Watford re-sign Moussa Sissoko

Watford have brought midfielder Moussa Sissoko back to the club on a two-year contract.

The former France international joins on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract at Ligue 1 side Nantes.

Sissoko, 34, reunites with his former team-mate and now manager Tom Cleverley having played for the Hornets in their 2021-22 Premier League campaign.

“It’s a statement signing,” Cleverley told watfordfc.com.

“I think it shows you the ambition that myself and the club have got moving forward.

“He brings a real powerhouse to the middle of the pitch; he’s a consistent performer.”

Another club who have boosted their ranks is Millwall after confirming a long-term deal with defender Japhet Tanganga.

The 25-year-old is already a familiar face at the Den, having spent the second half of the 2023-24 campaign on loan from Tottenham, making 18 appearances for the Lions and scoring twice.

Tanganga became a free agent after being released by Spurs last month and now joins Neil Harris’ squad on a permanent basis – he will join up with his team-mates ahead of Millwall’s pre-season friendly with Gillingham on Saturday.

He will be suspended for first three matches of the new Championship campaign due to a red card picked up on the final day of last season at Swansea.
