Tottenham midfielder Sissoko avoids FA charge

Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko has avoided an FA charge for his apparent stamp on Newcastle United winger Kenedy.

The French midfielder, playing against his former club, tangled with the Brazilian after fouling him and appeared to stand on the back of his leg.

The incident happened just before half-time of Spurs' 2-1 Premier League win on Saturday.

Sissoko evaded any punishment from referee Martin Atkinson at the time and as the match officials spotted it there will be no further action from the FA.
