Tiote - Out Of Africa - But Could Be On The Bench

08 February 2013 12:28
Cheik Tiote is out of Africa and back with the Toon squad - and looking to win back his Newcastle United place.

Tiote flew into England on Wednesday after the Ivory Coast were knocked out of the African Cup of Nations at the weekend.

And he will train with his club team-mates on Friday ahead of Saturday’s game against Tottenham Hotspur.

The 26-year-old – who scored in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Nigeria – will be looking to take out his frustration at his country’s African Cup of Nations exit on Spurs.

However, Pardew will be reluctant to change a winning team at White Hart Lane, with Newcastle heading to North London on the back of successive victories against Chelsea and Aston Villa.
