French Reports That Sissoko A Done Deal At €2.5M


le10Sports is reporting that Newcastle have signed Moussa Sissoko to a permanent deal at Newcastle for €2.5M, which is about £2M.

Moussa Sissoko – a done deal?

Here’s the translation of the le10 report:

As we revealed earlier this week, Moussa Sissoko has reached an agreement with the English club Newcastle. And according to our information, the player will join the Magpies this winter.

The two clubs have reached an agreement to €2.5 million for the transfer of the player.” Dismissed by the professional group president Olivier Sadran, Moussa Sissoko had to make some serious efforts in order to resolve the situation this winter.”

He will leave Toulouse now and not next June when his contract with TFC should end, the player has in effect agreed to forgo his signing bonus.” Moussa Sissoko will commit to a five and a half years.”

This is breaking news – but great news for Newcastle United – and we would think this report is very close to the truth.

Moussa will be another great signing for the club.

    I am a bit worried about dressing room harmony but when i think about it Newcastle do a lot of research on players these days on personality you know checking up that they dont like to party and are family men and religious men
    and I believe listening to interviews that Debuchy, Mbiwa and Gouffran will give their all in a Toon shirt and sound like good guys

    The reason there might be disharmony but that would because we would be getting French players with great technique and work ethic who look after themselves and they have to deal with these guys :

    Ranger 1st class idiot and not good enough
    Ameobi bros Lazy and not good enough
    Simpson not good enough and cheated on his missus
    Willo not good enough but model pro
    Perch same as Willo
    Taylor Always injured
    Gosling Not Good enough always injured

    It’s like when you were younger and you would play football and the worst players would be last picked and they would always be the ones that made a mistake and the team would rage at them this is what its like for us

    Could include Jonas in that list as well our better players this season have been French speaking and Anita

    He is the player we are missing from midfield….genuine box to box driving player, solid in the tackle, offers enough going forward too.

    Things are looking up…looking at 7 points from our next 3 games.

    i think the main problem with llamarse is he came from the casino business and they all look at their customers as idiots as they think only mugs gamble in casinos.

    he is small time and is now trying to deal with big chairmen who are big time charlies who won’t be bullied like the people he has dealt with in the past throughout his career.

    We are no longer black and white 🙁

    We are now known as le blues 🙁

    Great players though

    And if I’m honest, does it matter if they where all French , we could have a team with players from all over Europe

    England has itself to blame for high player salary and player price,

    All these deals for new players, this january has been the transfer window equivalent of porn!

    Hi, my pen has slipped. There’s ink all over the contract. Ooo, yeah, I’m gonna play for your club, babeh, I’m gonna play hard, until you win all over the place.

    JB….Let’s think about that for a second as there can’t be too many places you could hide Ashley.

    Bills….I have faith, however, for me, this summer will be the time where we can really judge where we’re going. It’s looking good though.

    Bills

    Can’t argue that what we saw in the summer could be seen as lack of ambition. It might not have been, it could have just been complacency.

    But this is the first of two tests for Ashley.

    1. correct the wrongs from the summer…he has now done that comfortably with these signings.

    2. show he has learned and still bring in 2-3 first team players (either straight into the team or pushing for a place, not kids for development squad) in the summer to keep us going forward as you always need to refresh the squad.

    He has done all he can so far to right the wrongs though so credit to him.

    I’m still sticking with my theory that Ashley handed his details to one of those phone calls claiming he has won the nigerian lottery and for only £100 the monies will be all his.

    And now somebody is using his card details to buy our players haha.

    another CB so willo can be moved out and we’d have 4.

    a striker and a genuine winger

    I hope this is true like! Just the perfect player to go alongside wor yohan. Big powerhouse is what we need. No offence to Anita and tiote but if this guy comes they must get used to warming that bench! Buzzing like!!!!!

    Would we have made all these great signings if we had beaten Reading last weekend??? Every cloud …… as they say.
    Did Pardew want us to fall apart?
    Am I giving him to much credit ha ha.

    I am more than happy to hold my hands up and admit that Ashley has more than surprised me during this window. I thought that Debuchy would be the only new face this month and that Ashley would continue to gamble with our future.

    Krul

    Dbchy
    Colo
    Mbiwa
    Santon

    Sisk
    Cabs
    Anita

    Marv
    Cisse
    Goofy

    When hba comes back, we have him in place of marv or goofy, which ads to the pace on the bench.

    I’d like gary hooper but think he might be too expensive.

    I’d take a look at tom ince as a winger as well as matt phillips.

    Jordan rhodes has to be worth looking into, having another very good season.

    Thats for english players…..there are many more options abroad.

    Houiller and malbranque might be haters, but they do have a potential point….It could be a problem…we will have to give it time and wait to find out…but with good characters and professional outlook of players such as cabaye, Yanga-Mbiwa and Sissoko, the others will be kept on their toes
