Cisse – We Are Speaking With Clubs – Swansea And Others


With Swansea striker Wilfried Bony possibly moving to either Manchester City or Chelsea this month,  Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse, who is currently with the Senegal squad preparing for the African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea, has said today that Swansea are interested in signing him.

What?

Papiss Cisse – speaking with clubs on a transfer?

Swansea are looking for a striker to replace Ivory Coast International Wilfried Bony, who was once a Newcastle target, and in the Sun Papiss Cisse is surprisingly quoted as saying the following:

“We are speaking with a number of clubs, Swansea and others.”

That’s strange that he would say they are speaking with other clubs when he is still under contract at Newcastle,  and of course it doesn’t help that we do not have any head coach at the moment.

At the moment Papiss Cisse is the only experienced striker we have, and rather than selling him, we should be looking for another striker to come in this month, since we still haven’t replaced Loic Remy,  who left for Chelsea in the summer.

Unless  a player is in the last six months of his contract he is not supposed to be talking to other clubs, so Lee Charnley or somebody else at Newcastle should be trying to sort out why the 29 year-old has made these comments.

Cisse has been in great form for Newcastle so far this season, and has 9 goals in only 14 appearances for the club this term.

Papiss Cisse signed for us in January three years ago from SC Freiburg on a five and a half year contract, for around £9M – so his contract runs out in June, 2017 – that’s 30 months left on his Newcastle contract

    Maybe 15 since Swansea are getting 25+ for Bony.

    Don’t see this happening though. His fitness issues are pretty huge. Surely with that money they can buy someone better.

    If Ashley is serious about Rangers, which I’m sure he is, then he has a choice to make.
    The SFA is not going to let him increase his stake to 30 per cent, and he is facing stiff opposition internally now. He hasn’t time for legal challenges.
    There is also still a chance the Newcom could be wound-up, and if that happens all his merchandising rights become scraps of worthless paper.
    So an out of the blue sale of Newcastle is not as risible as some seem to think, especially while we are all distracted elsewhere.
    I’m not saying this rumour is true. I’m saying the idea isn’t laughable, and £240m is a credible figure.
    Some of us are making the mistake of talking about Rangers in exactly the same way as we hate the southern press talking about us.
    They are not a poxy little Jock club in a poxy little Jock league.

    Paper thin up front yet STILL the strikers we have are linked with a move away. Perez linked with others and so is Cisse. What is MA playing at?

    Beermonkey…something just doesn’t add up about this Jonathan Hope guy – just went to his twitter account and he his a business consultant that knows nothing of football and still he shares info about NUFC, QPR, AVF and WBA.

    Info that would be privilege if you are s business consultant.

    all depends on the ruling to be made in a scottish court at the end of this month but it looks like he’d prefer Rangers for reasons we’re not privy to…but it will of course all be about the potential to make more money for his empire so NUFC will be ditched at the drop of a hat if he can’t own both after the ruling.

    I don’t question the amount. It seems fair, but why appoint a manager now if a sale is imminent?

    I question the validity of the source. A convicted paedophile with a track record of lying isnt the most credible and if he’s involved as he claims then he’s surely breaking some rules by going public.

    From all the info I’ve read rangers dont have anywhere near the money and tv exposure as newcastle, so I can’t see what the interest is.

    However, Ashley clearly isn’t a huge football fan, therefore there must be something in it for him to be interested. I don’t know what but as you say, there must be something.

    The source seems very dodgy however appointing a manager isn’t an issue. A new man might be in talks and selecting the manager himself, just as believable.

    And also when most clubs are sold a manager is in place so they have to deal with him.

    TS,

    I am not sure but would Rangers not be a bigger brand globally? This making it easier to peddle his filth. Not to mention with little investment he could buy success. Plaster ibrox and the kits on sd logos and peddle his filth worldwide whilst barely spending a penny and raking in Cl revenue?

    Talking to clubs? Similar lack of control as in the Cabaye saga. Let him go for the right price and move on, with a new coach and some Wenger-like discipline.

    Don’t read anything into any tweet from Jon Hope, in fact just don’t read it
    Not only is he a fake football agent who’s claims have been shown up several times he also has a conviction against him for downloading child pornography

    Jesper,
    I’m not quite sure what you mean about a cheap shot, I’m just saying my piece on the strange transfer set up at the club, whatever Gomis wage demands were, if we bought Riverie solely on his age and his potential sell on value then so far it looks like we’ve been sold a dud. If we gambled that Gomis would join us on a free and save the transfer fee it would show that they learned nothing from the Loic Remy deal in exactly the same circumstances, but they probably did yet don’t care as pushing the team on isn’t an objective.

    He also claimed responsibility for the Welbeck move to arsenal. Even went on talk sport or BBC radio to talk about it only for it to be denied by the player and arsenal afterwards.

    Jail.. Your point about Gomis, whether we agree or not, should stand without trying to use the signing of Rivi to give it merit.

    We didn’t sign Gomis it seems because the deal wasn’t attractive (there have been posted alot of info about that could entail). Rivi was s gamble because again we were too little too late.

    It’s not like Gomis was the only candidate on that list. Someone made a comment about Bony which would be the valid point you were looking for.

    Does MA need any further control of Rangers when he already has the most profitable part of the club? He may need to secure his position but as official overall control is not possible what is the next best situation? Presuming he does not want to sell NUFC.

    might be why we’ve not appointed anyone yet.

    Maybe the decision to employ a new coach is completely dependant upon the court hearing at the end of this month. If the court ruling is good for ashley and he doesn’t need to sell NUFC then he’ll hire a new coach…if the court ruling is bad for ashley then he’ll he sell the club and stick with Carver til the club is sold.

    From what I read, the situation where a very minority shareholder is calling the shots in the boardroom is not acceptable beyond the short term to the main body of shareholders.

    Our over all transfer policy is a mess. The idea of buying talented players cheap is a good one and a one I like, nice to bring some young lads in and watch them develop…there are two problems:

    1. Not paying the extra little bit to get players (like bony, lacazette, etc)…would be worth pushing the boat out a bit more to get them or at least have bids accepted to start some serious negotiating with the player

    2. Not keeping enough of the better players…means we lack experience, we either need to keep more players or be willing to sign older players around 28-32 on short term deals to give the squad experience.

    “The Reds are also keen on a move for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, 24, and are considering making a £15m offer for the Belgium international.”

    If this is true then the lure of European football will be attractive but only an immediate certainty. In a perfect world we would out bid them and beat them to a Europa place next season.

    How much did Swansea pay for Bony?

    Not sure why the sudden re interest in Gomis, had a pretty underwhelming season and there were plenty of reports that Swansea were prepared to listen to bids from him

    In fairness to Gomis he can’t be judged yet, Swansea use one striker so had no chance with an inform bony ahead of him.

    From what I saw yesterday though he looks a clever player, just needs to start getting the goals his movement and play deserve.

    benteke is a bargain at 15 mil, would love to go for him

    I have always thought Cisse was a player that we have looked to get rid of and has probably wanted to leave for a while as well

    It would be typical that he returns to goal scoring form and then we sell him for a profit would score a shedload of goals the way Swansea play equally though if we play like the Chelsea first half from now on that Pardew is away then he would get goals for us as well

    Bony for 30 million well should be looking for about 20 because Cisse would be just as deadly although slightly older

    I hope we confirm Garde soon as the more I read about the whole thing the more excited I get !!
