It had been reported that deals from both clubs had been agreed upon and that it was up to Sissako to decide between the two.
Moussa Sissako must decide between Newcastle United and Brighton. According to reports in the France, the PSG youngster will make his decision in the next 24 hours. Four-year deal on the table. #NUFC #BHAFC https://t.co/D2lZOpi490 pic.twitter.com/yl72GgwuMM

However, it appears that while both clubs did have contract proposals on the table neither could reach a full agreement. We would expect Newcastle to continue to work on getting Sissako to Newcastle over the course of this year.
Bruce recently mentioned that the club are going to invest in the U23 squad. They also should be announcing the signing of 20-year-old defender Ludwig Francillette in the near future.
We hope that they are able to continue strengthening the U23s as they have failed to produce many first-teamers over the years. Though they do look to have a couple of local lads in Sean and Matty Longstaff set to come through big time.
