Newcastle star Moussa Sissoko reportedly asks his agent to find him a new club

St James Park Two

The Newcastle United player will allegedly seek a move away from St James' Park sooner rather than later.

According to a report from Italian website Calcio Mercato, Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko has asked his agent to find him a new club this summer.

The French international has made 128 appearances for the Magpies, including 34 this season, but like many of his teammates he has been well below his best and had to wait until last weekend to score his first goal of the campaign.

Newcastle have shown signs of resurgence under new manager Rafa Benitez, defeating Swansea City 3-0 on Saturday before drawing 1-1 with Manchester City on Tuesday evening, but they still have plenty to do before their top-flight future is secured.

Such is the Premier League right now that it looks like being two from three of Newcastle, Sunderland and Norwich City who will join Aston Villa in the Championship next season.

However, whatever happens it seems Sissoko may not be at St James’ Park beyond the summer, with the latest report claiming the 26-year-old is interested in the prospect of playing for AC Milan.

The story goes on to claim that Newcastle’s relegation would ensure they would accept considerably less than their previous asking price of £14million for the player but that remains to be seen, as does their position regarding player exits if they remain a Premier League club.
