Papiss Cisse has said he “will never forget” Newcastle’s fans after leaving the club to join Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng. The striker said on Twitter: “I will be back as a supporter alongside them one day. Every goal I scored in that famous number nine shirt was for them.” Cisse, 31, leaves for an undisclosed fee following a four-and-a-half year spell at St James’ Park. A Senegal international, he scored 44 goals in 131 games for Newcastle. Cisse, who joined the Magpies from German club Freiburg, scored three times during the 2015-16 season, which ended with Newcastle being relegated to the Championship despite a late upturn in form under Rafael Benitez. He added: “I hope that the team are quickly back in the Premier League. “We had some great times together and hopefully under Rafa those times will return.”
