According to reports today, a number of Qatar Stars League sides have targeted the Senegal forward, whose£6million buy-out clause will be activated in July
Papiss Cisse can leave Newcastle for £6million this summer, but a couple of Turkish clubs want to take him loan this transfer window.
Something Alan Pardew won't allow because he knows neither club could afford to buy Cisse at the end of the loan deal.
Al-Rayyan lead the race and the Senegal international – still with three-and-a-half years left on his contract.
Newcastle wanted to swap Cisse for Borussia Monchengladbach’s Holland striker Luuk de Jong. But Cisse, who Toon signed from Freiburg two years ago, has no interest in a return to Germany.
