Starting line-ups: Newcastle v Preston


Newcastle United winger allowed to leave France camp

Moussa Sissoko has been allowed to leave the France training camp at Clairefontaine as he looks to seal a move away from Newcastle United.

Tottenham Hotspur have been strongly linked with a move for the Frenchman who has little desire to play in the Championship.

In a tweet, the official feed for the France team said: "Moussa Sissoko was allowed by [France manager] Deschamps to leave Clairefontaine at 9am in order to complete a transfer."

Watford have signed defender Daryl Janmaat from Championship side Newcastle for an undisclosed fee, the club has announced.

Holland international Janmaat, who joined Newcastle in July 2014 from Feyenoord, has signed a four-year contract at Vicarage Road.

The 27-year-old said in quotes reported on "I'm really happy to be here, it's a new adventure for me. I was really pleased that Watford showed interest in me because I wanted to play in the Premier League.

"We [Newcastle] lost three times to Watford last season. They had a good season and I hope we can do the same again this year.

"The club is showing great ambition and wants to improve and I want to be part of that."

Janmaat made 77 appearances in all competitions for Newcastle, scoring four goals. His final outing for the Magpies came in a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Huddersfield Town earlier this month.

Newcastle forward Siem De Jong has joined Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven on a season-long loan.

The 27-year-old has only managed 26 appearances, just seven of them starts, during an injury-plagued two years in the north east.

De Jong has scored just twice during his time on Tyneside and will now return to Holland and link up with his brother Luuk, who also spent time on loan at St James' Park during the 2013/14 season, at PSV.

Siem de Jong told PSV's official website: "I am very happy to have signed for PSV."

On playing with his brother, he added: "I can't wait. I am fit and could join the squad for full training.

"I will try to find my rhythm the next few weeks. It's great to join a club that takes part in the UEFA Champions League and wants to retain the Dutch title.

"I am really grateful PSV have offered me this opportunity."
