Newcastle manager, Alan Pardew, is still unsure as to what Moussa Sissoko's best position is, and how to use him in the Magpies side. ""You could argue that Moussa Sissoko needs to define a position," Pardew told the Gazette. "He needs to find a position and he needs to be in the first team. If he’s going to play behind the striker, then he needs a few more goals. If he’s going to play through the middle, then who comes out? Is it going to be Cheik Tiote or Yohan Cabaye? Or is he going to play on the side, where he played for France and Toulouse?"
