Stoke City striker Mame Biram Diouf is also among the best players Newcastle United’s Papiss Cisse has played with.

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse has named summer signing Georginio Wijnaldum among the best players he has played with so far in his career.

Speaking on The Fantasy Football Club broadcast on Sky Sports 1 last Friday, the Senegal international included the former PSV midfielder in his 'One2Eleven'.

It is an interesting choice, as Wijnaldum joined the Premier League outfit from Dutch giants PSV only last month.

The 24-year-old was one of the better players in the Eredivisie last season, scoring 14 goals and creating 41 chances in 33 league matches.

The Netherlands international midfielder has scored one goal and created three chances in three Premier League appearances for Newcastle so far this season.

Wijnaldum has a pass accuracy of 82% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and has won four dribbles and two tackles.

Cisse, who has been on the books of Newcastle since 2012, has also picked the likes of Tim Krul, Fabricio Coloccini and Jack Colback in his team.

The former Freiburg star also considers Stoke City striker Mame Biram Diouf as one of the best players he has played with (both are Senegal international internationals.

Below is Cisse’s best XI comprising of the best players he has played with in his career so far:

Tim Krul

Daryl Janmaat - Fabricio Coloccini - Steven Taylor - Felix Bastians

Cheick Tiote - Jack Colback

Moussa Sissoko - Georginio Wijnaldum - Jonas Gutierrez

Mame Biram Diouf
