Report – Newcastle Close To Signing French Centre-back With Familiar Sounding Name

Get French Football News are reporting that Newcastle United are close to signing PSG’s 18-year-old central defender Moussa Sissako. Yes that name is correct!

The player is a PSG academy product with dual French and Malian citizenship. The youngster has a contract with PSG until 2021 but PSG coach Thomas Tuchel does not think he will make the grade in Paris. This is no slight on the player as PSG is a tough club to breakthrough.

There is still no word on how negotiations for Stanley N’Soki are going but reports earlier today stated that PSG wanted the deal wrapped up today.

It this signing happens, it is another youngster to go with Kyle Scott and Jake Turner who signed earlier this week.
