I don't know what Alan Pardew thinks about Mike Ashley's media outlet saying Newcastle are willing to offer Cisse for Loïc Rémy ... or even if he knows about it!
But Pardew has given Cisse his weekly endorsement saying his striker is ready to get among the goals again.
The Senegalese striker has been in chronic form of late, with his last Premier League strike coming in the win over Fulham on April 7.
Alan Pardew: “You’d have suspected his attitude to slip before this morning’s training session, but he was absolutely brilliant today, our best player on the training ground and that’s really good to see.
“His country’s out of the World Cup and he realises the importance of getting back scoring goals for us.
"He’s a big player for us and we need him in the goals for sure.
"I’ve been really boosted by his personality and performance."
