Cisse, a free agent, filled the holding role in central midfield during a 2-1 defeat to Hull in the Under-21 Premier League Cup at Belper Town's Christchurch Meadow.

Aaron McLean's double put the Tigers in control at the break before Callum Ball responded late on for Derby.

Cisse has been training with the Rams but this was the first time the 29-year-old Mali international, formerly of Reading and Bristol City, had experienced any match action during his time with the east midlands club.

Head coach Steve McClaren and goalkeeping coach Eric Steele were at Belper and watched from the stand.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
