If a club wants him Moussa Sissoko says they need to call Newcastle

7 years ago

Moussa Sissoko has said that if a club is interested in signing him then they need to get in touch with Newcastle United and his agent.

I appear to be suffering a very bad case of deja vu because I’m sure I have read this interview at least two or three times before.

However, this is indeed yet another interview in France with the Newcastle midfielder, on this occasion with Foot Mercato.

As in the previous ones we are told…

Desperate to play Champions League football.

Ambition is to play for a ‘big’ club….

However, loves it at Newcastle, just works hard, knows nothing about any transfer talks in  the background, leaves it all to his agent, blah blah blah.

Moussa Sissoko;

“Everybody knows my agent and so if there is something, they’ll call him directly. Whatever is going on or not, I leave that to my agent.

“I don’t tell myself I absolutely want to leave or not – if that is going to happen, then it will.

“I’m good at Newcastle and I continue to work hard so that I will have the opportunity one day to play for a very big club and I would prefer to stay in the Premier League.”

Leaving in January?;

“It doesn’t just depend on me as I am under contract with Newcastle, so if a club wants me, they need to discuss with my agent and my club.

“Would the club (Newcastle) be willing to let me leave?  Any interested club needs to speak to Newcastle, with my agent, so everyone can reach an agreement.”

“I am 25 years old and I will be 26 years this year (August).”

Champions League;

“My wish is to play the Champions League, I want to play in it, I want to live the big games.

“If I have to leave Newcastle then this is something that I would take into consideration.”

France/Euros 2016 (to be held in France)

“For some time I have been regularly selected (for France) because I am first choice at my club and I have put in good performances.

“I’m not going to leave just to go and sit on the bench, there are many things to consider and to think about (if a club makes an offer) and I would take that decision with my agent.”
