Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko has taken to social media to insist that he has not agreed a deal with any other club regarding a summer transfer. Marseille were previously reported to hold an interest in returning the former Toulouse player to Ligue 1, while claims from president Muharrem Usta that Super Lig side Trabzonspor had held talks over a move were later backed up by another prominent club official. Gencaga Meric suggested that discussions had progressed well and that Sissoko was "keen" on moving to Medical Park Arena on a loan basis.
