Moussa Sissoko has signed a new four-year contract with Tottenham, the club has announced.

The midfielder joined Spurs from Newcastle United in the summer of 2016 and endured a difficult first two seasons at the club. Despite his poor performances, Mauricio Pochettino stuck with him and his faith was repaid last term.

A couple of months into the 2018/19 season, Sissoko’s performances drastically improved and he suddenly became a fan favourite. No longer would Tottenham supporters complain when they saw his name in the starting line-up.

And now, Sissoko’s displays have been rewarded with a new long-term deal. It’s not often Spurs hand out four-year contracts to players over the age of 30, so the Frenchman’s extension demonstrates his importance to Pochettino and the club.

It is remarkable to think that this news is now widely celebrated among the Tottenham support when a year ago Sissoko was essentially a figure of fun.

The responses to the announcement on Twitter show to what degree the 30-year-old’s fortunes have been reversed over the last 12 months. It’s a delight to see and comes as a welcome respite to the recent mood around the club.
