Newcastle United have agreed to send Papiss Cisse to Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng for an undisclosed fee.
While the fee may be undisclosed, one has the feeling it is substantial, at least compared to the fee Cisse likely would fetch in other leagues. The CSL has been spending big money on bringing world talent to their league over the past few seasons, some who's prices have raised eyebrows. The departure of Cisse leaves Aleksandar Mitrovic as the clear-cut first choice striker while Ayoze Perez also will look to further develop under Rafa Benitez in the Championship. Papiss' previous season was rough, and his lack of production was one or many reasons the Magpies hit the relegation skids. However, he did produce some memorable moments for Newcastle in his time there, especially when he first arrived. Jul 10 - 11:28 AM
