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.

Cheik Tiote is expected to return to Newcastle's lineup in week 19 after serving a one-match ban.

The midfielder picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Sunderland and the missed the week 18 match against Manchester United. He is now rested and could start week 19 against an injured Everton defense. Despite the likely inclusion in the squad, Tiote has been far from impressive after his return from injury this season and is only averaging three points per match. Avoid him in all formats.

Newcastle enforcer Cheick Tiote has been ruled out of the clash at Old Trafford on Boxing Day against Manchester United because of suspension.

The Ivorian midfielder picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in Sundays’ defeat to Sunderland following a number of persistent fouls during the first half of a tense Tyne-Wear derby. Tiote has just returned to the United squad following a recent calf strain but has failed to live up to his previous high standards with many questioning his inclusion in recent games. Mehdi Abeid would’ve been an option but is still struggling with a broken toe – although a pain-killing injection will help – while Vernon Anita has a chance to come in from the cold as Newcastle struggle with a number of midfielders out. However great news for Jonas Gutierrez who steps up his recovery from testicular cancer by playing for the under-21 side on Monday.

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.

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.

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.
