Newcastle boss Pardew eager for Bigirimana to learn from Tiote
Both players could feature tonight against Capital One Cup opponents Manchester United.
Pardew said: "Obviously, I am moulding him very much around Cheick and saying, 'Learn as much as you can'.
"He is 18, Bigi, and he has got the best years, obviously, ahead of him. He couldn't learn from a better player than Cheick Tiote - and if he gets anywhere near him, we will be absolutely delighted."
