Anderlecht reject chance to sign Sissoko

The Belgian outfit have turned down the chance to sign the former Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder following a two-week trial

Anderlecht have announced that they will not be signing free agent Mohamed Sissoko, despite the midfielder spending two weeks on trial with the club.

The former Liverpool and Juventus midfielder has been a free agent since September, after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain was terminated by mutual consent.

Despite the midfielder training for two weeks with the Belgian Pro League champions, the 28-year-old has failed to secure a permanent contract.

"Although Mohamed Sissoko could mean added value for RSCA due to his experience and leadership, we unfortunately have no agreement," general manager Herman van Holsbeeck said in a statement on Anderlecht's official website.

Sissoko made 37 appearances during his spell at PSG and also spent time out on loan at Fiorentina last season before his contract was terminated.
