Newcastle striker Demba Ba has backed new signing Papiss Demba Cisse to be a success at the club.
Papiss made his Newcastle debut on Sunday, scoring a superb goal to give the Magpies a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.
"It was a great signing," said Demba. "I was very happy when he signed.
"I wasn't too bothered who we signed as long as we got a new striker it would help us. But fortunately for me it was someone from my country [Senegal] who I know well and I know how good he is."
