Ba tipping Cisse to settle well in Newcastle…provided it's not too cold

Demba Ba feels that fellow Senegalese striker Papiss Demba Cisse will adapt well to life with Newcastle United.

The former Freiburg man marked his Magpies debut with a match-winning goal against Aston Villa over a week ago before being on the wrong side of a 5-0 hammering by Tottenham on the weekend but Ba believes he will continue to settle in…as long as the cold weather doesn't hit too hard.

"It's not too bad at the moment, and as long as it doesn't go below zero and there's no snow, he should be OK," he joked to the Northern Echo.

"Seriously though, Papiss has come in and he's been made to feel welcome straight away. I'm sure he's going to be OK here, he'll be fine. We have a strong dressing room and he'll be part of that."
