MOUSSA SISSOKO has joined Nantes following Watford’s Premier League relegation.
Sissoko has signed a two-year contract with the Ligue 1 outfit following a £1.8million deal with the Hornets.
The French club shared a video on their personal website of the midfielder’s journey back to France, which ends with him donning the team’s official kit.
Nantes released the following statement: “FC Nantes and Watford Football Club (England, EFL Championship) have reached an agreement for the transfer of Moussa Sissoko (32).
“The midfielder has signed up for two seasons in favor of the Yellow and Green, thus linking him to the Club des Bords de l’Erdre until 2024.”
Sissoko became a Premier League regular in 2013 after joining Newcastle from Toulouse.
After three impressive years at St James’ Park, the France international moved to Tottenham.
The 32-year-old amassed a total of five goals and 16 assists in 201 appearances with Spurs.
The Frenchman’s five-year stint with the North Londoners saw him playing in the 2019 Champions League Final.
Sissoko’s impressive performances also saw him becoming a regular for the French national team and playing in the Euro 2016 Final.
The versatile midfielder signed with Watford last year but couldn’t help them avoid Championship relegation.
Sissoko amassed a total of two goals and one assist in 38 matches across all competitions during his time at Vicarage Road.
