Sky transfer centre gives update on Sissoko bidding
By Harvey Byrne
Newcastle have not received any bids or enquiries for wantaway midfielder Moussa Sissoko, according to a report.
Sky Sports have claimed on their transfer centre blog (11.16am) that there has not been any move from suitors for the wantaway 27-year-old.
This follows claims from French newspaper L’Equipe that negotiations will take place between Everton and Sissoko’s representatives in France in the “coming days”.
Sissoko has made it clear that he wants to leave the North East club following their relegation from the Premier League and has played no part in the team’s opening two matches of the season, which resulted in back-to-back Championship defeats.
