Cisse on brink of securing move back to England with Queens Park Rangers
Djibril Cisse hopes that QPR and Lazio can iron out the final details of a 4million move from Rome on Tuesday.
The Premier League side have already agreed personal terms with the former Liverpool and Sunderland striker but QPR have a tight budget and still want to sign Tottenham's Steven Pienaar and another defender.
Back to England: Djibril Cisse has found it tough at Lazio to hold a place
Manager Mark Hughes had wanted to sign Cisse on loan initially, with the option of making the move permanent in June.
However, both the player and Lazio have pushed for the deal to be permanent.
The 30-year-old has failed to gain a regular starting place at Lazio following his summer move from Panathinaikos.
