Newcastle United transfer news: Magpies reject £1million bid for Cheick Tiote

Newcastle have reportedly rejected an initial £1million offer from UAE side Al Jazira for midfielder Cheick Tiote.

Tiote has reportedly handed in a transfer request at St. James’ Park as he does not want to be playing Championship football next season and Newcastle have agreed to sell at the right price.

According to UAE outlet the National, Newcastle have demanded a bid of at least £4million for the Ivory Coast midfielder and Al Jazira are currently reconsidering their position on the deal.

However, they are expected to return with a higher offer for Tiote and Newcastle are keen to offload their wantaway midfielder.

Tiote signed for the Magpies in 2010 and has amassed over 150 appearances for the club.
