A couple of years ago, no Spurs fan would have thought that Moussa Sissoko would ever be offered a new contract at the club.
The Frenchman looked like a complete flop of a signing after his first season in North London, with many fans groaning every time Poch sent him onto the pitch.
However, Sissoko is now one of the first names on the team sheet and has somehow turned his Spurs career around in the space of just a year.
With his powerful runs, tough tackling, and incredible physical presence, Sissoko was one of the club’s very best players last year.
With his contract running out in 2021, the club have now signed a new deal with the midfielder, keeping him at Spurs until 2023.
This will come as a big boost as the likes of Eriksen, Alderweireld, and Vertonghen may be leaving on frees at the end of this season.
Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to the contract news:
Fantastic news, the perfect time to lift the morale. Great footballing fairytale, a player critisced for supposedly not being good enough to play for the club.
Only to believe in his own ability and produce some wonderful performances to get supporters back on side, deserved. ??
