Tiote has been the subject of interest from Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua, while it is understood a number of other clubs from the region are keeping tabs on the 29-year-old Ivorian.
However, McClaren is adamant Tiote remains part of his plans at St James' Park and wants him to stay as the Magpies get set for a relegation battle.
"Tiote has only been back training [following a knee injury] with us for two days but he's 100 per cent committed," McClaren said.
"If he keeps his composure and passes simply, he's a very good player. I hope he stays now."
