Cisse eyes Marseille move

Djibril Cisse would relish a switch to Marseille at the end of the season

Djibril Cisse is eying a move back to Marseille after admitting playing in the npower Championship with QPR appears "complicated".

Rangers' two-year spell in the Barclays Premier League came to an end on Sunday with a goalless draw at Reading and Cisse, whose loan spell at Qatari club Al Gharafa expires at the end of the season, is already talking up a move away from Loftus Road.

The 32-year-old told France Football: "Given how it has gone for them from a sporting viewpoint, (a return to QPR) does seem complicated."

Cisse would relish a switch to Marseille, a club he joined on loan from Liverpool in 2006 before making the move permanent.

"It would be a dream to go back," said Cisse. "Or play for any club which can make me shine."

Cisse is hoping a move back to Europe can enhance his chances of representing France at the World Cup finals next summer.

"I have Les Bleus in my heart," he said. "If I'm in a good team and if I do a good job I think it's possible.

"I have a crazy mind and when I have a goal in mind I do everything to achieve it."
