Papiss Demba Cisse is looking forward to playing with Demba Ba at Newcastle United.

Ba has already scored 15 times but new signing Cisse warns his Senegal international team-mate will be even more dangerous when the pair link up in the Premier League next month.

Cisse, 26, who completed his £10million move from Freiburg yesterday, said: "Demba has had a brilliant season and it can only get better.

"It is going to be a great honour to play with him. He's a simply fantastic player and I think we are going to make a formidable partnership - one we hope will get the fans excited.

"There were others interested, but the moment Newcastle showed their interest there was only one place for me."
