Cisse, 26, has been a phenomenon at St James's Park since his arrival, scoring 13 goals in 14 league appearances, prompting rumours of a big-money move this summer.

The Senegalese striker, though, is happy to look to long a future at the club and Champions League ambitions.

He told Sky Sports: "I am very happy in Newcastle and I want to stay there for many years.

"We were close to a Champions League position so next season hopefully we will qualify for that and everyone will taste the Champions League. I am looking forward to next season."

Cisse missed a penalty on Saturday as Senegal ran out 3-1 winners in World Cup qualifying against Liberia. They now face Gambia in the second match of the group stage next weekend.
