Newcastle United midfielder Momo Sissoko admits he's been played out of position by manager Alan Pardew.

Sissoko revealed France coach Didier Deschamps has joked with him about his forward role he is enjoying at Newcastle.

He said: "The day before playing the friendly against Germany (early in February), French team coach Didier Deschamps teased me about the number 10 position I have in Newcastle, telling me I should not expect to play just behind Karim Benzema.

"I don't consider myself as a playmaker, but at Newcastle, I bring my speed in the gaps."
