Fenerbahce make late play for Newcastle’s Cisse

Turkish club Fenerbahce are set to lodge a £6million bid for Newcastle United’s Papiss Cisse.

Turkish club Fenerbahce are set to lodge a £6million bid for Newcastle United’s Papiss Cisse.

The Senegalese striker is out of favour at St James’ Park, having made just six starts for 15 appearances, and could be offloaded by the Magpies before Turkish transfer deadline on Monday afternoon.

The Daily Mail suggests that Fenerbahce will offer £6m for Cisse but the Toon are looking for something closer to £10m.

Muzzi Ozcan, the man who orchestrated Roberto Mancini’s shift to Galatasaray, is believed to be behind the potential move as Turkish league leaders Fenerbahce look to move further clear from their nearest rivals from Istanbul.
