Tottenham Hotspur are preparing for their Saturday matchup in the English Premier League with Southampton, but it appears that Daniel Levy is taking care of some contract business at the same time. The club have announced that Moussa Sissoko has signed a new contract that will keep him in north London until 2023.
We don’t have the details of the contract except for the length, but reports suggested that Sissoko’s initial contract with Tottenham Hotspur put him on wages that were around £80k/week, so he may push into six figures with this new deal depending on the terms.
Moussa Sissoko joined Tottenham on deadline day back in the summer of 2016 for at then-club record £31.5m. His first two seasons at the club were not great, given he was used in a myriad of positions and Mauricio Pochettino had trouble figuring out where he was best suited. The French International even commented on it for SpursTV:
That all changed last season as the midfielder found himself virtually undroppable after a series of solid performances where he played a hybrid role that allowed him to maraud forward in attack, but also provide support on the right flank. His ascension couldn’t have come at a better time, given the injuries that plagued the squad. It’s safe to say that Spurs probably would not have reached the Champions League final without some of his performances.
This is likely to be Sissoko’s final “big” contract of his career, given he is 30 years old and will be 34 when this contract expires. He’s already made 132 appearances for the club and will be adding to that total for the next four seasons.
