Newcastle were closing in on another potential signing on Thursday as they edged towards a deal to land Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

Press Association Sport understands the Magpies are hopeful of clinching an agreement for the 23-year-old Frenchman after already signing compatriots Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Yoan Gouffran this month.

However, it remains to be seen whether Sissoko would arrive on Tyneside before the end of the winter transfer, or sign a pre-contract agreement which would see him join formally during the summer.
