A move to Russia appears likely for Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse.

The People says Cisse is set to move to Russia after branding the club's Wonga shirt sponsorship was 'immoral'.

Russian club Rubin Kazan are ­leading the chase for the Newcastle striker, who refused to go on the club's pre-season tour to Portugal.

Zenit St Petersburg, Anzhi ­Makhachkala, Borussia Dortmund and several French clubs are also keen.
