Papiss Cisse

Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse has no interest in joining Turkish side Trabzonspor, in spite of rumours linking him to the Super Lig outfit, according to the Chronicle.

The 28-year-old has only just resolved an issue relating to Wonga – the club’s new shirt sponsors for this season – a dispute that threatened to end the Senegal international’s spell at St James’ Park.

But the amicable end to that saga has not prevented further reports linking the forward with a move away, with recent speculation suggesting he is about to join Trabzonspor.

The No.9 is believed to be “mystified” by these reports and in fact received a warm reception during the Magpie’s recent 2-0 pre-season victory over St Mirren last week.

And the club’s joint-top goalscorer last season has no interest in moving to Turkey, which is good news for Newcastle, who need to add rather than detract from a squad that narrowly escaped relegation last season.

The North East club are on the verge of signing Lyon striker Baf timbi Gomis while talks over a loan-move for Loic Remy continue.

Manager Alan Pardew is keen on the QPR striker and almost signed the France international in January, but failed when the 26-year-old instead opted for a move to Loftus Road.
