Born: 16 August 1989 (Le Blanc-Mesnil, France)
Moussa Sissoko joined us from Newcastle United on August 31, 2016, signing a contract with the Club until 2021.
The powerful midfielder featured regularly during the opening months of 2017-18 and along with Eric Dier was one of only two players to have appeared in all games in all competitions until that run was broken in the 1-1 home draw with West Bromwich Albion on 25 November, 2017.
He scored his first Spurs goal in our 4-0 victory at Huddersfield in September, 2017, before netting in a home defeat to West Ham in the Carabao Cup the following month. In total, Moussa made 47 appearances in all competitions during that season in a series of different midfield roles.
Born in Le Blanc-Mesnil, he began his career in France with Toulouse where he established himself as a key figure during 219 appearances for the Ligue 1 club, scoring 23 goals.
Moussa made the move to the Premier League with the Magpies in January, 2013, representing them on 133 occasions and scoring 12 times.
He played 34 times in all competitions in his debut season at Spurs, including four appearances in the Champions League.
Having represented France at every level from Under-16 to Under-21, he made his senior international debut for Les Bleus in 2009 in a World Cup qualifying win over Faroe Islands and has gone on to claim over 50 caps, including being a member of the team that reached the Euro 2016 Final.
