Speaking in an interview with Canal +, Moussa Sissoko moved to comment on the claims that he nearly signed for Everton on transfer deadline day.
“When I saw on the TV or in the news that I was in Everton or that I was supposed to sign for Everton. All of that was total rubbish. They wanted me at Everton. I didn’t hear anything else. Tottenham came in next. In my head it was clear I absolutely wanted to sign for them. Without wishing to offend Everton, Tottenham in my opinion is a bigger club than Everton. So for me it was better to go here. And I didn’t think more about it. I signed.”
