Rubin Kazan to go for Newcastle striker Cisse after Matavz transfer collapse

Rubin Kazan are ready to bid for Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse.

The Russians are turning to Cisse after a deal for PSV Eindhoven striker Tim Matavz collapsed this week.

Cisse has been a long-time target and it is believed Rubin Kazan would be prepared to fork out close to £9m for the player, says the Evening Chronicle.

That would match what Newcastle paid for the 28-year-old two years ago.
