Tottenham Hotspur have not bid for Newcastle United’s Moussa Sissoko – despite reports linking them with an £18million move for the midfielder.

Chelsea are also said to be interested in Sissoko.

It has been claimed in France that Tottenham are ready to move for Sissoko.

But Newcastle have not received an offer for the 25-year-old, who this week indicated he was ‘happy’ to stay at St James’s Park.

Sissoko said: “I know the club want me to stay, and this year they will bring in some players.

“We have a good team so we can do something good – better than last year, because the last six months of last year was very poor.
