Newcastle United are reportedly bracing themselves for big-money bids for their Ivorian midfielder Cheick Tiote.

The 26-year-old, who joined the Magpies from FC Twente in 2010, has emerged as one of the finest holding midfielders in the Premier League.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has remained firm on his desire not to sell Tiote, but Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea could all make their move, according to the Daily Express.

Tiote has 31 international caps to his name.
