Cisse, a Senegal international, joined Newcastle from Freiburg for £9m in January 2012 and was a huge success initially.

The 28-year-old scored 13 goals in his first 14 games for the Magpies and banged in another 13 last season.

However, he has slipped down the pecking order this term, following the arrival of French forward Loic Remy on loan from QPR.

And it has been reported that Cisse could be set for a lucrative switch to Qatar this month.

But, when asked if such a move was in the offing, Pardew said: "Not that I'm aware of, no.

"I can't confirm any bid from any club."

Cisse started on the bench again for Newcastle's 2-0 home loss to Manchester City on Sunday, coming on for the final 17 minutes plus stoppage-time.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
