Newcastle were reportedly in talks to sign PSG youngster Moussa Sissako this summer. As the summer window was drawing to a close, the center-back was said to be making a decision between Brighton and Newcastle.
Neither deal was completed, and the 19-year-old stayed with the PSG U19s where he has since made 9 appearances with 2 assists.
However, the 19-year-old has been told he will be allowed to leave this month. Sissako has reportedly received a couple of offers already.
Moussa Sissako– allowed to leave PSG this month
The Mali U23 international is being pursued by Celtic as well as Utrecht in the Eredivisie. French Outlet RMC Sport have reported that Celtic made an approach last week for the defender. He also has a concrete offer from Utrecht.
We wonder if Newcastle are still interested in the 6’2″ defender. He likely won’t cost much, and we had a keen interest in him just six months ago.
Newcastle are trying to bring quality youngsters into the Academy and have set aside money to do so. We seem to have won the race to sign 16-year-old Reagan Thomson from Queens Park.
So hopefully, we’ll see a few youngsters in by the end of the month.
