Deadline day transfer news: Chelsea join Tottenham in making late move for Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko

31 Aug

Chelsea have joined Tottenham in the race for Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

The France international has been granted permission to leave St James’ Park in a deadline day move – if someone meets his £30m valuation.

Spurs have so far baulked at that price tag and they are only willing to pay around £18m for the 27-year-old.

That, according to L’Equipe, has allowed Chelsea to swoop in and they could now hijack Tottenham’s move for Sissoko.

The Blues are currently in talks with the player’s agent and a formal offer is expected this afternoon.

As well as Chelsea and Tottenham, West Brom have offered Sissoko the chance to return to the Premier League.
