Pardew On Cisse Transfer ‘There Has Been No Contact With Any Club’

8 years ago

When asked about the possibility of a Papiss Cisse transfer today, Alan Pardew was unequivocal in stating that there had been absolutely no contact with any club.

Though when it came to whether Cisse definitely wouldn’t leave in the near future, the manager hid behind the usual ‘ooh you never know at Newcastle’ and also revealed that it was touch and go as to whether the striker could play at Chelsea;

“His fitness is a little bit of a problem because he has got a niggly back injury and unfortunately today he trained and we’re still not sure whether he’ll make the Chelsea game.

“Is there any rumour in a transfer? Not at all. There has been no contact with any club.”

Journalist ‘So he’s definitely not leaving?’

“You never say definite at Newcastle, you are new here but trust me, never say definite.

“But there has been no bid for Papiss and for us going forward hopefully he’ll be an important player for us.”
