Newcastle are said to be in talks with Freiburg striker Papiss Demba Cisse according to Sky Sports News.
We were linked with the Senegal striker back in the summer and the striker even went on record to acknowledge our interest although unfortunately nothing come of it and Cisse remained at Freiburg.
So imagine my shock when I got in from work and turned Sky on to see this little chestnut rolling along the little yellow ‘breaking news’ ticker. I nearly spat my coffee out! However, with seconds seconds I was back in my defensive ‘wait and see’ mode, so that’s just what I’ll do.
Cisse has an outstanding goal record in the Bundesliga having scored 37 goals in 65 appearances which has alerted some of the bigger clubs in Europe. He is mates with Demba Ba and is also an international team-mate of his so perhaps our current goal machine has had a word in the ear of another goal machine?
More to follow. Maybe…
