Tottenham have completed a £30m deal to sign Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle, after matching Everton’s bid for the midfielder late on deadline day.
Everton had an offer accepted, but withdrew their interest after failing to agree personal terms, allowing Spurs to secure the 27-year-old’s signature.
“I will give everything for you and the team. I hope we win a lot of games and titles,” Sissoko told Tottenham fans.
Sissoko said he had signed a five-year deal at White Hart Lane.
He is Tottenham’s second deadline-day signing following winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou’s arrival from Marseille.
The France international impressed in his country’s run to the Euro 2016 final this summer and stated his desire to leave St James’ Park after the club dropped down to the Championship.

“I spent three and a half years here. I gave everything for this club and I want to play some big games. For that I need to go somewhere else,” Sissoko told BBC World Football.
Sissoko joined Newcastle from Toulouse in January 2013 and has made 133 appearances for the Magpies, scoring 12 times.
