New NUFC No.9 Cissé Signs

10 years ago

Great news as Newcastle United have confirmed that the splendidly named Papiss Demba Rodney Cissé has now signed on the dotted line.

The player has signed a five and a half year deal and it has also been revealed that the number nine shirt will at last be filled. Happily Demba Ba has already indicated that his preference is number nineteen and we all look forward to that Demba telling us all how much he is looking forward to playing WITH the new Demba.

The fee is undisclosed which is increasingly becoming the norm but is widely believed to end up being around the £9m mark.

Combining Demba Ba’s 22 goals in his 31 matches in the Premier League with Cissé’s 37 in 65 Bundesliga games suggest the possibility of exciting times ahead.

Senegal kick-off their African Cup of Nations campaign this Saturday, I’ll be watching with interest.
