Spurs sign Metz teenager Sarr, Sissoko joins Watford

Tottenham have signed teenage Metz midfielder Pape Matar Sarr and allowed Moussa Sissoko to join Watford.

Senegal international Sarr will remain on loan with Ligue 1 side Metz for the rest of the season before linking up with Spurs at a future date. The 18-year-old joined Metz from the Generation Foot Academy in Senegal last September and made 25 appearances for the club in the 2020-21 campaign.

Spurs wish Sissoko well

Sissoko will remain in the Premier League with newly promoted Watford on a two-year deal. The Hornets are reported to have paid around £3million for the 32-year-old midfielder. Sissoko, capped 71 times by France, made 202 appearances for Tottenham following his £30m move from Newcastle United in 2016.
