Newcastle reach Cisse agreement

Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse has agreed to wear the logo of sponsor Wonga on his shirt, Press Association Sport understands.

The 28-year-old Muslim had refused to display the pay-day loan company's branding on his kit because earning interest is forbidden by Islamic Law.

However, after several weeks of delicate negotiations, the Senegal international and the club have now found a solution and the player, who missed the club's pre-season training camp in Portugal as a result of his stance, will return to the fold.
