Turkish Club’s Boss Confirm Talks With Tottenham Over A Potential Move For 27-year Old

Published

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.
