Report Newcastle Willing To Sell Top Midfielder This Summer

11:15 am, Thursday, June 18th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 182 Comments

The Express are reporting that Newcastle will listen to offers for 25 year-old French International Moussa Sissoko this summer, but why would we sell one of our best players and the fee mentioned – £17M – is not exactly an Andy Carrollesque type bid.

moussa sissoko outjumps 2 west ham players

Moussa Sissoko scores vital first goal against West Ham

Newcastle may find it hard to get offers near that figure, because Moussa was hardly outstanding in the second half of last season.

But come to think of it, nobody else was in the Newcastle side under the woeful coaching and man-management of John Carver, who was simply way out of his depth.

That’s one reason it may be important for new head coach Steve McClaren to take a look at every Newcastle player, before any decisions are made on who can leave this summer.

Moussa has played very well in patches for Newcastle,  and we think that McClaren can get the very best out of him.

However, we would also hope that Moussa stops putting himself up for sale in the interviews he gives – when he keeps mentioning he would love to play for a Champions League club.

Based on his performance this year for Newcastle, he’s not good enough to play for a top club.

Liverpool are said to be interested in Moussa, but we have a hard time believing Newcastle would be willing to let him go this summer.

Moussa Sissoko has scored 11 goals in 94 appearances for Newcastle since joining us from Toulouse in January, 2013.

When in form Moussa Sissoko can be a powerhouse for the team, and we think his best days are still ahead of him – at Newcastle.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    BandB…It’s something we touched on recently. Logic (which can be a minefield with it comes to NUFC I admit) would indicate that this summer was always going to be a summer of re-building.

    Even before Ashleys interview, it was always going to be tough to gauge what was a sign of necessity or ambition.

    My thougts are, as you have been saying, the club need to show us their hand. My guess is there will be some encouraging signs by the time this window is done.

    As always, it’s what comes next. Will they build on it?

    A lot is said about the days of OV. Yes it went ott, however, it was based on genuine belief as we were well positioned to build from there.

  • 4 richyg01 // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:23 AM

    Its sounding more and more like McClaren has to sell before he can buy, otherwise, why are we not snapping players up before other clubs get in there first or their price rises!

    HOWAY, we were meant to know the coaching staff on Monday, its now Thursday and still no word.

    Gonna be a LONG summer this one.

  • 5 SuperShearer // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:25 AM

    So having not brought in anyone our smart new “Board” are now looking to sell one of our best players? You can’t make this stuff up. I said it when it happened but until Ashely puts his money where is mouth is on the promises he’s made us NO ONE should renew their season tickets. Wait till the last minute or better still go to the games you fancy and sack-off the rest of this clown outfit we’re now lumbered with.

  • 6 richyg01 // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:26 AM

    Swansea have ANOTHER player in for a medical.

    Good on them I say, we need to be more like them.

    *Jesus, that is the level we have reached, where we are looking up to Swansea (no disrespect to them)

  • 7 Average_Contents // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:26 AM

    Haha ed. You crack me up.

    Do you seriously think shteve’s got a say and he’d be allowed to assess who leaves? If his valuation were to ever be met the club wouldn’t give a toss about what shteve thinks and he’d be sold. Most probably without a replacement because it wasn’t financially viable at the time.

    If shteve ever came out with similar guff we’d know without a shadow of a doubt he’s another puppet.

    I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt at the moment (being a yes man) until such time he does come out with it.

    Although we had a taster at his coronation didn’t we.

    Let the dust settle.

  • 9 Munster Mag // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:26 AM

    Problem with this player is that its very difficult to get the most out of him because he doesnt suit one role well. He cant tackle, so not good defensive midfield. He cant pass particularly well either. He can run a lot but also gives the ball away a lot. And his attitude stinks at times. I would consider decent bids for him but its laughable that he wants to play in the champions league. He just isnt at that level. Obviously his agent may say otherwise…

  • 10 Munster Mag // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:29 AM

    Average, a fair question at this point is: ” How is McClaren assessing the players ” ? Carver is gone, and Shteve cant watch the players so …???

  • 11 Munster Mag // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:30 AM

    I’ll bet watching dvds of last seasons games must be fun. Welcome to NUFC steve!!

  • 12 Munster Mag // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:31 AM

    Swansea are an excellent club. I read somewhere that they have two players lined up for every poition in the transfer market if needed, and have a succession plan always for managers. Monk was signposted miles out.

  • 15 BandB // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:33 AM

    There was a time that if one suggested we might sell our better players for less than “silly money” it drew a certain amount of fire.

    However, Charnley explained the club has a value in mind for every player and will sell if the price is acceptable, regardless.
    So what is being reported as shocking here by Ed is just stated club policy in action.

    If we sell, he will be replaced. Though manager may have to patient and not expect a like-for-like replacement. Which was also spelled out by Charnley quite clearly.

    That is why I hope the club will announce soon that this policy has been scrapped. It might sell some season tickets.

    give Sissoko one more year under S. McClaren and we will see what he can achieve…but we must buy first, CB,creative midfielder and Striker must by priority…

  • 19 optimistic prime // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:39 AM

    BandB

    I read somewhere that even if you don’t renew your st if it hasn’t been sold for 3months after start of season you can still claim your seat if you wish to pay.

    If that’s the case and others have read the same IMO a lot of people will wait until end of window to see what shape were in.

    Personally I beleive not one fan owes the club anything, other way round.
    They should be going all out to prove they’ve changed tact, not expecting people to beleive their empty words.

  • 20 Jib // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:39 AM

    The French press are reporting that with loan fee and salary Cabaye would cost £7million
    Take the £17 for Sissoko
    Pay £7million for Cabaye for a season and buy Will Hughes for £10million.
    Jobs a good ‘un

  • 21 SuperShearer // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:42 AM

    The club need to make some moves and fast. They’ve proved time and time again that playing this ridiculous waiting game never works. If you want a player then make it happen. Otherwise we end up with garbage and all this crap about “the line” that we couldn’t get someone over.

  • 22 richyg01 // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:42 AM

    Whats this BS meant to mean:

    “Newcastle are hoping their pursuit of Watford’s Troy Deeney could convince QPR to drop their asking price for Charlie Austin.”

    Why would us trying to sign another player make Austin’s price fall!? Makes no sense!

  • 23 SuperShearer // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:44 AM

    Richy – it’s a typical Ashely tactic. It’s BS, the theory being if it looks like you’re going after other targets a selling club will go “okay, let’s lower our price for you” – that’s not the way the world works.

  • 24 nightfa11 // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:45 AM

    fine by me..trade him for cabaye & buy hughes..

  • 25 Average_Contents // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:45 AM

    Munster

    Did I say right this minute? They could sell him the last day of the window after shteve’s seen him or anybody else in action for that matter. It was in reply to ed’s ambitious opinion that he’d have a say. He wouldn’t. As I said, if the valuation is met he’d be gone regardless of what shteve wanted.

  • 26 Lilongwe Geordie // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:46 AM

    The club has a full roster of players over the age of 22 currently that would all need to be registered this season if they are to be used in the Premier league. Whilst I would prefer to see us buy first, that will fly against the perceived wisdom in the corridors of power.

    Why would they want more players then can be used? Will anyone come in for people like Rivi, Anita, Goofy, Colo, Willo, Saylor, Vuckic, Marveaux, Bigi, Ferguson etc. Some could possibly go out on loan, but the club will not be willing to have a large number of players who aren’t registered but are still at the club. Of course, the other option is to tear up some contracts and pay them off.

    That is another reason why any reasonable bid for a player will be considered in my opinion, as we only have a handful of relatively saleable assets – Cisse, Sissoko, Perez, Janmaat maybe at a push Tiote.

  • 27 BandB // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:47 AM

    OP

    That seems a logical route for waverers to follow, rather than committing now.
    We need to present them with a list of reasonable expectations and make it clear that we won’t just sign up anyway if they serve up something less than that.
    People almost fainted with relief that we got the unwanted McClaren because they feared getting Carver.
    As you said yourself….”fool me once shame on you…fool me for eight years…shoot me.”

  • 28 Average_Contents // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:48 AM

    Oh and it wasn’t a dig at shteve, more the club for letting him have no say or if he did not being arsed about it in the slightest. Money is king. Not shteve.

    Although if he came out and defended a player leaving with no replacement bought as has happened with previous managers then he’d be another puppet. As this hasn’t happened yet I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

  • 31 Lilongwe Geordie // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:52 AM

    Wouldn’t bother with the Cabaye loan, but if we sold Sissoko and got Hughes into understudy for De Jong whilst also adding £7million to the centre forward/centre half fund I think it would be a good bit of business. Another bonus would be that Hughes wouldn’t need registering for the Premier league as he is under 21.

  • 32 expatmag // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:54 AM

    I posted something similar a few threads back.

  • 33 Lilongwe Geordie // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:57 AM

    BandB,
    Very true. The amount of money wasted by the club in an attempt to be run at low cost is crazy. Most of those players aren’t on tiny wages, most will be between £30 and 50k a week and yet they offer very little now, some never have in their time here.

  • 34 optimistic prime // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:01 PM

    Lg

    Anyway we could get rid of Sissoko would be good IMO.

    BandB

    I rate Mclaren as a coach, def wouldn’t be my first choice but best we can expect under fatty.
    I’m not sure if I’m relieved or underwhelmed at his appointment, until the window closes I’ll hold off losing my mind either way. Well I’ll try at least.

  • 35 Jib // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:01 PM

    A fascinating resource for real NUFC fans (Mr Tuff you go and play in the sandpit) is NUFC.com Rumours section , especially last summers months of June , July and August.
    One forgets how wacky some of the rumours were !!!!
    The only 2 that were correctly predicted (late in the day) by the Chronic were Cabella and SdJong.
    Daryl Janmaat was only forecast in the Italian press.

  • 36 mickalfas // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:02 PM

    We have a squad which 50%,at least, of them won’t get a game ,have absolutely no sell value ,and nobody wants them
    Fantastic strategy fatty !!

  • 37 JackButler // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:04 PM

    If Sissoko believes he deserves to be playing for a Champions League side (he simply does not) then let him go, but if this is just another ploy for Ashley to recoup some money it will go to show that talk is cheap

  • 39 Lindisfarne // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:09 PM

    Lilongwe Geordie

    Perceived wisdom says you don’t sell until there is a ready made replacement in situ. However the club are more likely to believe having a replacement lowers the selling price.

  • 40 richyg01 // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:09 PM

    Aparently we are now talking to Wolfsburg to try and agree a fee for Bas Dost.

    Why would Liverpool buy Sissoko if they could have Cabaye? I know which player I prefer.

  • 43 JackButler // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:12 PM

    It would be very interesting to know how the season ticket sales are going as the deadline is fast approaching and with only a head coach (with no staff), I have a feeling that fans will be holding onto their cash for a little while yet

  • 44 Munster Mag // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:13 PM

    Average, I think our postings crossed. Either way, its looking worrying. I am not overly concerned re Sissoko but would far prefer to keep him. Its all panning out that Shteve has been sold a pup and is beginning to play the obedient dog. I loved his comment on day 1 …”this looks like a club that stick together ” ….yeah right !!!

    WWSBRD,
    That is a fair point, I’m hoping he will have a better season in terms of fitness. It is only the last 2 years, since his initial punctured lung that has seen SDJ have injury problems. Prior to that he didn’t have these issues. Hopefully the operation and summer/pre season will help him make a full recovery and back to his old self.

    BandB…I’ve been wondering what the reasoning could be this summer. They can’t use the we don’t have enough money line, unless they’re going to argue that they’re going for quantity, not just quality.

    My guess is that it’ll be the already prepped “pound for pound” reasoning, as in the better, higher priced players, simply don’t represent good value for money.

    The stats vs cost simply wont add up.

  • 59 BandB // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:29 PM

    Perhaps they believe that they had a squad to challenge for their targets assembled last summer, and that it only failed because the “excellent” Pardew left.

    Maybe McClaren is the horse bolted to the cart, and the money spent sacking Carver and Stone “the investment’?

    So it will be McClaren who gets the “pound for pound value”…out of the current players, rather than transfers.

    Transfers, meanwhile, will continue at the “one or two brought in” rate envisaged by Charnley?

    I still think we’ll buy around six, rather like last year, a bit of a mix.
    But that the overall number on the books will still end up fewer.

    Moving bodies out may well be taking up quiet a lot of their time at present, and they may have people lined up for when that happens.

    Cabaye will be 30 this coming season ( Jan ), and Liverpool will only offer one year contracts to players over 30 ( same s Arsenal / Man City etc) – Liverpool also have Henderson who they bizarrely think is decent, but Sissoko will give them another option so quite easy to see why they would want him

    Cabaye far more likely to go to West Ham or Palace to be close to his mate andthey will offer him a 3 year contract on decent wedge ( something we won’t)

  • 82 check the toastie // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:52 PM

    Reckon we will start the new season with Collocini and Williamson as Centre halves.
    Sissoko is a superb player if used properly down the right hand side, why would we want to sell him and keep Obertan, Sammi, Cabella etc on the books, simple to make money and weaken the team.

    Utter shite.

  • 84 Lindisfarne // Jun 18, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    So obvious that the Club are not actually going to go through with the £10M deal for Deeney, who is untried in the PL, when an extra £5M will do the job of securing one of last seasons highest scoring British players.

    Yet again gambling on missing a target by trying dirty tricks to cut down the price, that is already very realistic. A more positive way of doing the deal would be to secure the remainder of the fee (and more) against achieving certain successes; or tie in regular out of season friendlies at all age groups for a number of years; or a loan arrangement for an academy player.

    The problem is QPR want the money straight up in preparation for any fines that are heading their way. The £15M fee for Charlie Austin they see as being a discount from the £25M they would like to charge if they were still in the PL.

    BandB…It’s something we touched on recently. Logic (which can be a minefield with it comes to NUFC I admit) would indicate that this summer was always going to be a summer of re-building.

    Even before Ashleys interview, it was always going to be tough to gauge what was a sign of necessity or ambition.

    My thougts are, as you have been saying, the club need to show us their hand. My guess is there will be some encouraging signs by the time this window is done.

    As always, it’s what comes next. Will they build on it?

    A lot is said about the days of OV. Yes it went ott, however, it was based on genuine belief as we were well positioned to build from there.

    Its sounding more and more like McClaren has to sell before he can buy, otherwise, why are we not snapping players up before other clubs get in there first or their price rises!

    HOWAY, we were meant to know the coaching staff on Monday, its now Thursday and still no word.

    Gonna be a LONG summer this one.

    4 SuperShearer // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:25 AM

    So having not brought in anyone our smart new “Board” are now looking to sell one of our best players? You can’t make this stuff up. I said it when it happened but until Ashely puts his money where is mouth is on the promises he’s made us NO ONE should renew their season tickets. Wait till the last minute or better still go to the games you fancy and sack-off the rest of this clown outfit we’re now lumbered with.

    Swansea have ANOTHER player in for a medical.

    Good on them I say, we need to be more like them.

    *Jesus, that is the level we have reached, where we are looking up to Swansea (no disrespect to them)

    6 Average_Contents // Jun 18, 2015 at 11:26 AM

    Haha ed. You crack me up.

    Do you seriously think shteve’s got a say and he’d be allowed to assess who leaves? If his valuation were to ever be met the club wouldn’t give a toss about what shteve thinks and he’d be sold. Most probably without a replacement because it wasn’t financially viable at the time.

    If shteve ever came out with similar guff we’d know without a shadow of a doubt he’s another puppet.

    I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt at the moment (being a yes man) until such time he does come out with it.

    Although we had a taster at his coronation didn’t we.

    Let the dust settle.

    Problem with this player is that its very difficult to get the most out of him because he doesnt suit one role well. He cant tackle, so not good defensive midfield. He cant pass particularly well either. He can run a lot but also gives the ball away a lot. And his attitude stinks at times. I would consider decent bids for him but its laughable that he wants to play in the champions league. He just isnt at that level. Obviously his agent may say otherwise…

    Fully agree with this he does not have the skills to play in the middle of the park and is much better out wide as there is more space for him to run into. He has made it clear he does not really like playing wide right and i would take another out and out winger such a Nathan Redmond over him all day long. 17M will be great business but we do need that central creative midfielder who can ping passes about and hit some long range shots – Cabaye would be great and maybe De Jong can fill this position.

    I would take £12m for Moussa.

    I just dont rate him.

    He is not comfortable on the abll and relies on his strength to beat a man rather than skill.

    2 easy passes on for him against West Ham but he didnt get his head up and look.

    He is also not a team player. When he is on form he is winning games single handedly but most of the time he is holding the team back.

    I want to see us play as a unit not relying on 1 or 2 which we have for years now. I think if you shipped him out, Mcclaren could replace with players that would be better for the whole team.

    BIG IF at this club though

    It’s not a case of sell to balance the books as that would allow for buying before selling thus getting targets in before they go to Swansea or somewhere.

    Has Charnley the balls to take that approach? I doubt it very much and no doubt we’ll see another Santon, Mbiwa, Carroll sort of episode when it’s too late to get a replacement over the line!

    From “Think like a Freak” “Secrets of the Rogue Economist”

    Find out what people “really” care about, not what they say they care about.

    Never, ever think that people will do something just because it is the “right” thing to do.

    Know that some people will do everything they can to game the system, finding ways to win that you never could have imagined. If only to keep yourself sane, try to applaud their ingenuity rather than curse their greed.

  • 116 Keith in France // Jun 18, 2015 at 1:58 PM

    Just read this on the NUFC website.

    Steve McClaren insists his arrival is a “fresh start” and a “new beginning” for Newcastle United, after completing a first week as the Magpies’ new head coach.

    Since being unveiled eight days ago, McClaren has spent the majority of his time at United’s Benton-based Training Centre, getting to grips with the job in hand a fortnight before his squad are due to report back for pre-season training.

    And the 54-year-old told nufc.co.uk: “It has been a great week, a productive week and everything is very positive.

    “It’s been a week of getting to know people, getting to know the structure and getting to know the staff.

    “I’ve been sat down with Graham (Carr), Lee (Charnley) and Bob (Moncur), going through what the plans are, what the Club has been doing, the current squad, targets and assessing things.

    “We have to build some momentum and then keep that going, and that is what we are trying to do. Behind the scenes we are working very, very hard to make sure we are ready for the new season.”

    McClaren has been tasked with guiding Newcastle back into the upper reaches of the Barclays Premier League table, while challenging for success in one of the cup competitions.

    And after a disappointing term last season, in which the Magpies only avoided relegation on the final day, he has already begun to make his mark.

    “In a small way, yes, I’m starting to put my stamp on things,” continued the former England, FC Twente and Wolfsburg supremo.

    “Without going into too much detail, it’s really been about assessing what has been happening at the Club and how we can progress and move things forward.

    “I want to send a very clear message to the staff and players that this is a fresh start for everybody, and that we have to all pull together to have an exciting season.

    “It’s a new beginning for Newcastle United and it’s a nice time to assess things before the players return for pre-season training and the hard work begins.

    “I can’t wait for the start of July. That is what the job is all about – having the players around, getting out on the training pitch and getting down to work, preparing for the new season.”

Instead of arguing his point when it became obvious that Mikey wasn’t our best ever owner he disappeared, only to return after a sigining or rare unbeaten run. You expect us to put the bunting out for him.

    WRONG. I ‘disappeared’ because I had a stroke and three months after that my wife was diagnosed with cancer. Posting on here wasn’t one of my priorities.

    I knew the likes of you and others would give me stick when I came back on months later, which you did, even though I posted at that time why I had stopped posting.

    You, and others, can fcuk right off.

    I’ll post when I want, about anything I want, and I couldn’t give a flying to$$ about any snide remarks.

    Is that perfectly clear?

    That is why although it may be a release, even machismo to abuse fellow bloggers, the best practice would be to actually imagine there is an actual human being standing in front of you when you get into a conversation/disagreement. State what you think, defend it, that’s all. Have an argument, a laugh.

    My heart didn’t exactly start racing, more like skipped a beat as I got the shivers.

    See, there’s a positive somewhere there! We got the Mackems’… second choice.

    Anyways, it pisses me off when Liv, Spurs. United, Chelsea etc. fans inadvertently and condescendingly talk of ‘you’ll be ok’.

    Come on! Let’s put some fear into them.

    Welsh………. Jails theory that Welshies Sheep is an imposter known as Iantoon.

    Can you please confirm once and for all
    ,are you the Sheep or the sheep shagger.

    It’s very confusing on here now with people turning up out of the blue making very aggressive comments.

    Seems to be following a pattern. Detective JFA will need to be at his sharpest.

    I suppose 2nd choice is better than 3rd 4th or 5th choice..,.

    Every silver cloud

    We need somebody like albert Luque. As Mr Souness said “He will put his hand in the fire for you.” Thats why he got the sack I suppose. Why was Sir Bobby sacked when we were 5th!!!!!!!!!!!

    Friends from other teams have been telling me, ‘good deal that Steve, no surprises he’ll keep you safely mid-table’.

    Was wondering if this has happened to you.

    Yes.

    I can confirm that I’m not a sheep or a sheep shagger, but what i can confirm is that without shadow of a doubt that you are a first class Muppet, how’s that for confirmation.

    Even the metro is on it now, 5 NUFC old boys who could return.
    Due to Mclaren looking for the right personalities the club could now turn to…….

    It maybe Back to the future, but it’ll be shit without Doc Brown!

  • 178 welshgeordie9 // Jun 18, 2015 at 4:10 PM

    To be honest though, I don’t know why, he won’t be in the first team that’s for sure.

    You know why they look at you in a strange way Cyprus ? Because your champions league patter is delusional.

    The only reason they are thinking of letting him go is to make way for Yohan, that’s all I can see.
    They would need to make as much money on this transfer to buy back Cabaye. Otherwise is just another story / rumor that happens every transfer window with Moussa.
