We may hear from Newcastle players soon about what they think of Alan Pardew leaving the club, although they will probably not be allowed to talk about it until Newcastle bring in a replacement for Alan – very soon we hope.
Moussa Sissoko – happy at Newcastle
There are rumors that Mike Ashley may sell Moussa Sissoko next month if somebody comes in with a £16M bid for him.
In fact since that’s the figure Mike seems to want for the Frenchman – we will sell Moussa if a club comes in with that offer next month.
That’s unless Moussa will be like Cheick Tiote almost four years ago, when the Ivorian made it clear he wanted to stay on Tyneside and rejected a move to Chelsea, after he had only been at the club for six months.
This is what Moussa has said in the Sun today:
“I said all along I was happy here at Newcastle.” “I will be here and trying to do my best for this club in 2015.” “I have played in different positions and on Sunday against Everton I was asked to play on the right side.”
“I have played in the No 10 spot as well.” “The coach considers me an important part of the group.” “I have sometimes been handed the captain’s armband and I am very happy with my role here.”
“I am very happy with my role here”
Wonder if he’ll be as happy after Alan leaves Newcastle – probably today.
Pardew is apparently set to sign a £2.5M/year (£1.5M base plus bonuses) four-year deal at Selhurst Park, and it’s hard to know just how Crystal Palace can afford those wages for a manager.
But we suppose it’s worth it if Alan can keep them in the Premier League.
