Graham Roberts has paid tribute to Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko amid reports that he could be set to leave the club.
The Times reported last week that the French midfielder could follow in the footsteps of Toby Alderweireld with a move to the Middle East.
Alderweireld ended his six-year stint in North London to complete a move to Qatari outfit Al-Duhail (Spurs official).
Sissoko has already been told by the club that he is surplus to requirements and can leave the club this summer (The Athletic).
The 31-year-old admitted prior to his involvement with France at Euro 2020 that he is open to leaving Tottenham after what he claims has been a difficult previous season for him and plans to sit down with the club to discuss his future.
Roberts praised the former Newcastle player by claiming that he came through a tough start to life at Spurs and always gave his all, whilst also recognising his generosity off the pitch.
If true want to wish a great person @MoussaSissoko lots of luck in his move away from Spurs. He done a lot behind the scenes as well for many of us charity work a really good manHis first period was hard at Spurs but soon became well loved by the fans and gaveeverything for badge

Sissoko has limited impact when in the Tottenham midfield, his athleticism cannot be questioned, however, he lacks the footballing ability to have a positive impact on our performances.
He is said to earn £80,000-a-week at the club and getting him off the wage bill to give the likes of Oliver Skipp the opportunity to be closer to Nuno’s first-team plans would be money well saved to put towards other transfer targets.
