Newcastle to rival Sunderland for Freiburg striker Papiss Cisse

Sunderland are keeping tabs on Freiburg striker Papiss Cisse's situation.

The Mirror says Sunderland are also chasing Senegalese striker Papiss Cisse but German side Freiburg want a big fee although that may come down during the window - and as they face a possible relegation.

Newcastle United could also be in for Cisse after a deal for Sochaux's Modibo Maiga collapsed due to a failed medical.
