Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko says a move to the Premier League would be "a dream come true" amid reported interest from Newcastle United.

Sissoko, 23, is in the final year of his contract with Toulouse, meaning the Magpies could speak to him in January about a possible free transfer.

The prospect of a move to Tyneside is certainly an appealing one for the France international, who told Sky Sports: "To play in the Premier League would be a dream come true.

"It is a fantastic league and I enjoy watching it. Newcastle are a fantastic team and would be attractive to any player. I am no different."

Sissoko's comments come after Alan Pardew denied claims on Sunday that Newcastle had already secured a pre-contract agreement with Sissoko, describing it as "news to [him]" when asked.

The midfielder, who currently has five caps for France, is likely to start for Toulouse when they travel to Bordeaux on Sunday evening.
