Tiote to stay at Newcastle despite interest from big guns
Cheick Tiote will not be leaving Newcastle in this transfer window.
Despite speculation about a summer move away from the North East, Toon boss Alan Pardew has won the battle to keep the midfielder from the clutches of the Premier League big boys.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all been eyeing the Ivory Coast international.
But the four clubs have been scared off by £20million price-tag Newcastle have placed on the player and he will remain at St James' Park until the New Year at least.
