Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas thinks midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been a bargain buy for Newcastle.
Tottenham, along with a host of other top European clubs such as Juventus and Inter Milan, were thought to be interested in signing the 23 year old, but the considerable French contingent at St James' Park dressing room convinced the dynamic midfielder to move to Tyneside.
"Most of their signings have gone straight in and have had the right impact," the Spurs boss said.
"Sissoko was a great grab. A couple of years ago he was being linked with the top clubs in the world and to get him at such a low price was a massive coup for them."
