Sissoko turns down Liverpool move

The 17-year-old defensive midfielder has been tracked by several clubs.

Sissoko signed a three-year contract with the Pyrenean club.

He said: “I am happy, because I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time.

“I had the chance to leave for England, but it was perhaps a little too early in my career for that and it wasn’t necessarily a good idea.

“By working hard I hope to break into the first team squad as soon as possible.”
