Alan Pardew confirmed via Twitter that as long as Cheik Tiote has not had any setbacks during the international break, the defensive midfielder will be in the squad this weekend when Newcastle travel to Southampton.
Tiote may just be eased back with a bench role this weekend, but he is never a legitimate option in fantasy when starting, unless your league rewards yellow cards. It will help the Magpies in reality though as Tiote provides a necessary physical presence in the center of the pitch. Jack Colback, another defensive mid with a little more fantasy appeal, is also returning to fitness and should be available to Alan Pardew this coming weekend. Sep 11 - 8:52 PM

Cheik Tiote suffered a hamstring injury in training earlier this week, and is expected to miss several weeks. He is definitely out of Newcastle's matches against Chelsea and Tottenham.

It has been a stop-start year for Tiote with injuries and suspensions. However, the last thing that Newcastle needs at the moment is to lose another key player. They are going to limp into Stamford Bridge to face the in-form side in the league without their top attacking and defensive players.

Cheik Tiote had a stunning goal disallowed for offsides in the later stages of the first half that would have leveled the match with Manchester City, but Newcastle's efforts from then on could not find their way past Joe Hart, as the Magpies fall 0-2.

With no teammate behind the City defense touching the ball or masking the view or Hart, there was no advantage for Newcastle the moment Tiote struck a gorgeous blast from outside the 20 yard box, but the referee overruled the linesman and disallowed the goal much to Alan Pardew and Newcastle supporters' dismay. A rash of three yellow cards in the space of four minutes soon thereafter provided an intense atmosphere heading into halftime. Newcastle deserved something from this match, making City work extremely hard all afternoon. They will attempt to brush off the outcome next weekend when they travel to West Ham.

Newcastle United midfielder, Cheik Tiote, picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Crystal Palace and will miss Stoke City's visit on Boxing Day.

Newcastle will miss Tiote's physical presence against the Potters. His absence will allow Vurnon Anita to keep his place in midfield, and perhaps pave the way for Shola Ameobi to return to the starting eleven.

Newcastle midfielder Cheik Tiote was handed a suspended sentence after he admitted to having a fake drivers license.

Tiote, who was immense in defeat against Sunderland, could have faced jail time for the offence.

Cheik Tiote will miss his second consecutive match with a groin injury. He missed West Ham's visit to St James' Park last weekend and is now ruled out of Fulham's visit.

In his absence, Vurnon Anita deputized and Newcastle kept a clean sheet against the Hammers.

Assuming Yohan Cabaye is still unavailable, Vurnon Anita could come into the center of the park for the Magpies.

Tiote told the Chronicle: "I will be a Newcastle player next season. I want to play here for many years to come. I have a contract here and I am looking forward already to next season."

An in-form Tiote would be a boon to the Magpies. Hopefully for them his commitment to the team will rub off on fellow midfielder, Yohan Cabaye, who is angling for a move to Manchester United.

Russian power Lokomotiv Moscow could be interested in signing Cheik Tiote this summer in a bid to refresh their squad.

Tiote had a poor campaign, and Newcastle could be happy to bank a fee for him with Moussa Sissoko and Gael Bigirimana available to take over in the center of the park.
