TURKISH club Trabzonspor have gone cool on a deadline-day swoop for Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse.

The 28-year-old is understood to have agreed personal terms on a move to with the Super Lig club, although it is unclear whether they had lodged an official bid with the Magpies.

But Trabzonspor have performed a U-turn after being offered Nigerian international Kalu Uche by Qatar club El Jaish SC for a cut-price £1 million.

Russian side Rubin Kazan have also been linked with Cisse, who – if he stays at Newcstle – is at only 50-50 to be fit for tomorrow’s derby clash with Sunderland.
