Reports In Holland That Newcastle Agree Deal For Tiote


There are reports in Holland that Newcastle and FC Twente have reached an agreement today for the transfer of their Ivory Coast International Cheick Tioté.

Cheick Tiote – Newcastle agree deal for Ivory Coast midfielder

Of course nothing is final, especially with Newcastle, until it is reported on the Newcastle United web site, but it looks good that Newcastle will soon sign the 24 year-old defensive midfielder.

It is also being reported that the player has been withdrawn from the squad to play Heerenveen tonight , which is a game currently being played, and Tiote is not in the FC Twente side.

The Dutch papers are reporting that Tioté is the second player from Dutch Champions FC Twente to leave for the Premier League, with Ronnie Stam moving to Wigan earlier this summer.

We have to hope this move will be announced by Newcastle soon.

Comments welcome.

    Newcastle United Set To Complete Deal For Cheick Tiote

    Newcastle United have reportedly agreed a €4.2 million fee for Cheick Tiote and are set to conclude personal terms with the player and arrange a medical.

    According to The Daily Mail, the FC Twente defensive midfielder has arrived on Tyneside to complete talks.

    The 24-year-old has been capped eight times by Cote D’Ivoire and his transfer is subject to an approved work permit application.

    If true, deal will be completed on Monday if he attends the Villa match. If he is not there, I presume he is not signing till tuesday

    Nowt from L’OM regards Ben Arfa on NewsNow so I’m guessing he’s still over in France on his own!!!

    Good signing (if it’s true) for us, will need to drop Smudger to the bench or sell him now as we’ll have 8 CM in our team 🙁

    Fer – cant see both him and Tiote signing. Shame really, as we could try the two holding CM – playing midfield and not just infront of the back 4. Think brazil were quire good playing this way – but then of course you need pace up front and on the flanks

    I think the Fer story was a riuse to get Tiote, so that WBA didn’t see us hi-jacking their bid.. 🙂

    It would be nice to get Fer but we have players like Vuckic who’s of a similar age & it wouldn’t be fair on him to bring Fer in ahead of him!!!

    OT – The big question is, who will CH play against the mighty Accrington Stanley on Wednesday???

    I think he should play:

    Krul
    Tavernier – Kadar – Campbell – Tozer
    LuaLua – Vu?ki? – Ferguson – Símun Edmundsson
    Ranger – Xisco

    Give allthe young lads a try out & get players like Xisco & Sol some match time too 🙂
