Papiss Demba Cisse in talks with Newcastle Utd over Wonga shirt
Newcastle United are involved in talks with Papiss Demba Cisse over his objections to wearing a Wonga-branded club shirt.
The striker, a devout Muslim, is understood to have offered to instead wear a jersey emblazoned with a charity logo this coming season.
Islam forbids the lending of money for interest, and Cisse has raised concerns with the club's hierarchy about United's new sponsors, controversial payday lenders Wonga.
