Sissoko has been deployed as an attacking midfielder during his time at Newcastle - but he does not see himself playing in that role long-term.
"The main thing I lack is that I miss too many opportunities, I spoil it, I rush it," he explained.
"I was criticised for that at Toulouse, and there are also the critics at Newcastle. I score quite rarely considering the opportunities I get. I just have to take my time and be more accurate, be less powerful."
