Newcastle midfielder Tiote "flattered" by Man Utd, Chelsea interest

Newcastle United midfielder Cheik Tiote admits he's "flattered" by the growing transfer interest in him.

Manager Alan Pardew voiced his concern over 25-year-old Tiote’s future earlier this month.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea have all shown interest in the former FC Twente midfielder, who said: "I am flattered but there is nothing official. When teams such as Chelsea, City, Liverpool and United are interested in you it makes you think twice, but I love Newcastle."
