Cisse, who can play in defence or midfield, played in France and Portugal before joining Reading in 2007.

The 29-year-old also played for Bristol City and is a free agent after leaving Major League Soccer side the New England Revolution.

Dawkins, 25, has had loan spells in the MLS and with Aston Villa.

He has only played one game for Spurs but made four substitute appearances for Villa in the Premier League last season.
