Papiss Cisse has offered to wear a charity's logo on his Newcastle United shirt after objecting to the team's new kit sponsor.

The striker, who is Muslim, has religious objections to wearing a shirt sponsored by short-term loan company Wonga.

The Mirror reports that the Senegalese forward is exploring the possibility of replacing the firm's logo with the name of a charity.
