Sissoko: Spurs and Newcastle wanted me

Posted by

Mohamed Sissoko might have been unwanted at Liverpool but he was certainly desired by other clubs. The 22-year old Mali international who moved to Juventus earlier this week has revealed that he was also a target of two Premiership heavyweights.

Sky Sports quotes Sissoko telling The Mirror:

A lot of people were interested in me, notably Tottenham and Newcastle.

Sissoko is on international duty at the African Cup of Nations and would commence his Juventus career later this month. He is certainly a talented player and may he do well in the Italian Serie A.
