Cheick Tiote Biography
A dynamic midfield player who joined Newcastle United in the summer of 2010 after helping FC Twente to the Eredivisie title.
Cheick is a strong and physical player who plays in front of the back four in a defensive midfield role. He quickly adapted to English football producing some influential performances for United.
A highlight of his season came in February when he smashed in a late goal from 25 yards to complete the Magpies comeback from 4-0 down to draw 4-4 with Arsenal at St James' Park.
He was again an influential figure in 2011-12 when he formed an effective partnership with Yohan Cabaye in the centre of the park to inspire United to a top-five finish in the Barclays Premier League. Cheick began his career in his native Ivory Coast and later played for Anderlecht and FC Twente.
