Former Watford and Tottenham star Moussa Sissoko has denied reports that he is being chased for more than £60,000 after he was accused of failing to pay his energy bill at his £3million flat in Mayfair.
The 33-year-old, who recently moved back to France to play for Nantes, has insisted a report in The Sun is a case of mistaken identity.
It was alleged that Yu Energy pursued Sissoko in the County Court Business Centre over an unpaid bill worth £61,700.

Sissoko, who played in England from 2013 to 2022, and his wife Marylou Sidibe moved out of the flat earlier this year when he opted to move back to his native country.
It was alleged that Yu Energy planned to continue their pursuit of him in France.
But Sissoko has since refuted the allegations on Twitter, insisting it is ‘a matter that doesn’t concern me’.

He posted: ‘@TheSun you used my name and image for a matter that doesn’t concern me. You have not verified your information and this is causing personal harm to me and my family.
‘Because of a namesake you sold paper on my back? Ok, I am filing a complaint against you and justice will do its job. You don’t smear people with impunity just to create buzz. Next time you’ll do your job better as a pseudo scandalous journalist.
Sissoko moved to Nantes in the summer for a fee of around £1million, ending a nine year stay in England following his original move to Newcastle United back in 2013.
His stay at Watford, however, was short lived after deciding to leave following their relegation from the Premier League after just one season.
He joined the Hornets in the summer of 2021 and went on to make 36 Premier League appearances last season, scoring two goals.
Sissoko has featured 11 times in all competitions, including Ligue 1 and Europa League matches since his switch this summer.
