The Newcastle United fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that one of their midfielders is looking to exit the club this summer.
According to a report on Foot Mercato, Moussa Sissoko has revealed that he is looking to leave the North East side this summer.
The Frenchman appears reluctant to play football at Championship level and it appears any hope that Rafael Benitez has of keeping hold of the midfielder for next season’s push for an immediate return to the top flight.
Sissoko had an inconsistent season for the North East side last season, but his form appeared to pick up once Steve McClaren left the club and the Spaniard took over.
Benitez will be hoping that none of the other major players follow suit and will be keen to hold on to the likes of Andros Townsend and Ayoze Perez this summer.
Will Sissoko be missed at Newcastle? Let us know in the comments below!
