Cabaye Link To Transfer Target

9 years ago

Newcastle were quick to deny any move for Toulouse’s Moussa Sissoko yesterday following our reporting of the speculation ([intlink id=”19545″ type=”post”]Cabaye\’s International Teammate On His Way?[/intlink]), with Alan Pardew stating he knew nothing about it.

Today though the Chronicle are reporting a source close to Sissoko said;

“Moussa has had a chat with Yohan about the Premier League and what it is like in Newcastle. Yohan loves it at St.James’ Park so understandably he gave him a glowing report. They are both good friends so Moussa values what Yohan had to say”.

As we mentioned yesterday, they are now international colleagues with Sissoko finishing the creditable draw against Spain alongside Cabaye, but with all these stories you wonder how much it is adding two and two to make yet another transfer story.

Obviously spotting which is the one (transfer) that won’t get away is the tricky bit. Plus of course Debuchy being double friendly with Cabaye didn’t make things happen in the summer.
