The French midfielder’s future was thrown into doubt this week after some quotes from his agent surfaced, where he hinted that Sissoko was open to a possible transfer away from St James’s Park.

Moussa Sissoko: “I’m happy here and happy to play for Newcastle.

“Every week, I try to give my best performance.

“I will go to the World Cup and then come back ready for the new season.

“It’s not very good, but if you finish in the top 10 it’s still a good effort, as last year we finished 16th.

“It’s better, and maybe next year we can finish in the top seven.

"In England, there’s a lot of good teams. You have got Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City, so it’s hard to finish in the top four or five, but we need to try. Next year we have to try to play better.”
