The 27-year-old was the subject of interest from both Everton and Spurs on a hectic deadline day, who both tabled bids of £30million for the France international.

It seemed earlier in the evening that he would be making the move to Goodison Park but instead opted for Spurs, with the lure of London thought to be key in his final decision.

Sissoko, who has signed a five-year deal, impressed at Euro 2016 as hosts France lost to Portugal 1-0 in the final and had been with the squad as they prepared for their friendly with Italy on Thursday, and World Cup qualifier in Belarus on Tuesday.

Sissoko made 133 appearances for the Magpies, scoring 12 times, after joining from Toulouse in 2013.
