Cheick Tiote has 'no intention' to quit Newcastle despite Chelsea FC interest

Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tiote reportedly has "no intention" of leaving the club next month as he continues to be linked with Chelsea and Manchester United.

Reports in recent weeks have suggested that Chelsea are ready to pay up to £20million for the Ivory Coast international, who cost the Magpies just £3.5m less than eighteen months ago, while United have also shown interest.

But according to The Journal, a source close to the tough-tackler told the Newcastle-based newspaper that he has no plans to quit Tyneside in January.

Tiote, who recently moved house, is said to be "very happy" at St James' Park, although the same was said of Andy Carroll twelve months ago before he joined Liverpool in a £35m deal.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew last month warned clubs that Tiote, who could return from injury at the weekend, would only be sold if somebody was prepared to break the bank.

The Toon boss did not rule out a move in January, but recently insisted: "It is going to cost a hell of a lot of money, a hell of a lot of money because we’re in that position now.

"I think any of our players that get linked to other clubs, those clubs are going to need to know they’ll need to pay a shed load of money to get anyone out of this football club."

He added: "I don’t envisage anyone going out in this ­window.

"But if a club, one of the top clubs, comes in and wants to pay way, way over the odds we’ll have to look at it."
