Newcastle target Moussa Sissoko has admitted that he is flattered by rumours of interest in his signature.

The Toulouse midfielder has been heavily linked with a switch to the Premier League side, as well as the likes of Anzhi Makhachkala and Juventus.

When asked about his future, the 23-year-old refused to rule out a switch away from Ligue 1, stating that he is happy to be the subject of interest:

“I have not yet decided what to do, I’m in a phase of reflection.” He told

“Juventus, Newcastle and Anzhi interested in me? I know nothing about it.

“Of course all these rumours please me, but that is the business of my agent, my uncle Bakary Sanogo.

“I have no preference about the type of league, the important thing for me is to play at a high level.

“Italy and England are historically among the major championships, but I want to clarify that I would not have any problem even to go to play in Russia.”

The French international has made over 150 appearances for his current club since breaking into the first-team set-up during 2007.

The holding midfielder has been on the radar of many of Europe’s top clubs for some time, with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool having been linked with moves on numerous occasions.
