Tottenham have been linked with Newcasyle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko today and not just in the daily rags, but on Sky Sports News and other reliable sources.
The latest update is that Sissoko has left the French training camp to complete a transfer, it does not state that it will be Tottenham, but you have to think they are one of the favourites considering all the gossip.

Moussa Sissoko given permission to leave France camp to complete transfer. Doesn't say where he's going though… https://t.co/NXRCVqCoka

The fee of course remains the biggest issue, Tottenham are not offering anywhere near what Newcastle want, so it may well not be White Hart Lane that Sissoko is heading towards.
Spurs are apparently offering no more than £15 Million, while Newcastle want £35 Million.
Seems some middle ground will have to be met here and a figure close to £25 Million seems more likely.
This one will be interesting today.
