Moussa Sissoko Will Sign For Spurs For £30M

10:28 pm, Wednesday, August 31st, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 23 Comments

After Spurs matched Everton’s £30M offer to Newcastle for Moussa Sissoko it  looks like Everton have pulled out of the running, so the way is open for Moussa to sign for Tottenham.

If it got to be a choice between Tottenham and Everton we knew Moussa would choose Sours, because they are a Champions League club.


So as long as Spurs can get the deal done in the next 30 minutes then Moussa should become a Spurs player and Newcastle get a whopping £30M.

If the deal is done in time then Newcastle come out of this and the summer transfer window in general looking golden.

We will have signed Christian Atsu on loan from Chelsea – still to be announced tonight – and signed 12 players in all and made a profit of £31M.

Not too bad – if Tottenham can get the deal done in time.

Comments welcome.

    Made a healthy profit on Sissoko and Widjnaldum. We’ll need it, but you can’t argue with the quality of those two pieces of business, nor the amazing reshaping of the squad. The season starts in earnest for us now, and I expect us to go from strength to strength as the campaign progresses.

    Remember when we got nobody “over the line” . . . .

    Raffa just does it, may not all be the best signings – but you can see clear signs of intelligence at work, he is not messing about.

    Daniel Levy agreed to 30M?! Proof that the transfer market HAS gone insane. Still won’t believe it until I see him in another strip.

  • 12 manxpie // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:37 PM

  • 16 Laurent Robert 32 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:38 PM

    Jimmy, I agree.

  • 17 expatmag // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:38 PM

    Anyone know what happened with Tiote?

    Last I read he was possibly going yo Burnley

  • 18 stuart no9 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:39 PM

    arch — raffas probably in bed now all tucked up . bet he has a good laugh in the morning

  • 19 toonking // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:40 PM

    All that contact he was meant to be doing with everton was probably being used in a discussion with spurs. Today was his last chance to get a move to a CL club. He would have loved a big CL club where wages will be massive but they didn’t bother showing interest so it had to be spurs and he used everton to keep the media distracted. (I assume)

  • 20 BandB // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:41 PM

    The club was delighted with the Everton deal.
    Now they are bricking it that Spurs will fanny about over Sissoko’s terms.
    Not a welcome development.

  • 21 giimps // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:42 PM

    Atsu in, hopefully Sissoko out for 30mil (when he ain’t worth 1/3 of that) and loads of our younguns and the likes of Rivière overtan,marveaux and Collo ,Taylor etc out the door, successful…?
    I would say so

  • 22 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:47 PM

  • 23 goommy // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:57 PM
