#DeadlineDay: Sissoko Swaps Newcastle For Tottenham

Sissoko did not feature for Newcastle in the second tier of the EPL, after registering his desire to leave.

However, in a heartfelt goodbye to the club, the 27-year-old paid tribute to the Newcastle fanbase and expressed his belief that Rafa Benitez will guide the club back into the Premier League.

With all my heart… As you know, a new adventure begins for me. Despite the difficulties, I decided to join the Tottenham club. This choice was a necessity and I needed a new challenge. While I know that this decision can make sad or disappointed Newcastle fans, I want them to know that I will never forget. I’ve always played with heart for them and the club. I’ve enjoyed the atmosphere of St. James’ Park every game. I’ve liked living in Newcastle and I’ve found a warmth that contrasted with the cold of the English north. This heat around the club, initiated by the fans, has often warmed my heart while I was far from my friends and my family. There were good and bad times. Relegation was clearly an emotional pain for the whole city. But the heart of this city beats for this club and I have no doubt it will come back very quickly to the top level. It deserves it. This heart I felt it beat, scold, laugh, love and hate. But it is brave and warm. Personally, my three years at NUFC will remain unforgettable. I'll never forget it. And it will forever be in my heart and a part of me. Thank you all ! / Avec cœur. Comme vous le savez, une nouvelle aventure s'ouvre à moi. Malgré les difficultés que l'on m'a imposé, j'ai décidé de rejoindre le club de Tottenham. Ce choix était une nécessité et j'avais besoin de relever un nouveau défi. Même si je sais que cette décision peut rendre triste ou décevoir les fans de Newcastle, je veux qu'ils sachent que je ne les oublierai jamais. J'ai toujours joué avec cœur pour eux et le club. J'ai aimé l'ambiance de St James’ Park à chaque match. J'ai aimé vivre à Newcastle et j'y ai trouvé une chaleur qui tranchait avec le froid du nord anglais. Cette chaleur autour du club, initiée par les fans, m'a souvent réchauffé le cœur loin de mes amis et de ma famille. Il y a eu des bons et des mauvais moments. La relégation a été une douleur affective pour la ville toute entière. Mais le cœur de cette ville bat pour ce club et je ne doute pas qu'il va retrouver l'élite très vite. Ce cœur je l'ai senti battre, gronder, rire, détester et aimer. Il est vaillant et chaleureux. Mes 3 années à NUFC resteront inoubliables. Et pour toujours dans mon cœur.
