future until the club have secured their Premier League status.
The former Liverpool striker, on loan from Marseille, has scored nine goals this season to help the club's fight against relegation but will not commit his future until the end of the campaign.
Sunderland have the first option on the France international and could sign Cisse on a permanent basis for £13m.

Reports have suggested the striker has already made up his mind and will not stay at the Stadium of Light beyond the end of the season.
But Cisse told L'Equipe: 'The journalists know more about my future than me apparently. I spoke with the chairman (Niall Quinn) a week ago about my future.
'It was a very positive chat. We are just waiting for the club to secure their Premier League status. Then we will take a decision.'
