The powerful 23-year-old is hoping to start against Metalist Kharkiv at St James’s Park tomorrow night wearing his "lucky No7 shirt".
Moussa Sissoko: “When I arrived in Newcastle, I was told that many great players had done very well for the club wearing the No7 shirt.
“But I’m not giving myself any added pressure with that.
“I’m just going to go out there and play my own game, give as good as I can, and give the best performance I can.
“Obviously, wearing the No7 shirt, for me, doesn’t really change anything.
“I’m here, I want to play well, and I want the whole team to do well.”
