According to SkySources, Turkish outfit Trabzonspor claim to have made a loan offer for Spurs 2016 Summer signing Moussa Sissoko, with the French international keen on the move.

Having made just 8 starts in all competitions for Spurs last Season, the right-winger cried out for a transfer in a damning interview with French outlet L’Equipe earlier this Summer, in which the 27 year old defined his season at Spurs as his ‘worst ever’.

Sissoko, who endured a goalless season at Tottenham after signing for a hefty £30 million on deadline day last Summer, has been rumoured to be leaving Spurs for months.

Initially, the Frenchman was expected to return to France with clubs like Toulouse and Marseille linked with the attacking midfielder.

However, in the end no deal materialised, but now at last a club might just be making a move.

As reported by SkySports, Turkish side Trabzonspor are eager to loan the French international, while Sissoko himself is apparently keen on the switch.

Although now it finally seems as though a deal may be taking shape, it is not quite the way Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy would have been hoping.

According to Trabzonspor Vice-Chairman Gencaga Meric, Spurs are looking to recoup most of the £30 million spent on Sissoko in August 2016 and therefore a loan deal does not interest the Tottenham hierarchy.

Speaking to Turkish-Futbol, Meric revealed:

“Sissoko is keen on joining, we have spoken with him and talks went well.”

“We have yet to convince Tottenham or their manager. Tottenham want to recoup most of what they invested in Sissoko but we want him on loan.”

“We have made our offer and are waiting for a decision.”

After impressing in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Juventus on Saturday, it is rumoured that Spurs may yet hold on to the 27 year old as the Frenchman continues to fight for his place in the team.

Look, I watched our game against Juventus and while I admit his performance was very impressive, we all know what the issue is with Sissoko. Consistency.

I’m not going to judge his worth on the back of one good performance. If it weren’t for his virus maybe he’d have been just as good in the International Champions Cup too, but we’ll never know.

I’d say find a permanent deal and get back any money we can, but that’s just my opinion. Have your estimations changed since his performance at the weekend? What do you make of the Moussa Sissoko situation?
