expect another 3 if not 4 before the end of jan, and 2 before villa.

    Ashley needs to get these players in his Helicopter up to Newcastle.

    Bringing them to London and leaving them there isn’t clever.

    But then it’s Dastardly and Mutley … what can we expect.
    Helicopters are only for players going out.

    Toulouse want him out now, they need the money. The player is relaxed and would prefer a summer move. As would his agents, for obvious reasons. The club are desperate for him to go now but for him to leave, the £3 million fee would be nearly doubled to get him to agree. The player wants to come here in the Summer, with a clause to release him from the obligation if we are relegated before then. Just some info I heard last week from one of our current players representatives.

    iggy….I’m no fan of the man, but he had been after him when at Spurs, so not sure it’s as simple as just stealing Carr’s recommendations.

    These players have just been sitting in France since Jan 1st.

    Ed must have done 100 articles on Sissoko being a target over the last two years.

    Llambias isn’t very good at his job is he? Too tight and too horrible.

    naptoon….I would imagine Ryder is reporting exactly what Pardew wants, whether the board will do it however is another story.

    What did make me chuckle is the one comment on the page:

    “what the hell is going on buy a player then loan him out jesus the looneys are running this club.”

    Talk about concentrating on the negativity. Out of that whole article this person only picks up that one point. What the hell is going on indeed.

    Surely QPR wont hijack all our targets, if we have any. Newcastle always struggle with signings threw penny pinching thats why its such a ordeal to get some one in. When they are in the championship they will be saying we made a mistake.

    Cheers sage. 3-4 players in is really what is needed. But you neve know with this club.

    Watching the Bastia game last night – clearly obvious that Yann M’Villa isn’t wanted at the club. Started on the bench and failed to impress when he came on. Strolled around the pitch and his only real input into the game was giving away a penalty after being brought on.

    I don’t know where he will end up – but I just hope it’s not at QPR.

    Don’t get me rong there’s some great players in France but why do all of our targets seem to come from there. Surely there’s other places. All comes down to Ash saving his cash on wages I suppose.
