Earlier today it seemed Tottenham were the only team willing to take Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle United.

But now it appears Everton are in talks with the French midfielder, according to Sky Sports.

Spurs made an initial bid of £16 million plus £2 million in add-ons for the player. Newcastle rejected the offer, making it clear that they would only accept £30 million.

Daniel Levy is seemingly unwilling to pay such an amount for a 27-year-old with little resale value, even it the deal was structured so that Tottenham would pay five instalments of £6 million.

Everton, on the other hand, appear to be close to agreeing a deal for Sissoko. The midfielder has been linked with a number of European giants over the summer, including Real Madrid and Juventus.

Newcastle had originally slapped a £35 million asking price on the player, but their stance appears to have softened. Not enough, though, for Spurs to bring Sissoko to White Hart Lane.



  1. Levy = time waster. Not just re. Sissoko, but for anyone. This is exactly what he did with Soldado and Adebayor, sold both, had all Spurs fans thinking a replacement striker was inbound….and did nothing. The man’s should be prosecuted under the trade descriptions act.

  2. Where selling more players than we are buying & I’m worried we will be very thin on experience for the CL & top 4 finish.

  3. 30m for Sissoko , Levy is right not to part with that much for a 27 year old , glad he does not get held to ransom with the big moose on the well back we have enough cover . COYS

  4. Not until all spurs fans let Levy know that this is not right he will just keep doing this let find are voice on match day he said the new stadium money was not linked with the transfer money we just made 36 mill on so called deadwood and we buy a player today for 11 mill we are a joke and will be as long as Levy is boss
