It didn’t take Newcastle fans on Twitter long to express their joy at the news that Everton have agreed to pay Newcastle £30M for Moussa Sissoko – a player who is not exactly adored on Tyneside.
Maybe because Moussa played more good games for France in the Euro 2016 Championships than he did in the whole of last season for Newcastle, when we were relegated.
Maybe that’s it?
Moussa Sissoko – did he want to leave Newcastle?
Looks like it
This is a great deal for Newcastle – we only want players who want to be at Newcastle at this time and be part of the Rafa revolution – and they have to have big hearts too.
Certainly all our new signings seem like great lads who were anxious to join the club – so given that – it’s probably appropriate that Sissoko leaves.

Sissoko wanted champions league football, signs her Everton. He's that desperate to get out of here. #NUFC

We have built a team that wants to play #nufc under Rafa and made a profit. Couldn't be happier with this transfer window.
