Papiss Cisse has left Newcastle United and it looks like he turned his back on three Premier League clubs – Hull City, Watford and West Brom – who were all reported to be keen to sign the 31 year-old striker.

But the 35 times capped Senegal International – who scored a phenomenal 16 goals for his country – opted for the huge wages in China, for a fee said to be around £5M.

Papiss Cisse – has left for China

That £5M can now be used by Rafa Benitez this summer to bring in more players to further strengthen the Newcastle squad for the upcoming Championship season.

Newcastle also  got his £45K/week wages off the wage bill and that will help control the running costs of the club this season.

Assuming we got £5M for Papiss, here’s the senior signings at the club so far this summer.

We are assuming Remy Cabella will sign for Marseille for around £7M – but still no official news on that.

We wonder why not?
