Cisse set for Newcastle stay

Newcastle striker Papiss Demba Cisse has confirmed that he hopes to remain at Newcastle next season and spearhead the club's Europa League campaign.

Cisse, 26, has been in fine form since his arrival, scoring 13 goals in 14 games, to prompt talk of a summer move to a host of top clubs - including Real Madrid.

Signed from Freiburg in January, the lanky target-man's goals have inspired the Magpies to a phenomenal run of form that has seen Newcastle qualify for next season's Europa League.

The Senegalese striker told the Evening Chronicle: "I hope to continue scoring goals for Newcastle next season. I'm looking forward to playing in the Europa League. We wanted to play in the Champions League, but we can be very happy with what we have achieved this season.

"It's good to be in Europe next season, but I'm sorry for the supporters. We wanted to give them Champions League football. That was our objective. We are in the Europa League and I thank God for the season I have had. But we are still a little disappointed."
