Tottenham £5million-a-year fringe player vows to impress, explains poor form
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko has dismissed reports linking him with a move away from White Hart Lane and insists he plans to stay with the club.
The 27-year-old has revealed he is taking time to adapt to Mauricio Pochettino’s style following his £30million arrival in the summer from Newcastle.
Calaciomercato report that the France international is a target for Italian giants AC Milan.
However, he has vowed to impress supporters and doesn’t want to leave the club in the summer.
Spurs fans have been bitterly disappointed with the midfielder’s performances so far, who is earning £5million-a-year at White Hart Lane.

“My future is at Tottenham and I’m trying to give my best,” Sissoko told beIN Sports. “I’m trying to learn because I have to get used to a new style of playing in a new team.”
Sissoko has endured a difficult spell since he moved to the north London club and has found himself become a fringe player.
The versatile midfielder, who can play in the centre or as a winger, moved to Spurs on the back of a strong tournament for France at Euro 2016.
However, he has been unable to recreate that kind of form and has fallen down the pecking order under Pochettino.
Sissoko has made 24 appearances this season across all competitions and is still without a single goal, despite his big-money summer move.
He has found himself stuck behind the likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Heung-Min Son and Erik Lamela, but still believes he can have a good future with the club.
