Newcastle's Papiss Cisse plans club talks over new shirt sponsor
by Saj Chowdhury and Ben Smith
Papiss Cisse is set to discuss his concerns about wearing the Newcastle shirt sponsored by a loans firm when he returns from duty with Senegal.
It is understood the 28-year-old striker wants to remain at the club, but is worried his Muslim beliefs would be compromised if he were seen to promote the company.
Professional Footballers' Association deputy chief Bobby Barnes said it was a "difficult situation", but hoped that the club would respect Cisse's views and there would be a "compromise".
