Newcastle have signed Senegalese striker Papiss Demba Cisse from Freiburg on a five-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The Premier League club confirmed the deal on Tuesday night and are thought to have spent in the region of £10million on the 26-year-old, who is an international team-mate of new Magpies strike partner Demba Ba.

Cisse has nine Bundesliga goals to his name so far this season and scored for his country in their 1-0 victory over Kenya in a warm-up game for the African Nations Cup, which gets under way in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon on Saturday.
