Tiote happy to fight for Newcastle place

Cheick Tiote insists he's ready to fight his way back into the Newcastle United first team.

The Ivory Coast international returned from the Africa Cup of Nations last week but was only named on the bench at Tottenham on Saturday.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "Everybody likes a challenge and I'm no different. If you don't then you'll never go forward in life.

"For me it isn't a problem. I'll work hard all of the time to get my place."
