Moussa Sissoko of Tottenham.

Moussa Sissoko is widely expected to leave Tottenham in this summer transfer window, as manager Mauricio Pochettino prunes the squad. Even though the club have been criticised for not signing any player up until now, it appears that Sissoko is on his way out, according to The Evening Standard.

Turkish outfit Trabzonspor have emerged as the potential destination for the player. After having joined Spurs for £30million only last summer, few would have expected Sissoko to be on the market so soon. Yet, the 27-year-old has been unable to settle at Tottenham under Pochettino, and his first-team opportunities reduced significantly in the second half of last season.

It is regarded that the midfielder has no place in the starting line-up this season, as Spurs continue to be linked with a move for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley. Sissoko failed to even make it to the pre-season tour of the United States, although illness was cited as a reason. He did feature in the friendly win over Juventus. Marseille had been the likely destination for a long time, but the entry of Trabzonspor does make the transfer market interesting. However, it appears that Trabzonspor are finding it difficult to reach an agreement with Spurs.

Trabzonspor are understood to be keen on the player only on a temporary basis. They want to take the 27-year-old on loan, but it seems that chairman Daniel Levy is keen on letting the player leave on a permanent basis. Spurs are unlikely to sell Sissoko at a significant loss. The Turkish club’s vice-president Gencaga Meric has claimed that Sissoko is keen on joining the club, but is also finding it hard to convince the player about a loan move.

The move is extremely important for Sissoko in order to keep his place in the French national team. Since making the debut for France in 2009, the 27-year-old has featured in 52 games and has scored 2 goals. However, there is a serious danger of Sissoko missing out from the squad and the World Cup 2018, as a result of his lack of regular first-team opportunities at Spurs.

After being brought in as a key attacking midfielder on transfer deadline day, Sissoko failed to even score a single goal in the 2016/17 campaign.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.

The planning for the stadium seems way off at the moment but hopefully, the team can produce a string of wins and take our minds off this delayed timeline.
