Papiss Cisse has asked A.S. Roma manager Luciano Spalletti to 'come and get him' as he looks for a way out of Newcastle.
The Newcastle striker is said to be unhappy at St James' Park.
The revelation comes on the back of rumours that Cisse had stormed out of contract negotiations with the club.
'Cisse was so angry at the salary that Newcastle offered him that he nearly crashed his car', said one source. 'He was shaking in rage.'
'I'd be surprised if a deal wasn't completed by the end of the week.'
A deal between the two sides for the Newcastle striker is expected to reach somewhere in the region of €25 million.
