Tottenham Hotspur have increased their offer for Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko, but they are still short of meeting his asking price, it has been claimed.

The French midfielder’s proposed move to north London has dominated headlines on deadline day, as Spurs look to push through a deal for the Newcastle United man.

The Magpies rejected a £16m bid from Spurs last night, and according to the BBC, Tottenham have slapped in a new offer for the player in the region of around £25m.

However, their latest offer is still short of the £30m Newcastle United are demanding for the midfielder before they sanction Sissoko’s departure on deadline day.

Everton have also barged into the chase for the 27-year-old midfielder, but it is unclear whether Newcastle United have yet accepted a bid from the Merseyside club.


Newcastle have also agreed to receive staged payments for Sissoko if one of his suitors accept the price they are demanding for the Frenchman.

Sissoko left the French national team camp earlier today to sort out his future, but it is still unclear whether he will finally get his wish to leave the Magpies before the window slams shut tonight.
