Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko is set to join Trabzonspor on loan, according to reports in Turkey.

However, Italian outlet Tuttosport (via CalcioMercato) claims Sissoko could be on his way to Juventus.

Sissoko joined Spurs from Newcastle for £30 million last summer but endured a difficult first season at the club.

The 28-year-old has featured in both of Tottenham’s Premier League games so far this season, but there are rumblings he could still leave before the transfer deadline.

Turkish publication Fanatik believes Sissoko is set to fly to Turkey later today (Thursday) to complete a medical ahead of a season-long loan move to Trabzonspor.

The report suggests the Turkish club will pay Sissoko’s wages in full but there will be no loan fee involved.

Tuttosport contends that the France international is attracting interest from Serie A champions Juventus.

The Italian giants are thought to keen on a number of attacking midfielders, but CalcioMercato claims Sissoko might be “the easiest option at the current time.”

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Sissoko stay at Spurs. Although I can see him being forced out if the club moves for Ross Barkley.




  1. I think loans to both clubs are equally pointless. At Juventus, they are very sneaky and can afford to bench Sissoko. I wouldn’t be surprised if they benched him for a season and low balled us next summer. As for Turkey. Even if he scored 30 goals there and had the season of his life, his value wouldnt increase any as its still the Turkish league. Its like a player vortex where great players like RVP and Wesley sneijder have just disappeared to pasture (Sneijder now at Nice but equally forgotten). Its better (if no one else will take him) to offer him to a newly promoted team for season where he will get games and attract interest next summer.
