Cheick Tiote remains committed to Newcastle United.

The Journal says Tiote remains fully committed to Newcastle despite a fresh set of reports linking him with a move to Chelsea.

The Blues have been linked with a £30m double swoop for the Ivorian midfielder and keeper Tim Krul, who recently signed a four- year contract with a significant pay bump.

United will listen to offers around £15m for Tiote but a source close to the player insisted that Tiote remains "very settled" at St James' Park and won't push for a move.
