The controversy surrounding Newcastle’s new shirt sponsor has taken a new twist with star striker Papiss Cisse set to refuse to wear the kit bearing Wonga.com.
The Senegalese striker is a practicing Muslim and has protested to club officials on religious and ethical grounds about the pay-day loan company's deal.
