Spurs paid Newcastle £30million for Sissoko, 29, two summers ago.

However the France international started just 15 Premier League games last season, although he came on as a sub a further 18 times and scored once.

Capped 53 times, he was named in Les Bleus’ standby list for this summer’s World Cup finals.

Fenerbahce now want to sign the midfielder on loan with the option of a permanent deal.

They hope he can help them regain the Super Lig crown from Istanbul rivals Galatasaray, who pipped them by three points last season.

The Turkish transfer window remains open until September 1.

Frenchman Comolli, who ended a three-year spell at White Hart Lane in 2008, hopes to exploit his close relationship with the north London club to push through a deal.
