Moussa Sissoko, the powerful French midfielder has signed for Newcastle United on a six and a half year deal. The 23 year old is 6’2″ and his been given the Number 7 shirt.
This is arguably Newcastle’s most exciting signing, and in case you’ve got a short memory, Harry Redknapp was set to offer Toulouse £15.5 million for him several years ago, and we got him for anywhere between £1 million – £3.5 million (depending on who you believe). Again, what’s impressed me after watching his interview with the official site is the character of the lad. He appears down to earth, and like the other players we’ve signed, prefers a night in rather than a night on the town.
It’s great to see the club sign the likes of Sissoko and Mapou on long-term deals because these are the kind of players that we want at Newcastle United. Players that are prepared to work hard, respect the club, respect the fans, and give their all.
