Djibril Cisse is set to sign with Greek club Panathinaikos.

The Marseille striker, who spent last year on loan at Sunderland, is expected to put pen to a deal in the next few days.

"Nothing is signed yet but Cisse is arriving in Athens for the medical tests and to sign the contract," a Panathinaikos spokesman confirmed.

The 27-year old was forced to look for a new club after the Black Cats decided not to sign him on a permanent deal.
