Cisse close to Sunderland switch
Thursday, 21 August 2008

Marseille say they have negotiated an "agreement in principle" for former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse to join Sunderland on a season-long loan, reports BBC.

Black Cats boss Roy Keane has made several summer signings but after his side lost their opening game to Liverpool he said he hoped to add more.
Cisse, 27, joined Liverpool in 2004 but only scored 15 goals in two injury-plagued seasons.
In July 2007 he joined Marseille on a permanent move after a loan spell.
Cisse, who was a member of Liverpool's Champions League-winning team in 2006, broke both legs during his time at Anfield, missing the 2006 World Cup because of the second injury.
But he seems to have made a full recovery, scoring 16 goals for Marseille last season, and has been keen to return to playing in the Premier League.
Keane has already signed Tottenham trio Teemu Tainio, Steed Malbranque, Pascal Chimbonda and El Hadji Diouf this summer.
