Moussa Sissoko joined Tottenham for £30 million during the final hour of deadline day, but it might not have happened at all had it not been for a certain someone.
It appears Spurs captain Hugo Lloris played a big part in persuading his countryman to join the North London club.
In his first official interview as a Tottenham player, Sissoko revealed Lloris told him Spurs were the club for him.
