Moussa Sissoko’s performance for Tottenham Hotspur against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday did not impress Rohan Ricketts.

Rohan Ricketts has stated on social networking site Twitter that he wants Moussa Sissoko to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

The former Tottenham attacking midfielder made the comments during the North London club’s Premier League game against Newcastle United away from home on Sunday afternoon.

Sissoko started the match for Spurs and played for 58 minutes, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side won 2-0.

Former Arsenal prospect Ricketts was following the match, and he was not pleased with the performance of the 27-year-old France international midfielder.

The 34-year-old wants the former Newcastle man to leave Spurs so that it frees up a place in the squad for a signing in the summer transfer window.

Sissoko joined Tottenham from Newcastle in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £30 million.

The Frenchman failed to make a massive impact at White Hart Lane during the 2016-17 campaign, and the midfielder has not started the new season strongly.

Dele Alli and Ben Davies were the goalscorers for Tottenham against Newcastle on Sunday afternoon.
