According to a statement on the Toulouse club website, midfielder Moussa Sissoko is on his way to Newcastle United following a difficult negotiation period.
The Magpies have been snapping up French talent since the January transfer window opened and it appears that a deal for the powerful midfielder has finally gone through.
“Moussa Sissoko will not finish his contract with TFC,” a club statement read. “He's reached an agreement with Newcastle United Football Club for a definitive transfer which will take effect as of today.”
“He will therefore play in England in the Premier League."
The 22-year-old Sissoko has been capped six times by France and will join international teammates Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Mathieu Debuchy in the North East of England.
"I chose the English league because I think it's the most suited to my style of play," Sissoko told Toulouse's official channel.
"I chose Newcastle because it's a very good club, even though they are in a bad league position at the moment.
"They have quality players and we can see the great season they had last year. That motivated me to choose this club.
“It was important for me to choose a side where I can perform to my best and I think Newcastle are the ideal club."
Meanwhile, Newcastle have confirmed the capture of Massadio Haidara from Nancy for an undisclosed fee.
