TOTTENHAM MIDFIELDER MOUSSA Sissoko has signed a two-year contract with Watford.

The 32-year-old, who represented France at Euro 2020, joins the Hornets in a deal worth around £3million, the PA news agency understands.

Sissoko had two years left on his contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but was not part of new boss Nuno Espirito Santo’s plans and is yet to feature this season.

He joined Spurs in 2016 as their club-record signing following a £30million move from Newcastle United and has played 202 times, scoring five goals.

The box-to-box midfielder played an integral role in helping the club to the Champions League final in 2018-19, while he was also part of the team that challenged for the Carabao Cup and Premier League.

He will provide good experience to the Hornets’ team as they return to the top tier following promotion from the Championship last term.
