There news that Moussa Sissoko just got his deal done in the nick of the time and is now a Spurs player means that Newcastle get £30M for him.
Newcastle have had a terrific transfer window with 12 players coming in for a total of £54.5M with all but one of them permanent deals.
The last player announced – Christian Atsu – has come in on a season loan and we have an option to buy him at the end of the season.
Newcastle also received £85.5M for six players sold this summer – Andros Townsend, Remy Cabella, Papiss Cisse, Gini Wijnaldum, Daryl Janmaat and Moussa Sissoko.
Notice that is more than we spent all of last season so we should be in really good financial shape because the wage bill was also reduced significantly.
