Tottenham Have Now Matched Everton’s £30M Bid For Sissoko

10:11 pm, Wednesday, August 31st, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 51 Comments

Well would you believe it but Lee Ryder and Pete Graves of Sky Sports were right as Tottenham are not out of the race for Moussa Sissoko yet, and Sky Sports is reporting that Spurs have matched Everton’s bid of £30M.

We should have kept to the original £35M.

🙂

There’s now less than an hour left of the summer transfer window so one of the clubs had better sign Moussa, and he would probably choose Spurs because they are in the Champions League.

Moussa Sissoko – Spurs have matched the Everton bid

Not sure how Spurs would get a medical done in time to sign Moussa Sissoko – things have been left so late.

    Let the bid war commence

  • 2 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:14 PM

    Right. Off to bed to watch the rest of this on my phone.

  • 3 manxpie // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:14 PM

    of course it all could be sky sports playing their own game
    seems to happen in the last hour every window

  • 4 Belfast // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:14 PM

    There is no bidding war – both bids accepted. Sissoko will be getting offered more money but that’s your lot.

  • 5 Rafa Revolution // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:15 PM

    waiting for a Chelsea etc to come in with a bigger bid lol

  • 6 stevie101182 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:15 PM

    Hahahahahaha 30m for sissoko and for the first time in a long time we don’t have to worry about getting a replacement as we have diame.

  • 7 ShirebrookToon // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:16 PM

    Watching SSN waiting for the incredible sulk to be sold. Who would have thought it could be so exciting to see a player FCUK OFF!!

  • 8 manxpie // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:16 PM

    aye ycmiu amazing to get rid of the deadwood plus strengthen the sqaud as a whole imo, but still think we needed another winger

  • 9 firebug666 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:16 PM

    Sulkie will be reversing back down the M6 as we speak, Spuds = CL football lmfao.

  • 10 toonking // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:16 PM

    Just as I made my last post another head line is printed part of what I want to hear but not yet confirmed

  • 11 Charlie in the Gallowgate // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:16 PM

    French radio station saying Sissoko agreed 5 year deal at the spuds

  • 12 Rafa Revolution // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:17 PM

    Less than an hour ro go and the Atsu deal still not announced!!!

  • 13 archaeomag // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:17 PM

    In France reporting 5 year deal with Spurs !!!
    +££,£££,£££

  • 14 Belfast // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:17 PM

    Why ? They would just match the two accepted offers.

  • 15 Shadow_Shearer // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:19 PM

    30 million has already been agreed with Everton, spurs have matched the offer. No bidding war. For 30 million I’d snap the hand off both offers, & tell sissoko take your choice.

  • 16 lesh // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:19 PM

    They’ve got under an hour to agree terms and have him medicalled. Could Sperz do it? Will we see Levy beaten at his own game?

    And given that Arsenal was Sissoko’s boyhood dream club, I wonder what sort of reception he’d get at White Hart Lane when he shows his true colours.

    An eenteresting window and it just shows what a difference a decent football man can make to running the club.

    And, well done to Charnley who’ll be glad to be able to relax for a little while.

  • 17 KevinHann // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:20 PM

    I’m surprised we got 2 clubs to bid 30 for him.

    Not surprising both of them are Premier League clubs though.

  • 18 archaeomag // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:20 PM

    So, any news on knockaert ?

  • 19 Shadow_Shearer // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:20 PM

    Correct me if am wrong anybody, but doesn’t loan deals have a longer window, so astu can sign tomorrow

  • 20 ShirebrookToon // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:20 PM

    Sulk has turned down Everton. He’s off to spuds.

  • 21 Belfast // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:20 PM

    Sounds like him and his agent done Everton good and proper haha

  • 22 firebug666 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:21 PM

    Sulkie stuffed the Evertonians eh! What a tw@ he is.

  • 23 Belfast // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    Couldn’t contact him for a couple of hours lol

    They’ve obviously just used Everton to get him his move to Spurs.

  • 24 2_goal_tino // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    Haha, Sissoko has been properly unprofessional to Everton. Agreed terms and then just went off the radar ignoring their calls and then said he doesn’t want to join. They learnt before it was too late what an absolute scrote he is!

  • 25 archaeomag // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    Everton = stalking horse

  • 26 Rafa Revolution // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    Shadow I believe when the window shuts tonight that’s it

  • 27 stuart no9 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    Wow soko to Spurs . What a knob

  • 28 lesh // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    If Sissoko’s turned Everton down, his reputation can only be further enhanced …… as a complete cad, a bounder!

  • 29 KevinHann // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    Come on guys, it’s so much more fun to see Tottenham pay over the odds, you have to admit it! I never thought I’d see the day 🙂

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

    Manx

    I think we can hang on for a winger. In rafas system, the wide players are more AM left and right rather than wingers, and the likes of goofy, perez, ritchie, atsu and even gayle can all play in that role.

  • 31 toonking // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:23 PM

    Sky sports saying sicko himself never had much contact with everton at all. either he knew spurs were planning a last minute deal or he should consider himself lucky to get this last minute tranfer bid.

  • 32 Rafa Revolution // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:23 PM

    Think the Toffee’s realise they have had a lucky escape

  • 33 stuart no9 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:23 PM

    Shadow . Yeah your right

  • 34 ShirebrookToon // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:23 PM

    He snubbed the toffees. Ignored all there phone calls and even a call from Koeman who was going to welcome him to the club. What a cock!!

  • 35 manxpie // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:23 PM

    the kernt didn’t even answer koemans call
    it would be funny as fusk if all goes wrong especially if the paper work was declared 2 mins late!!
    ok we lose out on 30mill for now but my god it would be funny

  • 36 firebug666 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:24 PM

    Shadow_Shearer

    New rules mate, it all has to be done tonight, and you cannot recall a lone player until the next window either.

  • 37 KevinHann // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:24 PM

    Anybody else thinking about how Nice are building somewhat of a reputation of resurrecting players from the dead? They pulled it off with Bennie but if they do the same with Balotelli it will be phenomenal!

  • 38 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:26 PM

    Im watching the bbc version of events. They are a bit off the pace.

  • 39 Rafa Revolution // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:26 PM

    Firebug I thought that is what it said on SSN earlier

  • 40 ShirebrookToon // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:26 PM

    Everton withdraw interest

  • 41 anthc // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:26 PM

    Everton may yet dodge a bullet!
    Sissoko stringing another club along….

  • 42 Shearer.Milburn // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:27 PM

    Everton literally dodged a bullet… Unlucky spuds.

  • 43 Belfast // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:27 PM

    Him and his agent have new all along and have been using Everton to get him his move to Spurs. If Spurs didn’t buckle he’d join Everton – The crafty sods.

  • 44 toonking // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:27 PM

    I’m sorry to the likes of Kane and ali for saying this but when you get a player as arragent as sicko it must happen. I hope and prey spurs get knocked out of the CL right away and fail to get any european football next season.

    Sicko is clearly an extremely spiteful player, look forward to seeing him bench warming the spurs bench.

  • 45 manxpie // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:28 PM

    yeah i’m just being greedy ycmiu lol
    glad the goof has stayed too plus looks like tiote is staying so he should help us get out of this league

    if you told me at the end of last season i’d be sat here now joking about being greedy with half an hour left of the window i’d of thought you were kets!

  • 46 Rafa Revolution // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:28 PM

    What an awful man he is

  • 47 firebug666 // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:29 PM

    Rafa Revolution

    Only PL club get 2 hours extra to cross the T’s and dot the I’s, But they have to have a transfer paper into the FA with the players signature on it by 11pm to get that 2 hours grace.

  • 48 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:30 PM

    Right. Just get it done. 30 mins left.

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

    I’d laugh my tits off if Spurs changed their mind at the last minute .
    See, he told everyone Spurs were his dream club . HB got mixed up between Spurs and arsenal . It’s so easy to do

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

    He**

  • 51 anthc // Aug 31, 2016 at 10:34 PM

    Atsu confirmed
