Newcastle United are prepared to sell Cheick Tiote this month.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle have placed a £14million price tag on midfielder Tiote after rejecting a bid from Lokomotiv Moscow.

The Russians want Tiote to replace Lassana Diarra who is a target for Queens Park Rangers.

Tiote is understood to be interested in a move from St James' Park but, so far Lokomotiv have only offered £4m and Newcastle hope they will be put off by the valuation.
