Cisse to make Newcastle comeback in 'Wonga derby'

Papiss Cisse's return for Newcastle United will be in the 'Wonga derby' with Blackpool.

The Daily Mail says Cisse, whose dispute with the payday loan company has finally been resolved, has been included in the Newcastle squad which will travel to Blackpool.

Like Newcastle, Championship club Blackpool are sponsored by Wonga, who will be delighted that Cisse may well make his first appearance in their kit at last.

Cisse has been training alone and did not travel to Newcastle's training camp in Portugal last week because of his original refusal to wear the Wonga logo for religious and personal reasons.

Cisse's climbdown follows weeks of talks between the 28-year-old striker, his representatives, Wonga, the PFA and the club. The PFA are understood to have stepped in this week.
