Newcastle rejected Arsenal, Cardiff offers for Cisse

Newcastle United resisted offers from Arsenal and Cardiff City for Papiss Cisse yesterday.

The Daily Express says the Gunners and Bluebirds made contact with Newcastle over a short-term deal for Cisse following the arrival of Dutch striker Luuk De Jong at St James' Park.

But the Magpies were only interested in a permanent deal and that requirement scuppered a move.
