Sunderland's on-loan Marseille striker revealed his transfer plans on Friday after reacting angrily to being told he would not be in the starting line-up at Bolton the following day.

Unhappy at being sacrificed for a safety-first 4-5-1 formation, his mood took another turn for the worse on hearing the lone striker's role had gone to his arch-rival Kenwyne Jones.

The pair have an intense dislike of each other, and Cisse responded to manager Ricky Sbragia's selection by going into what was described as a 'massive sulk' and repeatedly claiming he was bound for White Hart Lane at the end of the season.
