The French midfielder has revealed he wants to quit the Magpies this summer after their relegation from the Premier League.

They are reported to have put a £9.5million bid in for the 26-year-old.

The story was first reported by influential French outfit L’Equipe, who also claim that Chelsea and Liverpool have enquired about Sissoko.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have long been linked with a move for highly-rated Brighton defender Lewis Dunk.

And there are claims that the Seagulls have turned down an offer from an unnamed side for the centre-half.

Chief executive Paul Barber confirmed they had “firmly rejected” a bid for the 24–year-old, who has also been linked with Everton and Crystal Palace.
