French club Montpellier have denied that they are set to bring QPR striker Djibril Cisse back to France this summer, Sky Sports reports.

Cisse is looking to give his career a kick start after a frustrating spell with the west London big spenders and has expressed a desire to return to his native France ahead of next year’s World Cup.

He had been strongly linked with a move to Montpellier, with repots suggesting that personal terms had already been agreed, but the club’s chairman Louis Nicollin has denied the rumours by claiming that no contact has been made between the two.

Nicollin told Midi Libre: “Cisse? No, it is out of the question. I don’t want a guy who plays DJ in bars.

“It will not be Cisse or anyone else. We will play with (Emanuel) Herrera and (Gaetan) Charbonnier who are already at our club.

“We don’t need forwards, it is in defence that we need to take care of matters.”

The 31-year-old is expected to be one of the big name players set to leave Loftus Road this summer after suffering relegation to the Championship, and he spent the second half of last season on loan with Qatari side Al-Gharafa.
