Newcastle Linked With Senegal International Striker


Metro is reporting that Newcastle United are interested in Senegal international striker Papiss Cisse.

Pappas Cisse – Newcastle linked with Bundesliga striker

It seems that Pappis has attracted interest from some English clubs since he scored an impressive 24 goals in 34 games for Bundesliga club SC Freiburg last season.

That record looks impressive,  and  his club have said that they have received three offers from three different club, and they have put a £13M price tag on the striker’s head.

That gives some doubt as to whether Newcastle owner Mike Ashley would bid £13M for a striker, given his rather frugal ways this summer,  so we’re not sure if there is any truth in this report.

But it would be interesting if Cisse joined his International team-mate Demba Ba on Tyneside, and it could also be that Newcastle shock us by signing some striker that has not yet been linked with the club.

Fulham, whom Newcastle beat 2-1 on Sunday afternoon at St, James’ Park, is thought to be one of the other two  clubs interested in the player, who is 6′ tall.

And according to the German magazine Kicker, Newcastle are among the clubs who are readying a bid for the player, but we wonder if that’s really true?

Cisse is 26 years old and signed for SC Freiburg in late December of 2009 from FC Metz for around £1.3M.

While at Metz, the Dakar Senegal born player, scored 28 goals in 72 appearances for the French club, and he has scored 7 goals in 9 appearances for Senegal.

We’re not sure if this report is close to the mark, but you never know.

    my sources say that we are not buying him. My sources i can not reveal but i also heard mike ashley is going to sell all the metal from sjp and replace it with duplo. Don’t quote me on this as it is just what i’ve been told. Seriously though great record. Never seen him play like but very good last year

    If we will-
    Sign Santon (world class player- I saw 90% of his games)
    Pieters or Sissokho (never saw them but I’ll take your word for their quality)
    and a decent striker
    and NOT BUY 1 of those-
    Muntari (linked with us continually in israel)
    Benayoun (he is the most overated player since beckham)
    and Carlton Cole
    Then our window was good, even though we missed our leaders and we lack experience

  • Ref burnsie, hotel rooms, players and agents.

    It’s going to be a bit like Goldilocks and the three bears when Barnetta goes to his room and finds someone sleeping in his bed.

    Messi is absolutely world class… but for me Ronaldo is BY FAR a better player… Ronaldo will take us to top 4… Messi won’t

    Why do people say Burnsie will lose cred if we don’t sign these 3 guys? Do people actually think that every potential deal goes through. They may have spoken to 20 players and agents, and signed 5. We will never know! They are all probably ready to sign, then Lamearse walks in and they book the next flight!
    Lay off Burnsie, and just hope that we do sign 3 players tomorrow!

    messi isnt proven until he does it in the best or toughest league which means he needs to move to england before he retires or gets too old.. whereas Ronaldo has did it in england and has comfortably done it in spain
