So according to this Newcastle United have got their man and if indeed the Magpies have won the race to sign highly rated Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko then there may be some who believe this could lead to the departure of one of two much sought after St James’ Park stars.

Sissoko is a box to box midfielder who has been targeted by many of Europe’s ‘Elite’ and Alan Pardew would struggle to find room for the French international unless he was considering his position on either Cheick Tiote or Yohan Cabaye, two players who have been in impressive form over the past 18 months.

Newcastle United have clearly enjoyed shopping in Ligue 1 over the past couple of years, bring in Cabaye, Romain Amalfitano, Mehdi Abeid and Sylvain Marveaux, with mixed results.

23 year old Sissoko has clearly outgrown Toulouse and the big midfielder has all the attributes to make it in the Premier League. The youngster has already amassed close to 200 top tier appearances and has won five national team caps including most recently playing his part in France’s battling draw against Spain last month.
