Moussa Sissoko’s horrid time at Tottenham is close to an end, according to reports coming out from Turkey. The French international joined us at the start of last season for a fee of £30million from Newcastle United but he failed to live up to the expectations.

There were a number of clubs from France that wanted to take the midfielder off our books but it seems that the Frenchman is ready to join Trabzonspor. Turkish outlet Fanatik (h/t Turkish Football) claim that the club will take the 27-year-old on loan, and that they have finalised a deal too.

Speaking to Turkish Football, Muharrem Usta stated that talks are already progressing with Sissoko but there still are a few issues that need to be ironed out before the deal can be announced.

“We are in talks with Moussa Sissoko. He is a very important player, Tottenham paid £35 million for him. He didn’t live up to expectations last season but this can happen in football. We want to loan him and get his career back on track. Obviously Tottenham do not want to give up on a player they paid that kind of money for but we will see.”

Even though Sissoko had a good season with Newcastle, he couldn’t help the Magpies stay in the Premier League. After their relegation, it was a bit of a surprise seeing us sign the Frenchman, but things looked good for us as Sissoko had starred for France in their Euro 2016 run where they finished as runners-up.

However, that form could not be translated when putting on our white jerseys and the French midfielder barely provided quality for us. Sissoko didn’t score a single goal for us and only chipped in with four assists all season.

Daniel Levy would have wanted to recoup much of the money we spent in signing the midfielder but it seems that no club want to stump up anywhere close to the amount we paid for the 27-year-old. Sissoko would want to play more football too ahead of the new season as he would want to keep his place in the French national side ahead of the summer World Cup.

Playing in Turkey might not be the same challenge as playing in England but if Sissoko can prove his ability there, he could end up going to Russia for the World Cup and might even bring a good amount of money should any club decide to sign him next transfer window.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.

The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.

A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.

The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.

Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.

Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.

The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.

“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.

“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.

“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”

Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
