Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote has admitted he is flattered by the interest shown in him, amid reported interest from Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd. 

The Ivory Coast international has been a stand-out performer for Newcastle in the last 18 months and his impressive form has lead to interest from the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd with the Premiership trio all linked with a January move for the combative midfielder.

However, Tiote has insisted he is enjoying life with Newcastle but concedes he’s flattered to be linked with such clubs:

“I am flattered by clubs interested but there is nothing official,” he told skysports.com.

“When teams such as Chelsea, City, Liverpool, United are interested in you it makes you think twice, but I love Newcastle, I belong to Newcastle and I enjoy my life here.”

The 25-year-old still has over 6 years left on his current contract and boss Alan Pardew has warned it will take a huge offer to make them considering selling, and it’s reported that an offer in excess of £20m would be required.

    Fret not Cheick Tiote. Only when Liverpool, or more precisely Kenny Dalglish, wants to sign you, do you then think twice. Like the several mediocre players the king had signed recently, namely: the donkey (Carroll), and the mules (Downing & Henderson), you might pause to wonder if Dalglish wants you for your mediocrity?
