Mid-fielder Sissoko happy at Newcastle

London, Dec 26 (IANS) Newcastle United FC mid-fielder Moussa Sissoko insisted Friday that he is happy at Newcastle, despite interest from Arsenal.

The France international has impressed for the Magpies this season and that has alerted Arsene Wenger to his talents, with the Gunners boss mulling over a 16 million pounds move for the former Toulouse FC man, reports mirror.co.uk.
But Sissoko has cooled the transfer talk for now by declaring how comfortable and happy he is with his role at St. James’ Park.
“The coach (Alan Pardew) considers me an important part of the group particularly because of my international status and good performances for the team since arriving at Newcastle,” Sissoko said.
