Sissoko said that he want to play for a big club, which throws his future with Newcastle into question as the transfer window moves to a close, reports the Daily Mail.

Paris Saint Germain have expressed interest in the midfielder, but Sissoko has said he would like to stay in the Premier League. He also described Arsenal as the club of his heart, while Chelsea may also be interested in securing a transfer.

Sissoko will make a donation to charity after picking up a one-match suspension for collecting two yellow cards against West Ham, reports the Daily Mail.

Sissoko is making the donation as part of his apology to the club for picking up the unnecessary bookings. Newcastle lost the match 1-0, and played with 10 men for the final 15 minutes.

Sissoko managed to connect on his only shot on goal during France's win against Switzerland on Friday.

Sissoko was able to score France's fifth and final goal in Friday's match. The game was wide open at that point, considering that Switzerland was on the attack down multiple goals. While he managed to put one through the posts Friday, he might have a harder time replicating this performance when the competition gets tougher in tournament play.

Sissoko has begun running again, but his hamstring injury is likely to keep him out for Saturday's match against Swansea, the club's official web site reports.

Sissoko has not played since March 29 against Southampton, a match which marked the third time in four matches that Newcastle has been shut out. He'll be a welcome boost when he returns, but it doesn't appear likely to happen this weekend.

Sissoko picked up an injury while at the French national team's Clairefontaine base, the Shields Gazette reports.

Sissoko scored a brace in early March but has yet to get back on the score sheet since. Sissoko doesn't score often enough to be relevant in most fantasy formats, and this injury will just further his distance from fantasy squads.

Sissoko scored in the 10th minute and again in the 55th minute of Newcastle's 4-1 victory over Hull City on Saturday.

Sissoko, who had not scored since the end of November, was able to find the net twice Saturday. The French midfielder doesn't score often enough to warrant consideration in most fantasy formats.

Sissoko assisted on Loic Remy's 33rd minute goal in Newcastle's 3-1 victory over West Ham on Saturday.

Sissoko now has a goal and five assists on the season, providing a decent return on his relatively low cost in most fantasy formats.
