French media reports Moussa Sissoko has 5-year contract agreement with Spurs

That's a relief.

Not long after Sky Sports dropped the news that Tottenham Hotspur matched Everton's bid for Moussa Sissoko and that the player preferred Spurs, we got a report about personal terms. Mohamed Bouhafsi of French outlet RMC reports that Moussa Sissoko has an agreement for a 5-year deal with Tottenham.

Bouhafsi and RMC have made some correct calls early during this window, but it's crazy that the news would drop this quickly. Since, you know, Sissoko's agent and Spurs weren't supposed to be able to talk about personal terms until the last hour or so.

Anyway, this is good news for anyone who was concerned about Spurs getting this deal across the line on time. It'll still be tight, but if Bouhafsi is to be believed, there won't be any kind of hang-up when it comes to negotiating the contract.
