The Mirror is reporting that Newcastle are ready to unload the out of form Papiss Cisse and want £10M for the Senegal striker next month.
Papiss Cisse – Newcastle may sell this player?
And that;s close to the fee Newcastle paid for Cisse almost two years ago, when we brought the striker in from SC Freiburg to partner his Senegal International colleague Demba Ba.
But the partnership never worked, although Cisse got the iconic number 9 shirt, and was off to a sensational start in the Premier League with 13 goals in 14 games to propel Newcastle to 5th place in the Premier League , and we qualified for the Europa League.
The Mirror is reporting that Russian sides Rubin Kazan and Anzhi Makhachkala, and German side Borussia Dortmund are interested in the 28 year-old, who has 27 goals in 76 total appearances for Newcastle.
However, we’d be very surprised if this story is true, especially since the sale is supposed to happen next month.
Newcastle need to keep all their players during the January transfer window, so we have a good squad, as we make a decent fight for a top six place, and maybe even a top four place in the Premier League.
And in any case it’s Sunday, when a lot of transfer stories always seem to come out – magically.
