Sissoko played for Liverpool between 2005 and 2008, and was a key part in the Reds side that lifted the English FA Cup back in 2006.

He made 87 appearances for Liverpool before joining Italian giants Juventus in January 2008 then switched to French club PSG two years later where won the league title in 2013.

After a short stint with Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, he spent two weeks on trial with West Brom in August 2016 but moved to India after failing to secure a deal with The Baggies.

Ternana becomes his tenth professional club having won the Spanish league title, Uefa Cup and Super Cup in 2004 with Valencia.

Sissoko made 34 appearances for Mali scoring twice and appeared at the 2004, 2008, 2010 and 2013 African Cup of Nations tournaments.
