Newcastle have been rocked by the news that midfielder Cheick Tiote could miss the remainder of the season after injuring his knee while on African Cup of Nations duty with the Ivory Coast.
Tiote managed 90 minutes during the draw with Mali in January but the Newcastle enforcer was to play no further part in the competition although the full extent of the injury was unknown. Manager John Carver admitted communication was difficult and the club were happy to assess their player on his return after the final on Sunday [Ivory Coast won a sudden death penalty shoot-out against Ghana]. Although Tiote will undergo further tests it is believed that the player has suffered extensive damage with a projected 10 week absence in the first instance with many suggesting the player may not appear in a black and white shirt again following a year of transfer speculation; however with Mehdi Abeid, Jack Colback, Vernon Anita and Moussa Sissoko all capable of playing a central role his loss won’t hit the Magpies too hard.
