DONE DEAL: Newcastle striker completes China switch

Newcastle United striker Papiss Demba Cisse has completed a summer transfer to Chinese Super League club, Shandong Luneng.

The 31-year old has signed a four-year deal at the club after spending four-and-a-half years in the North East club, having joined from Freiburg.

Despite the fee officially being undisclosed, it is thought that it is around £5million, which by recent Chinese standards, is fairly cheap.

He scored 44 goals in 131 appearances for the Newcastle, who wished the striker best wishes via their club website.
