If Newcastle were ever interested in former Liverpool striker, Djibril Cisse, they will need to move quickly, as time seems to be running out.
Djibril Cisse – wants move back to England
Olympique Marseille Sports Director Jose Anigo has indicated that Cisse will need to make a decision on his future very shortly.
He is said to want to return back to England, and has been linked with Newcastle, Manchester City and Wigan, but his club Marseille have received no official offers for their player, although some enquiries have apparently been made.
Marseille sports director Jose Anigo told the clubâ€™s web site:
“The closer we get to the start of the season the less chance Djibril has of leaving,” “He knows the period after which his exit will become impossible.â€
“He has been frank with us, we know he wants to go back to England even though there has been no concrete offer.
“We consider Djibril as someone who’ll still be in Marseille for our season.â€
“If he stays it’ll be very good for us. We wouldn’t be able to replace him at such short notice.”
Recent reports in France are suggesting that Cisse has until the end of this week to arrange a transfer out of the south of France, if he is to move.
We have no idea if Newcastle were ever interested in the player, but there have been several reports over the summer that we were, and he can certainly score goals, and is very fast.
We wonder what happened to bringing 20 year-old Swiss Striker Eren Derdiyok to Tyneside?
Comments welcome – and if you would like a good laugh – watch the Jose video on the Keegan appointment at Newcastle in January – it’s under the videos on the right andÂ so funny.
