Moussa Sissoko has pledged his immediate future to Newcastle – but admits he will consider his future in the summer.

Sissoko has been linked with a move to Napoli this month, but says he is focused on preparing well for Euro 16 championships.

The Frenchman has been picked in Didier Deschamps squads despite Newcastle’s struggles near the bottom of the Premier League, and says the fact he plays week in, week out is important in the build-up to the summer tournament.

“I do not think I will leave Newcastle,” Sissoko told Telefoot.

“The club will not want to let me go. And then the question arises about the timing, a few months before the Euros.

“I have been called up to the national team despite our results. I get to play every weekend and perform well.

“Like every player I dream of winning titles and matches in the biggest clubs. I will think about my future after the Euros.”
