Newcastle Set To Sell Another Star As Russian Transfer Window Still Open

8 years ago

Newcastle are in line to sell yet another player for big money with a Papiss Cisse transfer to Russia on the cards.

Many fans are unaware of the fact that just because the English transfer window has closed, it won’t necessarily be the end of United players being offloaded and the Ashley coffers filled up even more.

Not every country has the same transfer window period and so for example the Russian League has a transfer window that is open to February 27.

The rules are that a player can move to any league where their window is open, it doesn’t matter if the selling club is in a league where the window is shut.

Therefore a number of media are reporting that a Papiss Cisse transfer to Rubin Kazan is still very likely to happen, with the Newcastle striker unwanted on Tyneside.

As we are now well aware, the fact nobody can be brought in to replace him is immaterial, though borrowing yet another player in De Jong will no doubt be claimed as a ‘replacement’.
