Tottenham have sold Moussa Sissoko to Premier League newcomers Watford. 

The France international has signed a two-year contract at Vicarage Road, and is set to make his Hornets debut against Spurs.

The 32-year old has spent the past five years at Tottenham, having joined from Newcastle for a whopping £30million.

Sissoko was a disappointment during his first season at Spurs, but became a key member of Mauricio Pochettino's side - helping them reach the UEFA Champions League final in 2019.

He made 202 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring 5 goals.

Sissoko is Watford manager Xisco's second acquisition from Tottenham in this transfer window, with Danny Rose making the trek to Hertfordshire first.

With a gap opening up in their midfield roster, Spurs have signed Pape Matar Sarr from Metz.

The 18-year old has put pen-to-paper on a six-year deal, but has been immediately loaned back to the Ligue 1 club.

Sarr broke into the Metz first team last season, making 22 appearances for the Nord Est club in the French top flight.

The defensive midfielder's progress was so rapid that he made his debut for Senegal in March in their Africa Cup of Nations draw with Congo.
