Manchester United and Chelsea are known to be keen admirers of the 26-year-old, but Tiote says that he is focused on playing for Newcastle.
Tiote told the Northern Echo: "I'm still a Newcastle player and everyone is working towards the game on Saturday. I am looking forward to it.
"For me, I am happy if I'm playing. I'm playing here at Newcastle and I am happy to be looking forward to the new season.
"We have some good players and we want to do the same as last season, if not better. It's exciting. I am just doing my job."
Newcastle start the Premier League season with a home game against Tottenham Hotspur.
