Newcastle boss Pardew excited about Cisse arrival

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is looking forward to seeing new signing Papiss Demba Cisse show his wares.

The former Freiburg man could make his Magpies debut against Aston Villa on Sunday after coming to the club following Senegal's failed spell in the African Cup of Nations and Pardew is excited.

"I don't think he is going to hesitate to shoot, so whether he starts or whether he comes off the bench on Sunday, you are going to see a directness from him," said Pardew who will also have leading scorer Demba Ba back in action.

"The two guys coming in certainly will have buoyed everybody, and I know there will be a fantastic atmosphere at our place.

"Whether Cisse starts, whether Demba starts or whether they come off the bench, they are going to have an impact of some type, and I am looking forward to it.

"It's going to be a great day for us, hopefully."
