Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote has rubbished claims that he is set to leave the club this summer by insisting that he is loving life in the Premier League, Sky Sports reports.

The 26-year-old has been one of the club’s key men in what has been a disappointing season that saw the Magpies hovering just above the drop zone, though his performances have caught the eye and he now has a number of high profile admirers.

Arsenal had been credited with an interest whilst Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow are also thought to be keen and speculation has mounted as the summer transfer window draws near.

However, whilst Tiote has admitted that it would be short sighted to rule anything out, he has insisted that he is happy where he is and will let his current club decide where his future lies.

“I have a contract with Newcastle. Unless they want to do business with another club, I will be a Newcastle player,” he said.

“I do enjoy the Premier League and want to play there for many years, but you never know in football.”

Tiote joined Newcastle from Dutch side FC Twente in 2010 for a fee of £3.5 million. He has since gone on to make 83 appearances for the Toon Army, scoring just once.
