Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko has given the clearest indication yet that he intends to remain on Tyneside.
Sissoko’s future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent days following the departure of Alan Pardew as Newcastle’s manager.
The 25-year old has been linked with moves to Arsenal and PSG but a tweet from Sissoko on Friday has given Newcastle fans hope that he will stay at St James' Park.
“I'm a professional player and I stay focused on my team NUFC #DontListenToRumours” Sissoko posted on social networking site Twitter.
France international Sissoko joined the club in 2013 from Toulouse where he made 218 appearances over six years in the South of France.
The midfielder has cemented his position in the middle of the pitch for Newcastle, scoring nine goals and contributing 10 assists in 78 appearances during his time in the north-east.
Sissoko has also earned 23 international caps for France and appeared as a substitute for Les Bleus in their 1-0 friendly win over Sweden in November.
