Newcastle's New Wonga-Branded Kit.
Newcastle’s New Wonga-Branded Kit.

Senegalese striker Papiss Cisse and Newcastle have reached an agreement that will have the 28-year-old wear the Wonga branded shirt despite his religious commitments.

Muslim Cisse pulled out of the club’s pre-season tour because he was not prepared to wear the new kit sponsored by a money-lending company.

After a week of talks, both sides are satisfied with the outcome. The striker, who has been training alone while his teammates have been away in Portugal, will now be available for the Magpies and is expected to immediately rejoin the first team squad.

In October 2012, high-interest payday loans company Wonga signed a multimillion-pound shirt sponsorship deal with Newcastle in a move that was said to have sparked anger from some politicians and fans, worried that the deal could project the wrong image of the club. It is said the contract is worth around £8m a year to the Tyne side club.

Unlike Cisse, Harthem Ben Arfa, one of the other Muslims in the Newcastle squad has been wearing the Wonga-sponsored shirt. Nevertheless, Cisse is expected to follow suit soon.
