Ibrahima Sissoko TEAMtalk

Newcastle United are reportedly on the verge of an agreement to sign midfielder Ibrahima Sissoko from Strasbourg.

The Sun claims that the deal could be worth £13million and that Steve Bruce wants everything in place so that they can have the 22-year-old ready to play by the time January transfer window opens.

It is understood that Sissoko will “jump” at the chance to play for the Magpies and is expected to be given permission to agree personal terms with the St James’ Park outfit once a fee is agreed.
