Three of Moussa Sissoko’s French International colleagues Yohan Cabaye, Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy have left Newcastle this summer, and with Moussa stating he would like to play Champions League, it was feared Moussa may also want to leave Newcastle.

But Moussa has told the press that he is happy at Newcastle:
“I would like to play in the Champions League, but I feel very happy at Newcastle.” “There was nothing concrete offered to me this summer.”
Moussa has been an automatic first choice of manager Alan Pardew at Newcastle since he joined us from Toulouse in January of last year, and he has so far played 60 times for Newcastle with 6 goals,
Since joining Newcastle, Moussa has also been included regularly in the full French squad under manager Didier Deschamps, and he now has 21 caps with one goal for France, and he had a good World Cup in Brazil.
It’s interesting to know hat would have happened if a top club had come in for him in the summer – certainly Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy wanted to immediately leave Newcastle for PSG and Arsenal respectively.
Wonder if that would have happened with Moussa?
