Newcastle fear losing Chelsea target Tiote

Newcastle United fear losing midfielder Cheik Tiote.

Toon chiefs are preparing for the expected departure of the Ivory Coast international.

The People says Tiote is a target for Chelsea.

A £3.5million buy from Twente last August, Tiote is out injured and any move to Stamford Bridge is not likely to come about until the summer.

But Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to sign the Newcastle player, especially with his midfield anchorman Oriol Romeu the subject of a buy-back option from former club Barcelona.
