Player Profile: Papiss Cisse

Anchorfan Transfer Tracker     on 24 May 2:32 pm     Football     348   0   1  

Name: Papiss Demba Cisse

Age: 26

Position: Striker

Current club: Newcastle United

Nationality: Senegalese

Caps: 17 (9 goals)

Estimated fee: £7-15m

Likely destinations: Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid

2011-12 Premier League stats: 14 games, 13 goals and 1 assist

Since his arrival from Freiburg in January Cisse has been a revelation on the Toon with nearly a goal a game as Newcastle chased Champions League football under Alan Pardew. The majority of his 13 goals in 14 Premier League games have been spectacular with the two against Chelsea particular highlights of one of the greatest Premier League seasons on record. Cisse is believed to have a £7m release-clause in his contract which has kept the likes of Spurs and Real Madrid interested in his services but, the fact that he is joined at the club by fellow countryman Demba Ba and has become an instant hit with the Tyneside faithful, it is likely that Cisse will sign improved terms with Newcastle this summer before moving on. Madrid's desire to sign the player will prove to be the biggest test of both player and club's respective resolve.
