Toulouse Reports Moussa Sissoko Signs For Newcastle


There is breaking news on the Toulouse web-site that says Newcastle United have signed Moussa Sissoko today.

Moussa Sissoko -Toulouse_2741899

Moussa Sissoko – has signed for Newcastle

Here is what has only just been posted on the Toulouse web-site with translation from Google and myself:

“Moussa Sissoko did not terminate his contract Toulouse Football Club but he agreed with the Newcastle United Football Club for a definitive transfer that takes effect today. His career will therefore evolve in England in the English Premier League championship.”

“Moussa Sissoko joined the Toulouse Football Club where he played in most of the categories of youth training center in Toulouse.”  “He made his official debut with the professional team of  Touolouse during the 2007-08 season, when he came on against Valenciennes (3 August 2007), and he ten played in matches against Lyon and Liverpool, in the preliminary round of the Champions League.”

“Moussa is a powerful  player who scored his first goal official on 1 September 2007 at the Stadium against AJ Auxerre (2-0). He played 30 games in Ligue 1 in his first season (plus four European Cup).”  In the second season, Moussa was called up by Erick Mombaerts  for the French Youth side (September 2008).”

“Moussa then played more than 35 games per season on average as a starter with Toulouse,  his 2009-10 season remains the most prolific with seven goals scored. It is also at this time that he honors his first cap for France in Guingamp (10 October 2009). ”

“Raymond Domenech, then coach, brough Sissoko on during the match  – France-Faroe Islands – in the qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup, and he was called up again by Didier Deschamps  with 2012 teammate Etienne Capua, and he has six caps in the Blue jersey when leaving the Touolouse today.”

“All the club wishes him continued success in his career.”

To sign now for Newcastle, Moussa has given up the signing bonus he would have received if he had joined the club as a free agent in the summer – and these are the types of players we want at Newcastle.

This is a fantastic signing by Newcastle United. 😀

And it’s good that the problems between the player and his club Toulouse have been sorted out – and we expect Toulouse to be very pleased with the deal – and around €2.5M they will have received from Newcastle for their top player.

All’s well that ends well – and this has all ended very well indeed for Newcastle United.

Howay The Lads!!

    Great signing. Statement said his contract was terminated… what does that mean.
    Also where’s haidara. He must be having the worlds longest medical or we cant agree personal terms. Dunno why that would happen – he cant want that much

    Well Remy QPR’s little project looks much better than ours right now.

    Although I’m sure signing the Korean defender Suk Young (enter text here) is much better than Mbiwa.

    Almost literally can’t believe this, what an amazing signing! We’ve definitely got one of the best midfields in the league with him, Cabaye and Tiote/Anita. Buzzing 😀

    Smells like we are going to cash in on Tiote in July. Sad to see him leave, but he can be a liability. Definite profit when we sell.

    @Paps

    I saw on the GFNFrance Twitter the other day stating that Haidara had some “loose ends” what ever that means that needed sorting out before he became official and it was always going to take longer than Mbiwa….I dont think it will be too long now.

    Lads did Pardew have his press conference today or has it already happened? If it has happened, any big news from it?

    Maybe promises about Haidara’s playing time is the stumbling block

    Maybe we aren’t willing to guarantee him playing time or something

    Paps, I think it’s trying to say that he did not terminate his contract with Tolouse (did not buy it out) but that an agreement was reached between the clubs for his transfer.

    Personally I think the Hadaira issues are belonging to something in his medical. Those things are very intricate.

    If it was financial/game time/contract that wouldn’t be done at the training ground.

    Someone said it was perhaps down to giving him equal exposure?

    Hope this is true and hope to hear some more news on this soon to confirm it. But what a signing if so and saying this is a bargain is an understatement, great player and hopefully great addition.

    Do many others feel if we wernt in this slump we wouldnt of done all this business?? and if thats true would we all agree we are kinda happy we have went through this slump??

    Either way things are looking up for us and cant wait for the Villa game. HWTL

    Can someone explain the reasoning behind the claims that as Ashley is busy buying players now that Pardew must be off in the summer?

    Surely it’s a case of “IF” Pardew doesn’t get them playing well, not that it’s a forgone conclusion? Pretty sure these are the type of players Pardew was expecting in the summer that never turned up, Ashley & Llambias or whichever combination (inc Pardew) you desire to use decided we’d be okay to January and not he’s trying to put it right?

    Why insist on making it more complicated?

    A striker in now and this has been an unbelivable window.. Demba who? If we just got guidetti or welbeck on loan till the summer it would hold us over. Or move for Charlie Austin, Wilfred Bony or Ricky Van Wolfswinkel.. Then in the summer Colo can go on, bring in okore for £4m and douglas for free. Sulejamani from ajax for free.. Let willo, jonas, perch, simmo, oberton all go 😀 Use the money raised for future stars. Ohh and after Mbiwa Sissoko is the next best signing. What a player..

    Schitt!

    I’m really beginning to feel paranoid now what with those blonde and brunette Rebecca bints stalking me and large as life, there’s something above the previous article saying that I’ve been unfriended by 3 people!

    It gets worse by the minute!!!!
