Newcastle United will receive the full £30million they are owed from Tottenham Hotspur for Moussa Sissoko over the next four years, according to the Chronicle.

The media outlet claims the White Hart Lane outfit will still have to give the Magpies the whole transfer fee, should the player be moved on.

Tottenham have an agreement with Newcastle in which the transfer is structured, with payments of £6m-per-season over his five-year contract, which does not look likely to be completed.

Sissoko has openly admitted it has been a difficult time for him in North London, which seems to have angered some of the Spurs hierarchy and could see the France international’s time in the capital come to an end.

He told L’Equipe that he was to hold talks with manager Mauricio Pochettino and called for ‘honesty’ about what the boss plans were for him next season.

Sissoko has failed to impress during his short time at White Hart Lane, with many of the club’s faithful feeling he has been a major flop and the £30m paid for him was a waste of money that could have been spent better.

Tottenham will now be paying the price for the poor bit of business for the next four years to come, which may make Spurs think twice about their next transfer moves.


  1. Never understood why people said Tottenham would not have to pay the full amount if Sissoko left. If they sell him for a loss unless that caveat is in the Contract then they pay the full amount. Can’t see Ashley allowing Sissoko to leave and play for Tottenham with anything but full price (installments or up front).
