Papiss Demba Cisse insists he'll come good at Newcastle United.

The former Freiberg striker appears rattled by the pace of the Premier League.

But he said: "I feel with more games I will get better. I already feel like I understand the English game and the style of play here.

"It has been hard but interesting to swap clubs and countries and it means you have time to get to know your team-mates for next season so I have a head-start. I am hoping I will play better when I am more settled.

"Great men have worn the No 9 shirt so I know exactly what it means. I feel good with this shirt and the fact they have given this shirt brings positive pressure."
