​Tottenham Hotspur signed French international midfielder Moussa Sissoko from under the noses of Everton on Deadline Day last summer, for a fee believed to be around £30m from Newcastle United.

However after just one season at Spurs, it looks like Sissoko is already heading towards the exit after a very disappointing season in London. 

French newspaper L'Equipe claim (via Insidefubol) that the Frenchman's relationship with manager Mauricio Pochettino has soured to the point, where the pair are barely even on speaking terms.

Sissoko has made 24 league appearance for Spurs this season, but 16 of those have been as a substitute.

However, Sissoko did play 90 minutes for Spurs on Thursday night during their 6-1 drubbing of Leicester, but he was once again frustrating to watch and did not seem on the same wavelength as many of his team-mates despite the emphatic scoreline. 

It has been difficult for Sissoko to win a starting spot in the Spurs side this season as, the attacking quartet of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Heung Min Son and Christian Eriksen have all been playing to an insane level of consistency.

Reports claim that Spurs manager Pochettino was not behind the decision to bring in Sissoko last summer, and has failed to be convinced by the Frenchman's qualities during the opportunities given to the midfielder this season.

With it unlikely that the manager's opinion will change, Sissoko is likely to move away and search for first team football in order to win back his place in the French national team.
