Newcastle Could End The Contract Of This Player In January


Cheick Tiote has been trying to leave Newcastle for about two years now and he has no future at the new Newcastle under manager Rafa Benitez.

Almost a year ago he almost left for top Chinese clubs Shanghai Shenhua and Beijing Guoan who both were reported to have bid for him in January but he couldn’t agree personal terms.

The transfer fee at that time was supposed to be £6M but it will be a lot less than that now with Cheick having just seven months left on his contract at Newcastle.

Newcastle could do a deal to make it easy for Cheick to leave the club next month.

They could end his contract and make him a free agent in the hope he could get a decent deal in China or they could even agree to terminate his contract for a given amount, which is what Newcastle did last season with Gabriel Obertan and Sylvain Marveaux to get their wages off the wage bill.

Cheick almost left for Turkish giants Galatasaray in late August, but it seems as though his wage demands were too high, although officially he is supposed to have failed his medical which sounds a little bit strange.

Cheick has no future at Newcastle but if we cannot sell him in January the only way the club would want to keep him through the summer is if Rafa wants to keep him as insurance in case we lose some of our central midfielders like Shelvey, Hayden or Colback to injury.

Rafa has left very little to chance this season, but maybe he will let Cheick leave for a low fee or nothing next month to get his £60K/month wages off the wage bill.

What do you think?

    I have finally stopped saying it would be madness to get rid of him, as Ed says terminate his contract if he wants it and bring in a replacement for Shelvey, we have Hayden and Colback to cover DM, we’d be pretty unlucky to lose them both.

    It’s about time Tiote moved on and stopped whaling on the Newcastle payroll. I have not heard a peep out of Tiote, as far as fighting to get back into the first team goes; that is over the last 18 months.

    We have Gouffran who turned down a loan move to fight for his first team place, then we have Tiote, who turned down moves to other clubs… seemingly to vacuum up his contract, and earn himself a nice little signing on fee at his next club. What a let down.

    “Cheick Tiote has been trying to leave Newcastle for about two years now”

    On the contrary…

    Did Gouffran turn down a move to fight for his place? Not sure that’s true mate

    He was going to have to take a pay cut to leave and decided to stay to earn more money

    I’ll be glad when he’s gone – he’s done jack for last 2/3 seasons …
    Gouffran by all accounts turned down a move back to France because it was significantly less wages so thought he would stick around on his toon wages until end of contract .. it’s worked out well for toon and gouffran

    As a rule of thumb.
    A loan move does not normally involve a wage cut .

    WWSBRD: I could be wrong, but I distinctly remember Gouffran being quoted as saying he turned down a loan move to Ligue 1, to fight for his place at Newcastle.

    Can I ask where you heard that Gouffran would be on less money, if he moved to Ligue 1?

    I’d be surprised if any of the Newcastle players that are currently out on loan, are on less wages than they earn/earned at Newcastle. Thauvin’s wages being subsidised at Marseille – for example.

    Anyways, I am sure Jib will be along soon to correct all errors, the resident ‘fact-checker’ that he is.

    I remember not so long ago, something about getting on with the neighbours and below the belt banter.

    How’s that working for you?

    Aye I remember a commentator in one of the French games early season saying the team interested couldn’t afford his wages or something. I’m not sure who it was though.

    Jail now avoids being hit below the belt by the simple expedient of removing his belt.
    This explains why his trousers drop round his ankles every time he gets a comedy kick up the pants from Jib and Welshgeordie.

    I remember the “just getting on with the neighbours” remark very well.

    I presume it means getting lots of custard pies in the face?

    It was actually Lorient in the summer and Lille in January that couldn’t afford his wages. I can now see why Jib is useless.

    Lille actually wanted to buy Gouffran but couldn’t afford wages, he turned down Wolves loan move and someone else I think

    It’s what was going round at the time to explain him turning down 3 (I think) French teams the loan was essentially a cancelling of his contract to move away but they wouldn’t match his wages and we wouldn’t pay them up from what I heard and read at the time anyway

    He was quoted as saying he turned them down to fight for his place but it as easy out saying that tbf

    Cheick Tioté 2 wives and a mistress!

    He has two children with his first wife, Madah. …it was reported by the Newcastle Chronicle that Tioté had married a second wife, Laeticia Doukrou, in the capital of the Ivory Coast, Abidjan. …Shortly afterwards, it was reported that upon hearing the news, his mistress, Nikki Mpofu, with whom he has a child, ended the three-year affair, telling him, “You clearly have a big family, I don’t think you can keep count of your wives any more.”

    I think Cheick would have got in his car and driven out of here long ago. If it was taxed. And he had valid insurance. Oh and if his driving licence was real. Oh and if he could get his car out of the pound.

    I suppose it’s not so bad if us and Brighton leave the rest behind. For as much as I would love to go up as champions, I would happily take 2nd if that’s what it takes.
    Still think we will be Champions though.
    Reading still losing but Norwich 1-0 now.

    Wigan tomorrow, I must admit they are not a club I have enjoyed playing against. Seem to have the ‘Jinx’ tag against the Toon. Would be very happy to really stuff them.

    Is it just me or do Brighton seem to have a few good decisions went in their favour lately?
    Red card in their favour against Leeds and another today…
