After Sissoko's latest show of disloyalty, should Newcastle ditch him?

The Newcastle United midfielder has once again spoken of his ambition to play at a higher level.

Moussa Sissoko has once again expressed his desire to play Champions League footall - and insists Newcastle did 'everything' to keep him this summer, according to the Shields Gazette.

Now, at a time when the St James' Park outfit need all of their players pulling together in the right direction, there are no two ways about it: that's another show of disloyalty from the 26-year-old.

Sissoko is quoted as telling Canal+ by the Shields Gazette: "I hope to play in the Champions League one day. Newcastle did everything to keep me."

But the best way to respond for Newcastle would be to turn to the 26-year-old and simply say 'off you go, then.'

So bad has Sissoko's form been, the Magpies would be well shot of him. The midfielder has shown no desire, no passion and no commitment to the cause.

He dreams of the Champions League and plays like the Championship - or worse...

Ironically, based on recent form, the Newcastle man would likely get no offers from the clubs he desires if he was transfer listed.

If there were any bids, Newcastle could make good money on him in January, which could be reinvested in the rest of the squad. And, if there weren't, the Frenchman would be forced to up his game.
