The France international has been linked with a move to Turkey before the end of the transfer window, but the club have denied the reports

Fenerbahce are not interested in signing Moussa Sissoko from Tottenham, the Turkish club said in a statement.

Sissoko became Tottenham's joint-record signing when he joined from Newcastle United for a reported £30 million in 2016.

But the France international, left out of his country's World Cup-winning squad, has struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane.

Sissoko started 15 Premier League games last term and has only featured in one top-flight match so far in 2018-19, starting the 2-1 win at Newcastle.

He was not in the squad for Monday's victory at Manchester United and reports indicated Fenerbahce were keen to take the 29-year-old to Istanbul.

However, a club statement said: "In the public domain, the news that we are attempting to transfer Moussa Sissoko … does not reflect the truth.

"Regarding a transfer of Moussa Sissoko to our club, there has been no contact with the player, the manager or the club."
