Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has told reporters that the club will not be accepting any transfer bids for Papiss Cisse.
'He is an integral part of the team and we will do everything in our power to keep him', said the Newcastle manager.
The statement was made in response to media reports that Everton are planning to launch a €20 million bid for the Senegalese forward.
Despite Rafael Benitez's claims that Cisse is not for sale, one well-placed source at St James' Park has said that the club is willing to part ways with the Senegalese forward if an acceptable is received.
'If someone comes in with a bid of around €20 million, then I can see that being accepted.'
