Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Moussa Sissoko has signed a new contract until 2023.
The Frenchman moved to North London in for a then club-record £30million transfer from Newcastle United after beating Everton to his signature (BBC).
Sissoko experienced a tough first couple of seasons at Spurs following his transfer but has since transformed his fortunes and has become somewhat of a cult hero among the faithful for his industrious performances.
He was named in the starting eleven for the Champions League final and was the unfortunate player who was adjudged to have handled the ball in the penalty area just moments into the match.
The 30-year-old missed out on a place in the French World Cup squad and had to watch his team mates crowned world champions, but has since forced his way back into Didier Deschamps’ set up.
He put his poor start at the club down to the fact that he was unable to complete a full pre-season due to injury but has certainly made up for his slow start in N17 (Football.London).
Sissoko has scored two goals in 132 appearances for Tottenham.
