Rumour Mill: Spurs Winger On His Way Out?

According to reports from TalkSport and The Daily Mail, Tottenham are prepared to offload 2016 Summer signing Moussa Sissoko before the end of the transfer window which slams shut on Thursday night.

It was on deadline day almost exactly a year ago when Moussa Sissoko joined the club from Newcastle for a hefty £30 million, at the time a new record for Spurs.

Initially, following impressive performances for France in the European Championships, this deal looked like a good piece of business, however over time Sissoko failed to prove his worth and was unable to score a single goal over the course of the entire season.

Earlier in the Summer, Sissoko claimed he was desperate to leave Spurs, describing his season at Tottenham as his ‘worst ever’ in a revealing interview with French outlet L’Equipe.

Now, after months of little to no interest in the attacking midfielder, Inter Milan are ready to secure the 27 year old’s services late in the window, according to reports from The Daily Mail.

TalkSport have also suggested that Inter Milan are plotting a move for the France international, but favour a loan move with the option to buy ahead of an up-front permanent transfer.

Daniel Levy is rumoured to be unwilling to agree to a loan move, as the Spurs Chairman is seemingly looking to recover most of the £30 million spent on Sissoko last Summer.

Recently, it had been reported that Turkish outfit Trabzonspor had agreed a loan deal with the Frenchman, but Levy stepped in and blocked the move despite the player’s eagerness to move on.

It is yet to be seen whether Levy can still tempt interested clubs into purchasing the midfielder, but it appears that a loan deal is most likely to develop than a permanent transfer.

Would you be disappointed to see Sissoko leave? Would you prefer that he stayed to fight for his place?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. No! Because for the price we paid he has been atrocious. had we paid 2 or 3 mill then happy to give him another season.

  2. I think there has been small signs of a change in Sissoko in both attitude and endevour, I would keep him for one more season, he's big and powerful and on his game he steam rolls defenses. It's not as though we've added more experience in midfield and attacking options, so really I question the wisdom of letting go a player who can and probably will potentially improve, and the same goes for Janssen in my book!

  3. Yes for Christ sake he is bloody useless take a hit and move on we need skill trickery and pace look at liverpools frontline
