If you didn't know the arrival of Fabio Paratici as the Tottenham Hotspur managing director meant it was the beginning of a new era, now you know. 

It's been confirmed by multiple outlets the departure of yet another important player in recent years for Spurs, as Premier League's side Watford have signed the French midfielder, Moussa Sissoko


Football London's Alasdair Gold confirmed Moussa Sissoko is set to join Watford for an estimate fee of £3m.

"He is a very good player, everyone knows he is an experienced player," Watford manager said before the news were confirmed. "He is a top player and I think he would be very good for us.

We will see if he arrives. Always I say the same thing – we will have one option more in our squad to try to give all the best for our team."

Tottenham stint

Sissoko, who joined Spurs from Newcastle United in 2016 for £30m, was one of the key players during Mauricio Pochettino's stint in North London. 

The 32 year-old played regularly his first couple of years, including making a starting appearance in the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final, but his time on the pitch significantly decreased when Jose Mourinho was appointed Spurs manager.

It was known that the 'Lilywhites' board was trying to send him away this summer, especially after the successful loan-spell by Oliver Skippat Norwich City. 

In his time at North London, the Frenchman played 202 matches across all competitions. 

Sissoko joins Toby Alderweireld, Erik Lamela and Joe Hart as the first team players who have been shipped out by the Club during the summer transfer window.
