Tiote: Newcastle ideal club for me

Cheik Tiote says Newcastle United is the right club for hum.

Tiote arrived in the summer from Dutch champs FC Twente.

"It has been quite a special summer for me. I am settling in very well and everything is good," the midfielder told the Evening Chronicle

"For me Newcastle is perfect. Firstly it is a club I already love, and it is a big club.

"It isn't a small team - it's Newcastle, you know? I know the history of the club well. It is different here. The fans seem to be so passionate and I've heard a lot about them.

"There were nearly 50,000 here for the Blackpool game which is amazing. The club is very professional. I'm very happy here."
