PARIS Saint-Germain are not interested in a move for Newcastle United’s Moussa Sissoko this month, insists manager Laurent Blanc.

Reports earlier this week – which were later dismissed – suggested the midfielder was on the verge of a move to Paris.

However, Blanc has played down the prospect of the French champions bidding for the 25-year-old this month.

He said: “Moussa Sissoko does not have the profile we are looking in the winter transfer window.

“We must not forget that we are still subject to the rules of financial fair play.”

Meanwhile, Sissoko has taken to Twitter to insist his full focus is on Newcastle.

He posted: “I’m a professional player and I stay focused on my team NUFC #DontListenToRumours”
